For some reason I've never understood,* most owners of old houses have a reputation for being, to put it gently, difficult to buy gifts for. As one of those so-called "old house nuts" who has been tagged as "impossible to shop for," I feel compelled to set the record straight and help the friends and families of others who are crazy about (a) their house, especially but not necessarily if it is a historic home and/or (b) antiques and/or (c) garbage picking and/or (d) obsessive attention to detail find out how easy (and affordably) we really are to please. (Links for c and d are provided in case you need a context for this classification.)
