One Florida Man Makes Antiquing on the Road His Everyday Life


BRIMFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Harry Morris loves antiques, so much so that he has dedicated the last 30 years or so to a life on the road.

Morris didn’t bring the U-Haul to deliver his antiques here.

Everything came right in this van, which just so happens to be his home too.

“When I pack this, if filled from here to the ceiling, you can’t see anything because this is all boxes here. It’s tough to use this on the road, but this you can use, the toilet you can use. I leave that open…the other side of the curtain is the messy area I live in,” says Morris.

Morris travels up and down the East Coast living at truck stops or flea markets. Everything he sells he has picked out himself.

“I buy only what I like because I look at it the most and if it doesn’t sell, it doesn’t matter because I’m enjoying it. You know I haven’t sold a single thing on this table, but I love everything I bought, so it doesn’t matter,” Morris adds.

He also makes his own products too from eight track tapes. Some items are practical and others more creative

“I decided to make a 3 dimensional animal, so I made a dog, so I stretch all the eight track…it took a few days and then I started making the dog. [How much will you sell that for?] I’m putting $195 on that. It is a lot of time, effort, the idea.”

If you get the chance to talk to him here, one thing is for sure: Morris is passionate about what he does.

“I love it when I have a bad day because I’m doing what I want. The most important thing in life is to be happy with what your doing. What good is being miserable your whole life?” Morris explains.
