Antique Emporium in Beaver Falls, PA

Upon entering the Antique Emporium, a lovely woman  invited me to have cool water, offered me a glass of wine, the use of the facilities AND there was a basket of free tomatoes.

 Obviously I was a a first-timer.  “You are welcome to take photographs. ” she said.      That was all I needed.

There are three floors and over 75 Dealers’ Booths of everything you can think of- and then some more things you didn’t  know existed in the world.

The “like items” are categorized and displayed together, so if you are into political buttons, license plates, or milk bottle collections you don’t have to dig through other stuff.  It is so organized and tidy.

Meet Jim.  If you are in need of a pun, the proprietor will help you out.

Here he is holding a business card that says “You’re worth a million to us.”

Be sure to have a nice chat with Jim.  As I said, he’s pretty puny. 

What About a Billy Burger?

This sign makes me want one!                                                            (From the archives. )

Driving to Spokane airport in the early morning(July 2006) from Okanogan, WA after visiting our brother David.  This is in Wilbur, WA.    Unfortunately Billy Burgers was closed when we drove by. I stopped and took just one shot of their sign.

I know I said I’d be back to “real time” blogposts starting today but the back-to-school has taken more energy and effort than I realized.  Soon.  Have to find a rhythm and stride.  Keep or Pitch on unintentional hiatus as well, just couldn’t think about throwing anything out right now.

I read here that Billy Burgers has an extensive collection of salt and pepper shakers. Somee cool photos to shoot.  And there are several crop circles in the area!  I called Billy Burgers up on the phone just now and the phone rang a bit and I was worried they weren’t there-then a nice young man answered   so   I  can report they are definitely open for business.  Also, the lights that are out on the other poster’s photo have been replaced and are working great.  Thanks for the good information.  Here’s the address if you go.  The Urbanspoon review is all positive, too. There’s a map of all Washington State Burger Joints! WOW.
