Leather, zinc & willow

Ahhhh...those three words conjure up some beautiful images. Here are some images of my latest acquisitions.
A summertime favorite here, starfish strands
Vintage buckets overflowing with framed shells on linen
starfish, large polished clam shells and sea urchins (which look great filling our hobnail mercury glass vases)
ATTENTION LOCALS! Our indoor/outdoor Buckeye Lake pillows have been replenished...HURRY if you want one!
had these sent in from Belgium, wonderful, roughed up leather shirt boxes
old miners' hanging baskets and a vintage dough trough from a European bakery, beautil as a planter or filled with ice and beverages at your next gathering
vintage wicker chair
big, oval wash tubs from Holland
two huge vintage life preservers
vintage willow trunks, fabulous texture AND storage!
trio of mini buckets hanging on each other, great for organizing your own creative space
dripping with wired glass crystals, lovely, romantic bulbs covers
My new favorite, a tall stately, galvanized pitcher, would be gorgeous filled with blue hydrangeas or bunches of queen anne's lace. The one line I have carried since way back in the day, Farmhouse lavender products, and I keep adding more of their products for you all to try. They are addictive, hand made in small batches and earth friendly.
a vintage GIANT industrial lightbulb
a great find, vintage wicker settee
an awesome, as found, vintage wicker table in aqua paint
a pile of vintage zinc sap pots from Belgium

Lisa all your new finds are fabulous!

And to anyone local to the shop, I can attest to the fact that the zinc dough trough/tub IS perfect for parties!! I have one and we have used it filled with ice and drinks and it holds a TON!

And believe it or not, I also have several of those same kind of vintage rattan trunks and again -- Lisa is right! They are incredible as storage that also looks great!!

I wish I could shop your store in person for some of those amazing new things, Lisa!! :)

Beautiful!!! I am especially fond of the oversized industrial lightbulb which will look fantastic in a new antique lantern that I am working on...

You have a great eye...
