Some of the best days are spent antiquing. Leisurely browsing about until you spot a gem or two. Then there is a day spent at an antique auction where the bidding process is action packed.
In the heart of Chester County, resides a beautiful old stone building that dates back to the 1700s. I love this type of architecture surrounded by country side. The building is home to the offices of the antique auction house Pook & Pook, Inc. Such a fitting space for exquisite antiques!
