I live in the small, historic town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Carlisle is home to the US Army War College, Army Heritage Museum, Central PA Youth Ballet and Dickinson College. In the summer months, Carlisle boasts the largest collector car show series in the eastern USA.

Carlisle is proud to be the home and final resting place of Medal of Honor and Purple Heart recipient Sergeant First Class Randall Shughart. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, posthumously, for his valor as part of a two man team that successfully rescued Black Hawk pilot Michael Durant. Actor Johnny Good plays Randall Shughart in Durant's movie Black Hawk Down.

Neighboring towns include; Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Hershey and Lancaster. My shop is located 50 miles north of the Mason Dixon line; the dividing line that separated the north and the south during the civil war. Many Carlisle homes served as part of the underground railroad and gave respite to slaves seeking freedom in the north.
This part of the country is also home to a few conservative religious groups; such as the Amish and Mennonites. Within these groups, gender lines are very defined. The men are skilled carpenters and the women are talented seamstresses. You will see many items in my shop, especially the quilts, are made by these very talented craftsmen/women.

I spend much of my time visiting local and regional shops, flea markets and auctions. I also travel extensively throughout rural, northeastern part of the country searching for unique, vintage pieces.
Most of my items were purchased in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virgina, New York and Connecticut. Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you find something that touches you. Enjoy your stay!
