joeleyIt has been about 18 months since my epic road trip to Kentucky and I am itching to make my way back there. Everywhere I turn I find something new I want to check out on my next trip – like today’s find: Joe Ley Antiques of Louisville.

As the fine folks at Joe Ley say: “Come step into a joyful piece of the past where you can poke around, feast your eyes, and maybe find a piece of history to take home with you. It’s a carnival, a museum, a treasure hunt, a trip through time three stories high. Come often, because everything old is new again.”

This sounds like the perfect place for me!
