A trip along Route 80, down I-99 and back brought us to a number of antique malls and shops and enough merchandise to make your head spin. The first stop was Lewisburg, Pa.
Roller Mills, 100 N. Water Street, Lewisburg, Pa—Contains merchandise from some 400 dealers including furniture, glassware and more. There’s a lot of stuff in here and probably only a small portion meets the hundred years of age required to be an antique. Still, most anywhere you find this much stuff, there’s got to be some goodies. As the old saying goes, there’s a treasure in every pile, you just have to know it when you see it. I didn’t have time to look through all the prints, there seemed to be many of reasonable quality. There’s some interesting stoneware and a basement full of goodies including old telephones and a film splicer. Had you the time and energy, I’d bet you can make a living driving to Lewisburg and taking the merchandise back to the Brooklyn Flea. I should also mention two other things, first the café has very good comfort food. Second, this is a mall that doesn’t allow photographs, which means I can’t easily show someone who may want to purchase something that it’s available.
