Floyd's Barber Chair

I call it the Floyd Chair. The chair was originally used in a barber shop in Nanticoke, PA in the 1940's and it is over 100 years old.

This is an homage to Floyd the Barber from The Andy Griffith Show.  For anyone that has ever watched the show, Floyd Lawson  never cut the hair of anyone that came in the shop; they would just stand around and converse, sometimes not even in the shop itself. Although I do cut hair in my barber shop, I never use Floyd's Barber Chair. 

 The corner has other items of interest, as well.  I have a barber license for an Arthur Hook dated March 1932. He was a barber on Main Street in Shickshinny, PA for over 40 years. 

Also I have a replica antique radio from my mother's house, a gumball machine, an old coat rack with flat-top sign, a table - which is meant to be Floyd'd barber station - and a shoe shine kit. If you would like to know more, you're always welcome to ask. I'd be happy to tell you anything about good ol' Floyd and his corner. 

"If I keep this up I'll probably end up with a barber's claw from holding the shears all day." - Floyd Lawson
