Hi, and welcome to foxhollows online antique shop. I have been in this wonderful business since the mid 1980s. After years in an open shop I enjoyed setting up at various shows, my most favorite being Heart of Country. This venue will be a new way for me to continue being a part of something I truly enjoy. I'm drawn to an item by its form, patina and its construction. Knowing the history of a piece makes it even better. I will do my best to accurately describe an item and if you are not 100% happy with your purchase I will accept its return within a three day period for the full price less shipping charge. A reasonable offer on an item will be taken into consideration and I will happily put it in layaway for 3 months. I will accept a personal check but it must clear before your purchase is mailed. I will also accept PayPal. Thank you and enjoy your visit......
