In a small town just west of Philly, whose name I don't presently 
remember, my wife and I found a sort of cross between museum and 
consignment shop.  They featured mostly weapons (the one I remember 
in particular was a 16th century rapier in the entryway) of our 
period and later, but also had some eclectic stuff besides (the 
most memorable being a backup Sputnik that never went up!).  If 
this sounds interesting to you, I can find out where it was and 
what it was called.
