BIG ANNOUNCEMENT:  BONNIE'S BUNGALOW - opening in the Spring!!!

USE NEW PHONE NUMBER, land line disconnected..

NOTE:  Newest photos appear at the bottom.

We are resting, after the huge task of closing the business.  We also cleaned out the building, all three floors, so it is ready for the new owner.  Contact Jerry Elmer at Century 21 Realty in Brodhead.

We've been sorting things, and making some discoveries we forgot we had.  We will eventually re-open our business, at our farm.  In the meantime, we are busy sorting out things, getting ready for the new shop.  Finding lots of goodies for you....

I have started indexing my library of Little Golden Books, and other children's books.  Of course, the best part of my collection is BONNIE BOOKS, published in the early days of Little Golden Books by a few other publishers. Created by so many talented artists, with colorful illustrations.  This will be an on-going project, for sure.  Plus, working upstairs in the spare bedroom is unheated.  But...I'm having a good time!

In the meantime, I'll just add some fun photos to help pass the time. 

Be sure to look at Facebook, too.

We've listed a few items for sale on Facebook (Center Avenue Antiques, and Brodhead Area Buy/Sell/Trade. Check it out periodically so you don't miss something UNIQUE!

 

 

NOTE:  Our auction was held on Saturday, August 25th, and our business closed Friday, August 31, 2018.

 

Thanks to all the customers over 31 years.
