I needed to get out so I took a drive to Lancaster County, ask Pennsylvania to a town called Lititz. I remember my dear mother always talking about this quaint little town. She sold her quilts and dolls to a shop keeper there, ed and now that I think about it, treatment I remember going there with her. By the way, she is doing good. She is healthy and happy. Yesterday she turned 94.
There was a little antique show in Lititz yesterday. It was it’s 50th anniversary, very unusual for an antique show. I bought a fabulous very 19th century spice chest, could be late 18th century. It came out of a old Chester County farmhouse, and has been in the same family for several generations. Originally it had feet, but over the years someone has taken them off. The drawers are dovetailed and it is hand plained. There was a lock on the bottom drawer, but it is now missing.
I also purchased a child’s high chair from the early 1700′s, too came from the same family. Originally the seat was probably rush, but was replaced most likely in the late 1700′s with a piece of leather. I love it!
I have an a wonderful early bucket with pale yellow paint, might have been white originally, but oxidized to yellow. An old tread spool, early bees wax, tin horn, old leather books, one is a dictionary, hand made ladies stockings with initials and more. Hoping to photograph everything soon, and will have them on my website. If you have an interest in anything in the photo, don’t hesitate to email me and I’ll try to answer any questions you might have.
Take good care.
