A smattering of recent finds. . .

The one e-mail or phone call we receive weekly is consistent..."What new things do you have in the shop this week?" Here is a handful of our recent finds. But please note, I was on an 8-hour buying today. With my truck full and loaded down we headed to the shop to unload around 5:30 this evening. Piles (!!) of beautiful, vintage hooked rugs, a vintage forest scene watercolor, an antique ice cream shop table with it's original vitreous china top, another Kramer urn with crusty old paint, a couple of old, painted chairs, a cast iron free standing fireplace screen, a large, old gesso framed mirror, ironstone platters and pitchers, vintage thermos - great for summer flower arrangements, a raspberry colored quilt, a primitive milking stool, just to name a few...for first viewing (and selection!) stop in tomorrow or Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm

Oh My! All that yummy stuff! Just came across your blog and love it. Your shop looks wonderful! Do you mind sharing that neutral/brown/tan paint color on the background wall. It's such a pretty color.
