We have acquired two large Military collections and will be bringing many great mementos from all Wars including: Canadian Wool Uniforms with insignias, WWII Canadian Machete with leather sheaf, Korean War fighter helmet signed by retiring pilots squadron! Plus many documents and RCAF aviation instruments and parts.
The Brooklin Antiquarian, aka David Stewart has a 40 year history dealing in Canadiana. He’ll readily admit that great harvest tables are now a scarce commodity.
But, he found a beauty for Elora next weekend. Cherry, peg top, two drawers and 6 feet long, this piece will be at the show.
Paula Malmstrom from St. Catharines sent a photo of an exceptional walking stick she has for the show. 1880’s hand carved folk art with names and dates from Woodstock, ON. The photo shows some of the detail.
