TREASURES FOUND!

PRE CIVIL WAR COVERLET FROM THE COLONEL'S HOME
As promised, here are some photos of my latest finds discovered while traveling to Florida. Some of the items were purchased at an Estate Sale in Montgomery, Alabama at the home of a retired Colonel. He was an avid collector and had so many items that I'm sure we missed a lot! But we couldn't take too long for each stop or we would never have made it to Florida! Others we found at antique shops along the way. It was fun seeing what people in other parts of the U.S. purchase. Many of the shops were having 25% to 50% off sales so we were able to find items at reasonable prices to pass on to you. We have many,  many more treasures though so if you don't find anything here that grabs your fancy, well, you'll just have to come and see what else we have!

  23. FUN FUN FUN!!! Even my husband enjoys all the delightful vignettes that are arranged in the many rooms throughout the historical mansion. A treasure trove of many antique/vintage items that stir one's memory of times gone past ~ yet these same things are refreshed and brought to life again by the three lovely ladies(Sandy, Renee & Karen) and their family helpers! A friendly and exciting atmosphere adds to the "hunt" for the perfect treasure. THANK YOU for such a fun experience!!!
