Vernon, Lebanon, Ohio Shaker Museum, Monticello, antique shows, antique shops and have researched their way of life as well as first hand experience on an aunts farm without electricity. We built our own new home to look old using the old Colonial Williamsburg trim throughout.

Etsy has extended a new way to serve the public. Good services has always been our best policy. Please email me if you have any questions or special requests and I will try my best to help you out. I appreciate you as a customer.
