What's old is new
This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.

So I bid and bought two cast iron hay trolleys, now to turn them in something better. Check out "Restoration Hardware" online they have an awesome catalogue and go to ceiling lighting then scroll down and see the awesome light they have made of a similar trolley that would be great over a kitchen island/pool table/coffee shop checkout.

|another great piece|
|$595 with painted plywood for a lid and no guts on the inside (a little steep even for Coke)|
|I have this lamp in orange sans the shade, $75 for this one I think I paid $5 for mine in a salvage yard.|
|I think this was an original and not a new copy, I flipped it over and basically took it apart. All tags were missing but the material looked like it had age to it|
|Looks like Pyrex but had no label or stamp, I liked the drizzled glaze look.|
|May have to sell some blood one day to finally get a brass blade in really good condition|
|this has a great mid century look to it|
