Phil Stringer started his collection in 1982. At that time things were different. Pottery shows were dominant in the market and that is how he acquired much of his collection. Throughout the ensuing decades, Phil continued to grow his collection while travelling throughout the country. All this of course prior eBay and the internet. That Era has now come and passed, times have changed with the dawn of the internet. Phil felt it was the time for him change too. Phil stopped collecting in the mid-2000's and is now focusing on sharing his passion for vintage pottery with the world.
