Last month visitors to our online emporium Knickerbocker Antiques & Vintage would have noticed we closed shop for relocation. In fact we traded the hectic pace of New York City for the bucolic pleasures of country life in beautiful Bucks County, PA, where the winding lanes along the Delaware River are dotted with ancient stone farmhouses and massive old barns.
Here some familiar pieces from the city fill a corner in our new home, a unique structure originally built as the carriage house on a farm established in the 1740’s. Ever enamored with all things old we were especially charmed by the exposed hand hewn beams and uneven hardwood floors.
A closer look at the framework shows the craftsman’s tool marks still evident under the whitewash, as is the end of the wooden peg used to join the post and beam.
