Wander out of downtown Wilmington, Delaware on Maryland Avenue and you soon find yourself on East Newport Pike heading toward Christiana. Among the interesting shops is Willow Tree Antiques, tucked into a cozy cottage on the right side of the road.
For 21 years, Sandra Messick has been gathering and selling antiques and collectibles at this popular shop. Asked what she considers her specialty, Sandra says, "Furniture."
As they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words," so here is a collage of items I recently found at Willow Tree. And Sandra does have a website and Facebook page which she updates with her latest finds, so you can check out what is available. But best of all, stop by this interesting shop and see for yourself! You can also visit The Willow Tree website for more details.
