Welcome to Our House

If you have been reading our Collectibles Page, you might be wondering where we keep all of that junk. Recently, we did a house tour for a local charitable organziation, and have just now gotten around to putting these pictures up on the site.

I am certain that there are interior decorators out there who wil faint when they see our bizarre collage of artifacts from the Swing Era. If you are part of the "Less is More" crowd, you probably aren't going to enjoy this either, because the house is maddeningly cluttered. For this page, I have used the Editorial "we", but be certain - no other sane person would want to live here...

On the other hand, it's a nice place to relax -- because we're surrounded by things that have very special memories. You may wonder if we are "Pack Rats" but everything we have has been thoroughly researched and documented; we have restored all the appliances to 100% functionality and use them regularly. The reason that we have so much stuff is that there were a whole lot of noteworthy and beautiful objects made during the Swing Era!

Let's begin with the House, itself. Click Here if you want to skip the exterior and go right to the rooms.
