Kerosene Lighting is one of our Specialties!

We have lamps and lanterns that date from the late nineteenth centry through the 1970's.  Wicks, burners, chimneys and other supplies are carried in our inventory as well.


Railroad Items, Cast Iron Cookware, Kitchen Collectibles, Old Books, and many other interesting things can be found in our shop.
