We met Jay at The Philadelphia Home Show 2013 and I must say he is one of the most energetic, inspirational and positive people you'll ever meet. His booth space was not too far from us at WMMR and CollisionMax's Minerva space. This dude is destined for great things. We could have stood there the whole day and listened to him tell stories. His demeanor is inviting and magnetic. Cheers, Jay!
We have the luck to meet Jay, Such inspire guy at what he's doing! so energetic! We can stay for hours there listen and talking to him .. he rocks!!!! if you don't watch his show yet, you better!
What a fascinating show! I'm not a reality show fan, but I just watched several episodes back-to-back. I share Jay's passion for rescuing old objects, and the more "history" the better. Wondering about the children who carved graffiti into 19th century school desks, or imagining a church bell calling the townspeople to worship in a tiny church gives the objects a value that exceeds their monetary worth. Watching has made me wonder how someone acquires the skills to restore objects made of such diverse materials. It's not the sort of thing taught at the community college, but it would be fascinating to learn. I want that job!
Jay Chaikin over at Reclaimed Relics is one of the nicest guys and a great speaker!!! Jay walked us around two of his yard locations and spoke with us on how his business grew and the hardwork that America seems to lack these days. Its amazing anymore these days where you can meet a random guy by searching the web for old barn beams and walk away knowing so much about he and his families lives. Reclaimed Relics is a god send to those who have historical houses that want to keep them in the manner of which they were once. Reclaimed Relics is what America is all about, hard work and dedication to provide for your family. As Jay says "if your out of work, create it"!!!!
