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.
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
