Edgefield Manor, at one time a poor farm, then a nursing home and now a hotel/eatery. This image hangs on the wall from about 1955, when little old ladies knitted, visited and passed their numbered days.

vintage for sale…

“I’ve always had a keen sense of history. My father was an antiques dealer and he used to bring home boxes full of treasures, and each item always had a tale attached.” Sara Sheridan

“Sometimes the people who’ve owned the books in this shop leave little clues between the pages, and not just love notes or pressed flowers. You might come upon an unused Amtrak ticket tucked between the pages of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes or a sprinkling of crumbs along the gutter inside The Complete Engravings, Etchings, and Drypoints of Albrecht Dürer. Makes you wonder what kind of person noshes on a salami sandwich over The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” Camille DeAngelis
