Antiquing in Pennsylvania with Yvette

Posted by

Today, Yvette will be guest blogging about her Antiquing trip in Pennsylvania. Take it away Yvette!

Recently, I was out on the road and had the pleasure of shopping in Eastern Pennsylvania. We headed to Allentown, Quakertown and Zionsville to scout out some of our favorite places. See some of my finds, below.

  • Hi Kevin,
    Beautiful and great finds. Have a great and successful week.

  • Hello Yvette! I'm a frequent visitor at Weil Antiques and as of today, that beautiful scrolled brass chair w/leather seat is still there! I overheard the staff saying they couldn't find the chair so I pointed it out to them.

    Best,

    Mark
