To say that Willie De Ridder was born into the antique business would be an accurate statement. A native of The Netherlands, she took her first breath of life in the back of her parents' antique store in Haarlem, The Netherlands. Willie grew up working side by side with her parents and as she learned the business, she also learned that she loved it.

Today, de Ridder Antiques has evolved from a traditional antique store to a massive collection of furniture and decorative pieces.

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15 ("Fagot") is a jet fighter developed for the Soviet Union by Mikoyan-Gurevich OKB. The MiG-15 was one of the first successful swept-wing jet fighters, and it achieved fame in the skies over Korea, where early in the war, it outclassed all straight-winged enemy fighters in most applications. The MiG-15 also served as the starting point for development of the more advanced MiG-17. The MiG-15 is believed to have been one of the most widely produced jet aircraft ever made, with over 12,000 built. Licensed foreign production perhaps raised the total to over 18,000. The MiG-15 is often mentioned along with the North American F-86 Sabre as among the best fighter aircraft of the Korean War and in comparisons with fighters of other eras.
