As much as a criticize some of the One King’s Lane Tag Sales, I have purchased a number of things from them, and have always been very pleased with my purchases. A few weeks ago, during David Duncan’s Tag Sale on OKL, I spotted a book I’ve been searching for – the autobiography of Billy Baldwin! I have a signed copy of BB Remembers and BB Decorates, but this is one that I’d been missing from my collection. I also have Adam Lewis’s beautiful book on Billy Baldwin that was published last year.I had some credits at OKL, so I took the plunge and bought Billy Baldwin – An Autobiography. Instead of working on the house, I’ve been reading it every second I have a chance. The most fun thing about this book is that it talks at length about his early life in Baltimore, and many of the names and places and even some of the events are familiar to me. The house that I just bought is about three or four blocks from the house where Billy Baldwin spent his early years. I will have to walk Connor over there as a pilgrimage.
I can’t wait to finish the book, as it’s been excellent thus far.
