It started raining but I finally found the York Antique Center I'd been told about.
Pretty much everything was locked inside glass cases and anything you wanted to see had to have it unlocked. Most of what I saw was really old, like medieval and Asian, and lots of jewelry. Right away I found a mourning brooch with braided hair inside it for a really good price, according to what I've seen in San Diego. It would have been about $72, which was amazing when I've only seen them for $150-200. Hmmm, maybe resell it? But then I saw a mourning bracelet and it was love at first site. The medallion was Vulcanite, and the band the dealer said was Bakelite. It's flexible and opens to go over your hand. It was L53 ($85), still a deal and I wanted this for myself. I passed on the hair brooch but was sorry I had no way of asking my friends online if they were interested. I walked away happy.
We headed back to our B&B finally to see if our room was ready and it was. We were shocked that the innkeeper had dragged all our heavy suitcases up the 3 flights of narrow stairs to the room but he said as long as he takes his time, he won't throw his back out.
He started the tour in front of a church and scared the children after telling them we were all standing on graves.
