About Bob Richter

Bob Richter's passion for collecting holiday decor began as a boy. One day his father, who would take him to auctions, handed Bob a box of beautiful ornaments, including a blue jay, a Santa Claus, some bells, and other special figures, and said, "It's time you started collecting something and I know you like Christmas." So collect he did-and still does. That original box has grown into a collection that hovers at around 2,500 and counting. Regularly featured in media outlets including The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The Huffington Post, The Associated Press, Redbook, the Boston Globe, FOX, CBS, ABC, and HGTV, Bob delights in sharing antiques, design, and bargaining advice. As "The Designer" and breakout star of the PBS series Market Warriors, Bob used his personality and expertise to strike deals at flea markets all over the country and he remains a fan favorite. He also hosts Flea Market Minute (now in its third season) and Minute Makeover (sponsored by IKEA). As a correspondent for The Huffington Post, he writes for the Home, Style, Travel, and Arts sections, and is also a Tastemaker for "Vintage and Market Finds" on the high-end shopping portal One Kings Lane where he curates special sales with art, antiques, and rescued objects. Specializing in a marriage of comfort and smart design, Bob offers up a fresh take on living with "stuff." His tongue-in-cheek mantra, "More is More," speaks to his love of art and antiques, which he culls from around the globe. As a contributor to PBS.org, Bob has profiled Pop Artist Peter Max, written about art pottery, WWII collecting, vintage Christmas decor, vintage clothing, and more. He has also served as Guest Editor of NYC-Arts and offers antiques advice in eHow and The Intelligent Collector. He lives in New York City.
