The Marcy Carsey Collection contains elements of traditional American Folk Art that have been purchased over the past 25 years. It features 19th and early 20th century furniture, weathervanes, trade signs, anniversary tin, quilts, hand-hooked rugs, toys, whimsical pieces and hand-made musical instruments. Central to the inventory is the Weinberg Collection of Antique Carriages, which consists of 38 vehicles of transportation and amusement. Purchased in its entirety in 1990, The Weinberg Collection is a rare remnant of turn-of-the-century Americana which is documented in many reference books. It is singular and remarkable.
“I have always been attracted to things that make me smile, ” says Carsey. “It is important that others get to share the joy that these pieces have given me and my family over the years.”
