Give Him The World...

with this fabulous Mid Century Library Globe...
A new addition to the shop this week.

Dad was our inspiration for our newest window display...after all,
Father's Day is Sunday June 20th.

A pair of very old and very HEAVY architectural doors are the perfect backdrop
for our man window.
Each door measures 32" wide and 84" tall.
A few ideas on how you can use these doors.
* Display in a shop or restaurant
* Wine Cellar or Pantry Doors
* Use outside in the garden - leading to a secret garden path with vines growing over the iron!
* Remove the iron, refinish and use inside the home
They have the original old handles which I am pretty sure are brass underneath the paint...very cool set. Will require 2 men to move em since they weigh about 150 pounds each!
Price $595
$795 -Sold
We LOVE this grand old drafting table! This is the piece that all the men drool over..and the ladies dream of! It's a desk, a dining table, a bar, a crafting is whatever you want it to be!

The height will adjust by turn of the old crank and lifting the top!
Character dings and a warm original patina make this a very special and unique piece.
This vintage industrial stool with the old green paint is a great match with the table,
but would be equally sweet as a kitchen stool!

An old glass front metal bookcase will hold your favorite collection of books or seashells. Looks great sitting on top of the drafting table, but maybe it would fit on your kitchen counter top to hold your cookbooks! If brown isn't your color, have it painted in a new shade.
Set of vintage books- Sold.
We married this vintage industrial cage shade and vintage sconce. We love it and know you will too! Truly a one of a kind funky little light!

How AMAZING is this? An Art Deco era book rack. $125 -sold

We fell in love with these old springs the minute we saw them..who doesn't LOVE this shade of green?!! You can use them as book ends or to hold a pair of scissors on your crafting table!

$18 pr -Sold
Care to "tie one on?" We couldn't resist this pair of vintage novelty tumblers.
Wish there were more to offer you, but we only have the two.

And last , but certainly not least, is this beautiful old french bronze statue.

If you see anything of interest in our blog photos, feel free to leave a comment or ring us Monday through Saturday. We'd love to hear from you!
