Hurricane Irene is gone!

We made it through the night here in NJ and Hurricane Irene is on its way north! Our home faired ok, and its time to take the furniture down off the blocks and remove the sandbags from outside. Alot of cleanup in the yard with downed tree limbs etc.
Our postcard stock made it through safely also!
Thanks and hope to see you at the upcoming Tuckerton Antique Show and Garden State show in Parsippany NJ!

Some creepy collectibles!

I've recently aquired a large lot of old newspaper press releases from the 1915-1940 time period. After getting them home, I started noticing a trend...they all show some type of disasters, murder or criminals!
Included were a gruesome murder of a little girl by a serial killer back in the 1930s, an escaped convict from the famous Eastern penitentiary in Philadelphia and a tragic ship disaster in Chicago.
The Chicago story even has a bizarre link to todays Oprah Winfrey! Many have ties to hauntings of these places today!
Check out my current ebay auctions for some bizarre collectibles!
