Pook & Pook Inc., a two-day sale the first weekend in Downingtown has a large number of important and expensive objects: Confederate flags civil war battle of the 19 st century fraktur birth certificate Montgomery County, and oil on canvas Fox hunting scene of Charles Morris Young, starter batteries, each of which is expected to sell the five digits.

But it also has more gay, and objects at an affordable price suitable for the Halloween season, including an Art Nouveau table lamp with the bat with its shades of glass, and an original Charles Addams cartoon.

The cartoon, which depicts two missionaries in front of a jungle witch dance, which obviously reduces the size of a doll, is a batch of about 300 in the first session, from 18:00, Friday alongside the gallery at 463 E. Lancaster Avenue.
