Years ago there were several antique stores (owners retiring) in eastern Pennsylvania (Lancaster and Chester Counties) that contacted several dealers throughout the east coast.  Turner Kirkland came up from Dixie Gun Works (TN) along with some other dealers from that state. Turner low balled them for what he was willing to pay and got run off. Several of the others purchased most of what was available, wonder if this is were some of that old inventory went? Question

He has done a nice job displaying his candy.... I love you  What a Face
