Haunted Antique Pick

We get estate items from the most interesting places on Cape Ann. The person who sold us our last batch of goods claims the house he lives in is reputed to be one of the most haunted places in Gloucester MA!

It has a small private cemetery in back of it.

Coincidentally the Pine St location is also one of the oldest homes in Gloucester!

The treasures from this home are only a small portion of what we’ll have in the next auction.

The auction date isn’t set yet, but here are a few pictures of the pick.
