Chris returned from our European buying trip just in time for To help me at The rose Bowl Flea market this past Sunday.
While he was in Europe he managed to cover 8000 kilometers and seven countries! He found an entire container full of fabulousness! The container is set to arrive in March and I can't wait!!!
Chris has hit the road again and is headed to the mid west for another load of barn wood! Our truck is officially one year old and up to 79,000 miles! I LOVE toyota's. They take a licking and keep on ticking!
Meanwhile, I have started our new line of Swiss and Italian military blanket tote bags (stay tuned for pics!) and our new line of Barnwood beds! Hope you ll all like them!
I am in Utah now. Was hoping to do a little skiing this week but it won't stop raining! Not a fan of rain skiing! So I went and found some killer military barrels to turn in to lamps instead! I'll be back this weekend to get everything ready for The Long Beach Antique Market. We ll have lots of cool new finds!
Check back next week to see what craziness is happening!
We just found another grain elevator and now have the bins at the warehouse! The bins are 11 inches wide, 7 inches tall, and still on the original belt. They come as one bin or up to ten bins long on the belt.
The grain bins make excellent planters, hang them in the kitchen filled with fruits and veggies, or in the office to sort mail and other supplies!
They will be available this Sunday, February 16 at the Long Beach Flea Market or contact us directly for pricing and shipping options.
Chris has been working hard, scouring the countrysides of France, Germany, Austria, The Czech Republic and Hungary to round up some amazing new finds! There are 10 French Club chairs. With a little TLC they will be looking Uber fabulous. We have some really cool french school desks and chairs too. There are also French Laundry Baskets, German Bread Boards, Vintage leather medicine balls, tons of great bottles, French harvest tables, benches, chairs, and oh so much more!! This one should arrive at the end of February. Looking forward to the sale already!
We recently traveled to the midwest and disassembled a few fabulous, old barns! We now have some really amazing barn wood, mostly 1x12's, available for purchase. We will also be incorporating the wood in to some of our cool vintage industrial pieces! Stay tuned for photos!

Our container has just arrived from Europe and ,thanks to Chris, was stuffed full of French Jute! These Jute bags date back to the 1930's and 40's. Most of the French jute have the name of the grainery or mill that they belonged to and many also have street names and Images on them. All images and writing are original and have not been added to the bags. They are machine washable and can even handle the dryer! French Jute makes a great statement on upholstered furniture, pillows, tote bags, and even in a frame .
We will have an amazing selection of French Jute at our container sale this weekend, December 13 & 14, and available soon on our website!
