Callie Magee Antiques
I am a collector of old things. Some of them I sell to others who like me
want to preserve these old memories for the next generations.
"The older the ruin, the greener the moss.
the older the friendship, the keener the loss."

Old Sheet music
You see it everywhere you go looking for antiques. It is inexpensive. It is usuable in crafts projects.
It has great artwork in many cases. It is from the past. What is it?
Sheet music and song books.
How often do we open these and read the words or music? These are still good sellers in my store.
The snooty little ceramic band director is carrying it under his arm in preparation for his concert.
These early print musicians are certainly using music to follow during their entertainment.
Young people had music lessons and used the sheet music or these music books.
If you took piano or other musical instrument as a child, you will be familiar with some of these, depending on your age. The one above is very old.
