What a turbulent time in history. Who can forget the great oil embargo, the Watergate scandal, the end of the Vietnam War, and disco! But the furniture! Bold fabric patterns, the colors brown, purple, orange, and yellow, shag-pile carpets, lacquered furniture, and lava lamps! The use of teak wood and paneling regained popularity. OUCH! So here is our cool couch and a Henredon walnut coffee table of the 1970"s.

On Saturday, we had the distinct pleasure of conducting this tag sale brought to you by Diana Getz of The Hitching Post Antiques and yours truly Mary Homza of Home Again. This was a well appointed home. Very traditional. An English feel. Every wall in each room had an equestrian feel. All furniture in every single room was cherry Pennsylvania House. My love! Beautiful sets of china, silver, and crystal. It was just impossible to show everything. I am telling you the buyers were taking the nails out of the walls! Despite the horrible weather, the lines were long. It was over the top! Can't wait for the next sale.

A year ago Dan McGrogan opened the first raw food, smoothie and juice cafe in the area at 63 Main Street, Luzerne. Within three months he had to expand his operation not to mention the menu. Today you could not get near the place! It was standing room only. This area has a long history of bad health habits and disease. But seeing his business growing so fast, it is apparent that a lot of people get it. It was wonderful talking to complete strangers and sharing their stories of a raw food and vegan lifestyle. So Dan, three cheers to you and your great staff. Many more years.

The Federal Period. Our new-born nation selects the eagle for its emblem which spreads its wings over furniture, together with classical motifs from abroad that echoed the splendors of Greece and Rome. Woods most used were: mahogany, cherry, maple, and fruit woods in less splendid furniture. Curly maple often replaced satinwood used in European models. After 1800 rosewood was used for more costly pieces. Our very pleasing chest is from the 1840's and made of mahogany.
