Brian – Daryle Lambert's Antiques and Collectibles blog - A long way off.

 Let's have Fun

I have enjoyed the last 3 years of writing the blog for the Daryle Lambert's Antiques and Collectibles Club and I have to admit that through those years I have received some surprises but few compare with yesterday's. This story is almost impossible to believe.

I was sitting at my table doing appraisals for the Antique Trader and Chicago Antique Market when a very nice looking young man approached and said "I know you." For the life of me, I couldn't remember where I had seen this gentleman before. He convinced me, however, by calling Josh by name and sharing a few other pieces of information about myself. His name is Brian and I feel that to give his name is appropriate because he is a dealer at the market and deals in anything to do with lightning, like lightning rods. I have his card and if any of you have questions or items you wish to sell here is his website or email to

But back to the story. It will be much better if I let Brian tell how he knows me than if I attempt to, so here is a short letter he wrote.


I came across your blog while living in Bahrain. I would visit my wife's office and start cruising the net looking for all the information that I could obtain on antiques and collectibles. I ran across your blog and have followed it faithfully ever since. I have to admit that I have learned a lot from that old Kentucky boy with his grace and charm.

My specialty is lightning rod, balls and anything lightning related. I knew you before I met you and I can say you are as authentic and real as American pie.

Thanks for all your hard work and kindness.


I really don't know what to say but thank you and I feel so humbled by the praise. It has been my passion to serve others with the limited knowledge that God has blessed me with and to help create a community of like minded people who want to be successful with antiques and collectibles. There are two parts of being in this business. The first is the fun you receive by associating with such wonderful people and the second is the money that is available to those who give it their best effort.

The first day at the market was filled with excitement and I have never seen two people work as hard as Eric from the Trader and Sally from the Chicago Market. There isn't a substitute for hard work so you can be sure that these events are going to grow until they are the benchmark for antique and collectible shows across the country.

You still have time to visit us Sunday and we will be waiting for you.
