Welcome to 2nd Time Around. I hope you will join us by posting something that is a 2nd Time Around treasure…something that is from an antique store, flea market, thrift store, garage sale, etc.
This week I would like to share a very unusual piano that is in the only antebellum home we have in our town. This piano is a square baby grand, and was donated to the historical home many years ago. The story is that the piano originally came from Germany and was brought to Mississippi down a barge on the Mississippi River, then brought to our area by horse and buggy.
Tourists to the home always love this piece and have lots of questions about it. I researched the piano, and according to what I found the value is anywhere from $18,000 -$80,000! The piano is not in very good working condition…lots of the keys don’t play. So far, no one has been able to repair it, but it does make for a beautiful piece of furniture.

Thanks for stopping by today!
