Finding Treasures

This area of Pennsylvania is a mecca for antique and flea market lovers. Adamstown is home to Renninger’s, Black Angus, Shupps Grove and many other shops, both large and small.

A personal favorite of mine is Fiesta Ware and other kitchen objects.

At one time I collected Depression glass.

I also collect Pennsylvania redware pottery such as this by the late Lester Breininger.

Then there are model trains….

An assortment of jewelry….

Crocks and jugs….

Colorful bakeware…..

Wooden tools and implements….

Wagons and wheelbarrows…

Assorted metal objects….

And I always love looking at quilts. There is always some kind of treasure to find when you spend some time at the local antique and flea markets. The bigger problem is–now where will I put this wonderful new acquisition???

  1. Mary— loved, loved this post. We do have a few monthly flea markets in CA, but I think since we don’t have as much history here, there just aren’t such a supply of beautiful things. Thanks for the vicarious shopping excursion.
