No 13: Good Knight

Milan, Ohio - the home town of Tomas Alva Edison - has a great selection of antique shops. One of these shops is called Milan Inn-tiques, as the antique shop was part of an Inn. I got to know the store owner Tom after discovering we had the same taste in rust...

 

No 25: Abe Lincoln

There is definitely something special about vintage phonograph horns. Many of them come in eye catching shapes and with colorful ornaments.

The owner of both the horns and the rest of the antiques in that room was Kalle Trygg, a humble gentleman from the southern parts of Sweden that I got to know earlier that year at the Stockholm Antiques Fair...
