This has to be one of the best parts of this job. Road trips to the northeast. We always find beautiful pieces in New York, Philadelphia and many places along the way. We load up the trailer empty, go to the farthest point and start loading up on the way back! It’s so fun!!
We usually order something in the destination city. We get lots of nice doors and mantels from the Northeast. Sometimes we will find a really cool piece like this closet front from Philadelphia. It’s from the 1870′s. There is one mirror, but look at the key and keyhole! Wow, that’s a really cool find! It’s very hard to find original hardware with pieces this old.
We do have regular stops on the way home. Our favorites are new flea markets or antique malls that we’ve never been to before. We find these by taking a few new exits, noticing billboards or just seeing a tag sale sign on poster board! This last trip was no exception. We have plenty more to share! Keep checking in….
