Lana Smith Antiques
I have been selling antiques for the past 30 years. I have lived in various parts of the country,Maryland,Chicago, Ohio, Virginia and Philadelphia,where my interest and love grew for Americana. I offer 18th and 19th objects with good design textiles, folk art , decorative arts, sewing items and some jewelry. I often look for pieces that are unique and different. I accept credit cards, money orders and checks in good standing. I have a 100% full return policy if returned in same condition as received within 72hours. Customer is responsible for shipping and insurance. I still can be found exhibiting at about 6 major shows a year. I am happy to hear requests for items I may have in my inventory. Just e-mail!
