Have I mentioned that I’m the proud owner

Of the largest African tribal art collection in the United States? I call it Discover African Art We have thousands of masks, statues, bronzes, textiles, furniture pieces – you name it.

DAA is more about selling the decorative and fun pieces rather than the snobby collector pieces, which I also have many of. I am happy to discuss this dynamic if you’re curious. I’m also kinda proud of the fact that I have donated a large number of pieces to Central City Concern. Folks who visit their offices will see great examples (pics below). I feel strongly that it makes a difference in the community, particularly for the African-Americans they serve. Hardly anybody has seen this kind of material before.

But just because it’s African doesn’t mean a non-African can’t appreciate it. I was drawn to it originally back in 2015 when I discovered eBay. I didn’t even think about skin color or culture. I just liked the art—and still do.

Want to check it out in person? We’re located out in Eagle Creek, Oregon – call to schedule an appointment (503) 637-3968. I promise you’ll be amazed.

Well, here’s a good thing

This is a group of folks (who have lots of political differences, I’m guessing) who got together today for a cause: Central City Concern and specifically, Flip The Script. We did a promo about things we can all agree on. We want to make a better Portland and by extension, a better world. That’s all.

I’ll let you know when CCC’s “Compassion In Action” event is ready to go. It’s really about just doing the right thing to make a better community. Deal with addiction, homelessness, mental illness…it matters to all of us even if it ain’t sexy. Just needs to be done and takes $$ to do it. Coming next month.
