We’re Not Your Mother’s Antique Shop! A phrase often heard in a place where old is really FUN. TearDrop Memories NorthFork Pet Antiques stands apart from other fine Galleries and Antique shops in New Hope Pa. Could it be the real antique wooden Civil War era coffin in the window, the dozens of Victorian antique Bird Cages, some date to the Renaissance? TearDrop Memories has Victorian Mourning jewelry and Georgian human hair wreaths, 19th century medical Veterinary tools and rare Pet books.
TearDrop Memories NorthFork Pet Antiques takes pride in its Victorian photograph selection. 8500 and growing! Thousands of Post mortem death photos, Victorian Pet pictures & 19th century Circus Freaks! Yet many say what really sets us apart are the enthusiastic Free tours we give, often in real Victorian costume to the many friends who visit. Truly a warm mix of theater, history and retail at TearDrop Memories. NEVER a Reproduction, Made in China or Barcode Label.
