Last week I posted about our glass-blowing adventure in Corning, New York. Lori, Kathy, Linda and I picked up our pumpkins on Saturday morning before heading south from New York to Virginia. The Corning Museum was hosting an outdoor fall glass market, so we admired the lovelies before hopping back in the car.
After driving several hours in the rain we stopped for lunch in Lewisburg, PA. And after lunch, we decided to walk off a few calories in the Lewisburg Antiques & Collectibles store (570-523-6255). Oh, my goodness, what a wonderful store chock full of vintage furniture, household and farm items, dishes and glassware, pictures and nick-nacks!
I took some pictures for your viewing enjoyment. Isn’t this a darling miniature sewing machine? Price tag $80.
And of course, the old quilts caught our attention. Linda found several stacks of vintage quilt blocks.
Take a look at this “Dresden Plate” table cloth. It is not lined. The seamstress sewed the wrong sides of the blocks together and then covered the seams joining the blocks with orange bias tape. Ingenious!
Here’s a utility quilt of large “Broken Dishes” blocks. It’s tied rather than quilted.
And an embroidered “Crazy Quilt” style block hangs with a red and white coverlet and a crocheted afghan.
An age-softened “Grandmother’s Flower Garden” rounds out the quilts I saw at the Lewisburg Antiques & Collectibles store.
