I added this small clothes rack to hold linens. I'm not sure I like it, though. I'll see how it works out over the next couple of weeks. I think people are going to knock things off of it pretty easily. One of those good ideas that may turn out to be not so good.
Boy, can you tell I was hurrying when I took these? The floor really isn't that unlevel!
Here I moved the Ransburg canisters and cookie jar to to top of the old kitchen cabinet. I liked the red and white contrast. I grouped few other red items and left the gold polka dot pottery for contrast. I also grouped the peachglow pieces and added a vintage cookbook to this table.
On the wall is a recent acquisition, a coal miners lunch bucket. These are getting harder and harder to come by and the prices reflect that scarcity.
We also found this copper boiler recently. It's in good condition with no holes, but it has a few dents which is not uncommon for this old pieces. I debated cleaning it to a bright copper shine, but decided to leave that to the taste of its (hopefully) new owner. Right or wrong, do you think?
I made some major changes in this cabinet. I removed most of the stock I had on these shelves--it's been there a while with no real interest so it was time for a change. I added new items and displayed the older things so that they showed better. For instance, on the top shelf there is a green Depression glass bowl. I've had it there for a bit, but you could not really see its color. Its new home shows it to better advantage. Will it sell? Who knows, but at least it might get noticed.
Here's the bottom shelves of the big cabinet. The butter churn is a recent find, actually 2 finds. We found the jar in a junk shop, then I went on eBay to find the top to fit it. A lot of what we do is like this--find, fix, clean, repair, and then finally and hopefully sell.
We still (always) have more to do in this booth, but I was happy with the changes we made this time.
