Daytrip to Beaver Creek Mall and An Auction

A friend and I drove to Carlisle, Pennsylvania to check out an auction and on the way stopped at Beaver Creek Antique Mall in Hagerstown, Maryland. This mall has long been a place to pick up antiques at close to wholesale prices. I have found many things here in past years. The staff at Beaver Creek are knowledgeable and have an "eye." The Christmas and Holiday booth, back in the corner, is always fun and has so much!

Bottle Brush Trees

More Bottle Brush Trees

Jimmy Creamer's Booth-Fabulous!
Note the applique pillow case.

The Auction

Early Hoover electric cigar lighter-perfect condition in original box.
But, this little lighter is the only electric object in a folk art auction.

I love this red and white barber pole!

A very nice Pennsylvania cupboard

Always fun to see one of these spinning wheel chairs-A Colonial Revival icon

Sewer Owl in perfect condition

A box of miniature sheep

A pin cushion with stuffed dog and a toy puppy.

An geometric hooked rug worked with wide strips of wool-reminds me of a Frank Stella painting.

Piles of quilts, most made in Pennsylvania.

This auction featured the estate of  a recently deceased antiques dealer around York, Pennsylvania. I put in an absentee bid on a nice Tinsel painting-Still waiting to find out if I got it.

The auction was listed on http://www.auctionzip/, my favorite place to find great local auctions!
