Granddaughter Grace helped me arrange china in it while the guys moved the second secretary we’d acquired out of the back of the store and into the truck—no simple job because it was really h-e-a-v-y. Everyone browsed a bit before we left. One son found a cornbread pan, my daughter-in-law found a little basket she liked and I bought a gorgeous hand-crocheted tablecloth before we left for our next destination, the Marietta antiques booth.
Before we leave Ravenswood, though, here's a peek at another new piece at that booth. It's a solid oak secretary, old and ornate and lovely.
That took some time as I shifted items to new locations or packed them in a tote to be taken home. And of course, everyone took a little time to browse. My daughter-in-law was thrilled to find two tall chairs to match the ones in her kitchen—one of her had been broken and she had not been able to match them anywhere. But here were the matching stools, and at a good price.
