Having some trouble getting my photos to show today. Stay tuned. I’ll fix it soon. Friday evening, prostate at the last minute, nurse I decided to get up early on Saturday, medical and go to Adamstown, Pennsylvania. It was their extravaganza weekend. Shupp’s Grove was open as well, and I have not gone there for years. It’s a flea market. I used to go years ago. It was wonderful then, lots of antiques. I got up bright and early, poured my coffee in a travel mug, and off I went. On the way I stopped at this antique shop. Each time I’m in Narvon, PA. I stop to see if they are open. They never are, and today was no different. I looked through the windows and took these pictures.
There were still a lot of antiques in the store, but there was something about it that just seemed sad to me. Then I saw the sale sign. Was it for sale with the contents? It didn’t matter, I was just too anxious to get to the flea market. Yuk, it wasn’t worth the trip. Too much junk! There was not one thing that tempted me, so I left and drove to the Black Angus, I knew there would be lots there. I decided to stop at the outsides vendors first. It was good. I found a few nice things for the store. Tombstone breadboards, a wonderful 19th century bridle embellishment, a picture, early initialed hand towel, a small Amish doll, and a few other things too. The best was yet to come.
This large 19th century Amish horse was too wonderful to resist! I have such a weakness for things like that, and Amish animals this large are a rarity. This one is the best! The Queen Anne wooden doll is wonderful too. Both will be for sale in the store very soon. They are both fabulous. It was a wonderful day, and I had lots of great things to bring home for the store. I felt really good. Stopped for gas, filled my coffee mug, and headed back home. Life is good!
