If you have trouble reading it because of the reflection is says:
Open Most Days about 9 or 10
Occasionally as early as 7, but some days as late as
12 or 1
We close about 5:30 or 6
Occasionally about 4 or 5 but
sometimes as late as 11 or 12
Some days in afternoons we aren't here at all and lately
we have been here about all the time
Except when I am someplace else
But I should be here, ??? Bob
Judy, is daughter showed us around the museum and described some things I had no Idea what it might have been. I think the oldest thing I saw was a washing machine. She lifted the middle part up as it worked. Very unusual and long before the wringer washer.
Quite a contraption, isn't it? We also saw a rope woven blanket that was put on horses to keep the flies away
Check this out, Judy is holding it.
This little pattern is the smallest I have ever seen. It measures abut 4 x 6 inches maybe and features a darling dress for little girls.
Here are some more shelf photos, these shelves used to hold boots her father sold. She remembered making trips to Atlanta to order inventorey and they also brought it home with them that same day. Also, salesmen called on her father at his store to sell their wares.
Here is "Cutworm" on a wagon ride.
And here is Judy after she worked hard to re-open the museum
I hope you enjoyed our day as we did. I also went to the Old Jail Museum, but it had closed for the season and will re-open in March but I found a very interesting Indian tee pee and some heritage information I will share with you on another day. I have to get busy for the week-end at Decker's Flea Market on Hwy 129 in Murphy, NC for our new merchandise to add I got from our storage unit.
