Don Baumann grew up in a family of artists and collectors. He was introduced to antiques as a child traveling with
his parents from shop to shop in Bucks County, Pa. His interest in the objects and the dealers and collectors who pursue
them has grown over the years into an active business, one that Don likes to think of as an ongoing treasure hunt.
