I was parsing my usual avenues to find religious articles when I stumbled across a confessional. "Well, thats an usual place for a confessional" I thought to myself." A design firm in San Francisco had picked up a confessional to use as decoration in a customers home. They imported it from France 5 years earlier and it never sold. I went into my usual banter with my follow up questions, "Do you have anything else religious?" Well, we have this checkout counter which is an old altar I believe," the voice on other end said. I told them to send me photos and let me work on it. They agreed and soon we found a buyer in Ohio for a beautiful mid 1850s hand carved Gothic Altar and rereads. It was an amazing find with great people behind it all. I think this business is the world's biggest treasure hunt sometimes but it sure does take a keen sense of direction and patience to convince people that what they have is worth selling and we can find a new home in a church for it. Stay tuned for more articles as time progresses.
A passionate person dedicated to picking the greatest religious items lost to time.
