Nancy E Perna Antiques

Nancy Perna | 118 Summit Drive Phoenixville, PA 19460 | 610-506-3857 |



I have been collecting antiques for 40 years. Living in Pennsylvania all my life I was exposed to wonderful things, and my collection has grown over the years. Several years ago I started selling antiques part-time. I participated in about 3 or 4 shows a year and had space in 2 antique shops in Lancaster County, PA. I took a break from selling for several years, and now I've decided to open an on-line shop at Dig Antiques. My interests include things from early childhood, folk art, americana, early smalls, etc. I prefer to be paid by check or money order, but will also take PayPal Friends and Family. PA residents add 6% sales tax. I charge shipping unless otherwise stated. I try to give a detailed description and condition on each item. If you need more pictures or have any questions you can call or e-mail me. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return the item within 3 days for a full refund minus shipping and insurance. Be sure to check all 3 photos on each item listed.
