You Can Find Amazing Antiques At These 10 Places In Kentucky
Some people like modern materialistic items, but antiques are quite popular in Kentucky. Items crafted over 100 years ago were often made by hand. Artisans created furniture, statues, trunks, and even picture frames with tools and time, instead of factory reproduction. That’s why in many cases, slight differences can be found in the craftsmanship.

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky.
