I have been in the antiques business since 1982, am originally from Connecticut and now living in Michigan. My first love is Americana and country smalls and sell at Midwest shows and sometimes on ebay under ID ctyankee6. I travel to New England twice a year for choice antiques. I want you to be pleased with your purchase so additional photos of items upon request (prices below do not include shipping) I ship Priority Mail insured (USA sales only). I do offer returns within 3 days of receipt. Please email me first. I do not refund shipping costs. Michigan residents add 6% sales tax, or provide MI tax number. I accept checks (must hold until clear), money orders or Paypal (preferred). All offers considered. Thank you for visiting!!
