Don & Ann’s Antique Roe - Bird in Hand, PA

I've been across the thresholds of many antique stores in my day. 
This one ranks pretty high up there. 
An infinite variety of items, displayed in such clever, artsy ways.
 A visit to Don & Ann's Antique Roe is an entertaining treasure hunt!

Located at 2705 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird in Hand, Pennsylvania,
Don & Ann's sits a bit off the road, between buildings as you see here.
Go on back!

A little history for you:
The reason behind the shop's name is that Don & Ann's last name is Roe.
The pair set up their antique shop in the town of Gap in Lancaster County,
before it was moved to its current location in the neighboring village of Bird in Hand.
  
Their grandson Josh Roe & his wife Leanne now run the business. 
Prior to this, Leanne had been a nurse for 9 years, 
but left nursing to manage the store, which she is passionate about!
I met her that day and enjoyed our chat. She has a real knack for merchandising!

More juicy background:
Don & Ann's Antique Roe has supplied antiques for movie sets!
One example is "Beloved", which starred and was produced by Oprah Winfrey.
Another - remember the bell that was rung in M. Knight Shyamalan's "The Village"? Yep.
Pretty cool, eh?


Come inside with me, and get ready to be lured down one aisle after the next.
