It’s been a while since we have posted anything on Collectorgene. Please forgive this lapse. Jim and I were on a four-week road trip that took us 6700 miles through nine different states. Except for New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Idaho, we antiqued in all of them. In fact, we combed through shops in Ohio and Illinois both coming and going. To be fair, most of our trip was spent taking in the sights of five different national parks, learning about history at several national monuments, visiting numerous museums, and even visiting relatives. Still and all, out of 32 days on the road, we probably stopped in at least one antique shop or mall 20 days or more. Many people marvel that we enjoy road tripping as much as we do. We believe that being antique hunters adds an extra dimension to the trip that makes it even more fun. And while we do come home with t-shirts and postcards and refrigerator magnets documenting where we’ve been, most of our souvenirs are of the vintage kind. This trip was no exception. The back of the minivan was loaded with bags.
Now that we’re back home and somewhat settled in, we hope to post several blogs that show at least a portion of the “stuff” that we found out west.
