Welcome to "One Potato, Two Antiques"

Welcome to “One Potato, Two Antiques”

I took a different kind of trip when traveling the Bloomfield Antique Mile on Routes 5 and 20, with my cousin from South Carolina.  She was hunting with a purpose, but I was an instant time traveler upon spotting a Creedence Clearwater Revival  Record, Lincoln Logs, Archie Jelly Jar Glasses and Golden Books.

I was flooded with memories of my childhood summer nights:   Games of Spud, Around the House, Kick the Can, 500, and the incredible freedom that came with getting shooed away from the TV set, and instructed “Be home before dark.”

One of our stops was One Potato Two, a 60+ Antique Dealer Co-op within a 7000 sq ft space, packed with period collectibles, all kinds of interesting furniture, vintage clothing, crafts and fantastic ideas on refinishing/refurbishing something old into something new.

I remember my mother showing me how to use a thimble when hand-sewing.

“One Potato, Two,” that all-important childhood choosing game was the inspiration for this mega-memory store.
