There is one dealer who has lamp shades and globes both new and antique. There is a whole cabinet of the most wonderful glass shades for both hurricane and Gone with the Wind lamps. There was everything from milk glass, to ruby and cobalt. Some plain and some handpainted, all beautiful! This dealer is in one of the barns.
Between the barn and the house there is an outdoor dealer who has marvelous wrought iron garden furniture, tables, (I loved one with a stone top), flower pots (ceramic and cement), plant shelves and much, much more. There were 2 very unusual ceramic roosters about 2 foot tall that caught my eye.
In the house there is a linen dealer who offers not only colorful quilts but bright white lace doilies, pillow cases and table linen. There is a very large selection here.
The upstairs now has several dealers in kitchen items especially form the 30's and 40s.
Another favorite dealer of mine has a wonderful collection of depression glass. There were items in amber, pink, cobalt blue, green and ruby. Plates, cups, bowls, cake plates, serving pieces, in many different patterns. Quite a nice selection, set up in what was the kitchen of the house.
There is something for everyone here and the staff is both helpful and knowledgeable.
