Weekend Finds

This weekend I went to a local antique store/flea market, on the hunt for some good finds and something with a story.  I never know what I’m going to find!!  As they say, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure…..and that couldn’t be more true.   Here are a few photos of what I found…

What does this have to do with Presidents Day you ask?!

I’m a history junkie and love to watch shows and read about the White House furnishings and collection of antiques.

I have a few favorites of my own:

Grant’s Treaty Table

Did you know it has eight drawers so the eight cabinet members could lock away important documents?  The treaty that ended the Spanish American war was signed on this desk!
