Antique auctions

Neither sleet nor rain could prohibit today's journey for today is the day we went to Carversville.

Excuse my finger in this picture, I was so excited.

 To an old Mill town founded in the 1780's, to this little house nestled by a stream which houses Noel Barrett Auctions.

 Surrounded by charming old houses,
 To meet Noel Barrett of Noel Barrett Auctions. I was picking up a new dollhouse for my collection.
You may have seen him on Antiques Roadshow, discussing Tynietoy.

 Not this Gottschalk or this charming little Silbert & Flemming, waiting for someone else,

             Nor this interesting modern house,
I think it's  Rich, it has celluloid spray painted windows and plants like my Rich Tudor House. 
                      Nor this mechanical one!
                     So much to look at!
So we loaded it up and drove 2 hours home. 

                 Look at this abandoned house.

                           Back through Quakertown,

                       Past harvested fields.

 So different from California, where it is so much more densely populated. And my house? I really needed it for my collection! Next post. Cheers and Happy New Year! CM

I have been there to pick up dollhouses too. Isn't Carversville a charming place. I can't wait to see your new house.

Oh, you Tease!!! I am looking forward to seeing the new house! It was wonderful to see a little bit of the journey and "meet" Mr. Barrett! The countryside is lovely too (I am partial, being a New Englander... but my Grandparents were in Pennsylvania.)All those antique houses already spoken for... *sigh*... I don't need any more houses!
