Second hand, first rate

My latest effort for Fresh Water is full up with all things new-to-you in Cleveland, from where to find vintage stereo equipment to the end-all-be-all shop for antique tableware and entertaining finery.

As usual, I had a blast with this one and along the way, I ran into some surprises--like where the movie people go when they need furniture for sets and production offices here in Cleveland or the tale of one eastern European family's harrowing tale of immigration.

Here's the article.

And now for a few snaps from some of the places covered therein.

Cool stuff. Is there a place an old hillbilly could find a recycled dewy maiden?
