results of Alabama trip
- Hello all,
Just got back from a trip to Alabama (visiting inlaws) and spent a
number of days combing the antique stores for DB stuff. Alas, no
luck AT ALL. The only high points were three mint Matson menus by
Savage for $10 apiece and a MINT 17 inch blue Moby Dick chop plate
for $125 (the only piece of early Vernon that I found). I wasn't
expecting much, but thought I might find more Rockwell Kent stuff
than I did. Oh well, I was hoping to report on finding the "mother
lode" to start the year off right, but such is life.
Hope all are enjoying the new year and making great finds!
A 17" Moby Dick chop plate for $125 is a WONDERFUL start to the new year!

True enough, I was thrilled, although a bit chagrined
because I had just walked out of the room it was in when my
girlfriend called me back and asked, sweetly, whether I
might have missed something on my first go around and did I
want to look in the far corner where there just happened to
be a rather large blue and white plate with a certain ship
on it in plain view, so the credit is really hers. Of
course, it was the first antique shop we went to so
anticipation was high for every subsequent store. . . Aloha,
