The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Lamps for Sale

If any of you are interested, my wife and I would like to sell this set of lamps. We bought them on eBay several years ago. They are very nice and fully functional. The base and caps are made from a plaster or chalk which has been painted. They date to 1909 (see picture above). The shades are made of mica (a touch of wear on the inside, but in good shape considering the age) and the lamps have their original wiring.

The supposed appraisal value for these are $400 for the set. We didn't pay near half of this, so we'll take $150 or your best offer plus shipping.

If interested, please leave a comment here or email me at thedevilqueen(AT)hotmail(DOT)com.

Pictures and posts to come, hopefully tomorrow.
