Evelyn Ludy, owner of Homestead Antiques, has 35 years of experience in dealing with antique pieces and primitives. Some visitors believe this to be the “best antique and collectible shop in the area where the Proprietor is extremely helpful and friendly.” Another couple says, “We drive from New Jersey to shop here.”
