....from Swimming to the White Elephant

Lynn, do you collect anything?
Yes, I collect friends, music and occasionally broken green pottery.
Why broken green pottery?
I like green pottery and I feel sorry for the broken ones.
When and how did you get into the appraisal of antiques?
Through my husband's Comedy Club, Rascal's, back in the early 90s. Seemed like a seamless transition from Competitive Swimming.
How's that?
He had a restaurant called "The White Elephant," which required frequent replenishment of "things to sell." I was a buyer for them. Obviously I used my very special swimming techniques.
Thanks, Lynn, for filling us all in. Now we know.
