Half-Tester bed with provenance, stunning library filled with antique and newer, mixed genre books, Steuben cranberry glass, Baccarat stemware, Waterford, Baltimore Rose china by Haviland and much more.
If you are not into fancy and prefer a bit more rustic, we have a massive collection of pre-historic Native American Indian arrowheads, tools and bone collections, antique farm hand-tools, kitchen gadgets, locks with keys, industrial cabinets, typewriters and a wonderful collection of antique cash registers & slot machines.
We are limiting the number of ‘shoppers’, inside the home, with additional limits in certain rooms.
