We also found this small foot stool and an old ladder that is just begging for a few quilts to be hung from it.
Who loves Vintage?
We found this vintage vending machine that came out of a laundromat in Wisonsin. It would be incredible in a laundry room - or, we imagined, putting those small cereal boxes in it and letting the kids dispense their breakfast. :) Either way, it needs a home and its something we aren't likely to find again.
We also got our hands on some vintage watering cans - I love these!
Our battery operated tapers are some of our biggest selling items in. In the top photo, you saw our 7" Americana tapers. We now have a 11" taper with a timer. This one is sure to be a best-seller also.
We finally got our new line of jewelry in. This is solid brass (no lead or nickle) and made in the USA.
One of our local craftsmen, Richard, just brought in this amazing cupboard that he built. Its a beautiful red on black primitive finish. The shelves inside provide great storage. Don't you love it?
Do you love chocolate?
We just picked up these locally (Apex, NC) handmade chocolate truffles. You've got to give them a try. They make a great gift also for teachers, friends, hostesses and co-workers. You won't be able to eat just one. The variety pack offers four delictable flavors.
