My Sister's Antique Consignment Spaces

This is my youngest sister, Melanee Herrera, of Williamsport, PA. I stayed with her for one week on my recent vacation. It was mandatory to drive 30 miles south to Lewisburg, where she has three consignment spaces in two locations.

In addition to selling antiques, she's an artist. She made the teddy bear on the small red chair, as well as the needle punched, oval framed cat picture hanging on the hutch next to her. You can see it better in the photo below. She loves to create art pieces which look old and worn. She also makes dolls, mixed media art pieces and assemblages. Check out her blog when you get a chance.

She loves nothing better than going to flea markets, garage sales and any place people are getting rid of their old treasures. She loves anything vintage, which is also charming, unique, interesting and old.

She loves antique furniture, dishes, clocks, typewriters, phones, picture frames, kitchen stuff, pottery, dolls, books, clothes, dishes, toys, figurines and anything that might be collectible. She's well known for getting people to find something they love so much they want to start a collection. Melanee gave me an old Bakelite radio years ago and I've always wanted to start a collection and will one day when space allows.

If you're in the Lewisburg area, please stop in to the The Silver Moon Consignment Barn. It's at the site of the former drive in theater. Here's a link to her blog showcasing early PA folk primitives, quilts, furniture and more.


  1. We have those wonderful consignment spaces around here. I can spend a day looking at stuff. What fun for your sister. I hope she sells lots of things. :)Bea

  2. Wow. Sure wish your sister's place was closer to us in San Diego. She looks like she has great hings. How much fun to scavenger for things to sell.

  3. I'm a junker myself..have collected since I was 16 years young. I used to go to thrift stores and flea markets and stuff it under my bed until my next yard sale. Now I have the store, a dream come true that I thought was NEVER going to happen!
