Having a really great day today ! My wife and I helped start up a charity called "Angel Bus ". Today we took a 7 year child and his mom down to Janet Weiss Children's Hospital in Danville, Pa. for an appointment.

Feeling good after doing a good deed, we decided to stop on the way home at a local Antique shop.

I am looking for an old Victorian mantel for my Man Cave project.

Didn't find a mantel but ............ I found a ......Merry Bride 244 Base Burner . .... that just came in the door yesterday. If I had the truck it would have been home today !

Good on you, Paulie!!!!!

You sure can find them. I think this should be your stove mantra. :D

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your rusty messes yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming store.
Send these, the homeless, tempting-toasters to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden glow from the door!"
:D

So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.

Thanks Rob ....... The vendor was selling it for a neighbor who was in his late 80's . He told me his parents bought it new when he was a kid.
