Paige has been living in this former warehouse/factory for 17 years. Along the way, she has amassed a vast and impressive collection representing, mostly the pre-industrial, agrarian phase of our nation's economy. It is so extensive that she would prefer to hand it over to the City Reliquary than dispose of it or bring it with her when she moves..

Everything in this vast space has happened organically and over time. When Paige moved in, the loft space was completely raw. Every element that connotes 'residential' today had to be acquired and/or built. The sleeping loft, for example is made of actual birch trees, rescued whole, by Paige's father and brought to Brooklyn. Whenever friends find an unusual artifact, wherever they might be in the world, they immediately think of Paige and bring it to her as soon as possible. Thus, her collection grows.
