Christmas In The Shop!

We've got several trees just laden with antique spun cotton fruit, veggies and Santas

This Christmas season the shop at The Black Angus is filled to the brim with lots of antique Christmas items so I thought I would try to give you a peek  - feel free to shop these photos and ask for prices if you  like

We've gone out of our way to "pack it to the brim" with wondrous and special
 antique ornaments, feather trees, putz items, and so very much more

Like these darling and rare old spun cotton miniature turnips

Or this equally rare and wonderful, diminutive 19th C Dresden Shoe Candy container!!

We've also got several antique feather trees in various sizes

Aren't they wonderful?

Don't these preserved boxwood topiaries look so very festive all decorated for the holidays?  The old sign is from a private nature sanctuary in Maine, the scrollwork heart was once a window grate...

This folk art cabin was recently purchased out of a house in the Midwest.........

And what can I say about this fabulous old doll dress that will be offered out of my collection for sale.

So, do stop by the shop if you can or.........
peruse the photos here and on my website...ask questions, maybe you will see something that has to be yours.......and, in the next few days, do stop by

as I will be adding more wonderful finds to the website!

Sweet dreams......

Come to the "Heart of the Valley" Antiques Show!

Come to the 11th Annual "Heart of the Valley" Antiques Show in the "Heart" of Historic Bethlehem, Pennsylvania this March 12th and 13th........You'll be amazed at what you find!

It's that time of year again when I get to wear my "antiques show manager" hat.  All the marketing and publicity that I've been working on since November is set and appearing everywhere.  Next week I'll take possession to the keys to the Ice House and prepare the building, with the help of staff and volunteers, for the dealers' arrival.  It's quite an event and it really is a "community" that inhabits this old building for those three days.

So promptly, on Saturday morning, March 12 at 9:00 AM the doors will open and  our patrons will get their first "eyeful" of all the treasures inside....lots of luscious American Country pieces of all sorts: Quilts and Coverlets, Furniture in Original finish and paint, Folk Art, Children's Foibles...I've posted a few pictures from last year's show to give you an idea.

So if you feel the least bit tempted, I encourage you to join us..........sweet creatures above, aren't they?

Lots of nice primitives..................

wherever you might look!

And don't forget, early textiles........quilts and coverlets.......

And holiday!

So, join us won't you on 
Saturday March 12 (9:00 AM to 5:00PM) or Sunday, March 13 (10:00AM to 4:00PM)
at the Historic Ice House in Historic Bethlehem for the 
11th Annual "Heart of the Valley" Antiques Show........
And don't forget, it's a fundraiser to benefit our local NPR affiliate community public radio station WDIY so there will be a "soundtrack" to shop by......maybe even dancing in the aisles!  It's been known to happen......
For a complete dealer listing and lots of info you can go to
I hope you can joins us!
