Our 117 Year Old Find

While visiting antique shops on a day trip today, we discovered a beautiful hardbound collection of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poems.  This volume was published in 1894 by Houghton, Mifflin, and Company  Best of all, it was only $10 and in great shape!

Another recent find was a $20 old-fashioned school desk.  We don't know the exact year that it was made.  After a little research, we have narrowed the time frame down to the late 1800s.
