On September 9th, friends gathered, and surprised, Fern Eldridge, to celebrate her 90th birthday!  Fern began her antiquing career at the age of 8 when her father took her along on his travels to find antiques, and she never stopped looking for the classic country items that she loves. Fern is still active today as the owner of Fern Eldridge and Friends, a group shop on Route 4 in Northwood, New Hampshire.  While Vicky, Bill, and others assist customers during the week, you will find Fern there on most weekends greeting and assisting buyers.  Happy Birthday Fern!
