Yesterday I Was Out with a Friend

Yesterday I drove to my girlfriend’s house for lunch. We had some yummy egg salad sandwiches and a glass of iced tea, thumb  then we were ready  for some real fun, cialis antiquing!!  We jumped in the car and drove out to Chester County to check out a couple of our favorite shops. Carole O’Neill is the artist in my artisan store, and she wanted to find some old frames for her paintings. We pulled into the parking lot of The Rusty Gate, and I don’t think we were in the store for more then a few minutes when Carole called me over. “Carole, she said, “look at this”. It was a beautiful large handmade, and handpainted bridesbox, AND it was signed J Trone!  Jackie is a well known artist from Pennsylvania. She has been in Early American Life many times over the years, PLUS,  as you probably already know, she too is one of the talented artisans in my American Artisan Store. Although there is not a date on this box, I feel sure that it is one of her earlier pieces, I don’t think she makes them anymore. So, if you love bandboxes, especially handmade and handpainted ones, don’t miss this one, it’s a collector’s item. It will be for sale soon in my country store, the end of next week. You can also email me if you are interested. Tomorrow I will be driving to Lyme, New Hampshire. I am not looking forward to the drive, BUT I am looking forward to the trip! I’ll be gone a few days. Of course I’ll have my camera, and computer with me, so if I have the time,  I’ll try to keep you posted. If not, I’ll tell you all about it next week. Until then, as always-

HAPPY DAY EVERYONE!

Carole
