Antiques Loft News

Our Antiques Loft is open and ready for you to come visit! We are still finishing some organizing, but I believe that will be a non-stop thing.

In addition to our Antiques Loft, we are also opening a Lititz themed gift shop. Be sure to keep an eye out for more details!

Fourth of July in Lititz!

There is a rumor going around that we might possibly have a float in this year Fourth of July parade in Lititz, PA. I'm not completely sure if that is true, but you should come check out the parade and keep an eye out for us! Regardless, you are sure to enjoy a great parade in the greatest small town! The parade is Friday, July 3rd at 6:30 pm!

Featured Antiques     
Lightening Rod With Translucent Glass Bulb


These particular lightening rods would line the top of barns and be used to draw the electrical charge from lightening away from the structure. The rods were then connected to a copper cable that would drive the charge into the ground - leaving the structure unharmed. The beautiful glass bulbs were just a pretty decorative addition.

  Stop by to see or buy this, as well as other antiques! 

What Is It?!

In this new section, we are going to feature different antiques that we have discovered and have no idea what they are for, what they do, or any history behind them. If you know anything about this, please contact us and fill us in!

Out Of The Past

According to The Lititz Record Express,

110 Years Ago
May 26, 1905
Trolley Notes - You can now go from Lancaster to Ready by trolley by changing cars at Adamstown. It takes about two-and-a-half hours to make the trip.

120 Years Ago
May 31, 1895
Typhoid Epidemic Starts at Owl Hill? - There is an epidemic of typhoid fever in Lancaster. As it is evidently due to impure water, the Water Committee of Councils decided to have the city water analyzed by a chemist, and instructed the Mayor to have all persons arrested who pollute the streams from which the supply is drawn. Some go so far as to state that the pollution arises from a small stream near Owl Hill, Warwick township, where P.D. Michael as a glue factory.

130 Years Ago
May 29, 1885
"Mum" - The mum sociable given at this place on Monday evening by the young ladies of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, proved to be grand success. There were about one hundred present, and owing to the rare novelty of the programme, all enjoyed themselves to the same extent as would a half-starved wretch devouring a highly seasoned custard pie.

* All stories are taken word for word out of the Lititz Record Express. They are credited with all research.

We are almost completely owed and operated by family, and here at Sylvan Brandt we believe in that - family and home. We believe in preserving our past - that our past is what shapes our future. We believe that everyone deserves respect and love, and that collaboration will get us far. We want to help you preserve our strong American history and make your home one-of-a-kind. We promise to treat you like family and want to work together with you to make your home a history-rich sanctuary.
