Happy Independence Day to All! Windsor Place Antiques will be closed on July 3rd & July 4th for some r & r. I'm hitting the road after the Brooklyn Flea today on a meandering drive to see friends in Chicago. I've got ambitious plans to visit several auctions and fleas in Ohio and Indiana.
I've been plotting my route with this lovely map from my shop. For years I have been hearing about markets in Rogers, Ohio and auctions in Shipshewana, Indiana. The stuff of legend….I'll report back.
I can't think about Indiana without thinking of John Mellencamp. I grew up during the '80s, played guitar and loved the song "Little Pink Houses"…still do.
This is just a little aside, but, I posted some photos this week of a great collection of vintage instrument strings that I have. They're probably more appropriate for decor than for stringing your banjo, uke, mandoline or guitar.
Contact me if you're interested in these- I have LOTS more. Below are some of my personal collection of vintage instruments.
