…….OOOOH the treasures we use to find at this store called the Triple “E”.
I’m not sure why it was called the Triple E – I only know that at one moment in time, they had three different antique stores lined up along North Railway Street. Real estate must have been at a low on North Railway in those days or the antique business was a thriving enterprise.
I’d go in there for something to do… you know, to waste time when I knew that the chores were piling up at home and I needed an escape. I’d run my fingers along all the brass bells, old glass lanterns and admire the diverse wood grain in the classic bedroom dressers and matching sets they had in the showroom.
There’s something to say about all those old treasures. I remember thinking “if only I had the money to buy this, or the money to buy that!” A luxury I knew I couldn’t afford.
