back in the clothespin business.

i had been out of vintage clothespins
 for at least a couple of months.

this was not good when
vintage clothespins are one of my best sellers.

two estate sale scores
last weekend changed all that
and i have lots different clothespins
back in inventory.

the ones above are especially nice
because there is a variety of sizes and
very nice old patinas.

vintage clothespins are now
available again at

what a little orange will do.

a couple of my regular customers have asked
recently if i had any primitives....  

hanging around here that i wanted to sell...

so i went out a poked around and found this
very cool old orange paper towel rack
in the potting shed.

i think it is amazing what an old coat of orange paint
that becomes crusty and worn
can do for something so simple.

from kitchen utilitarian to statement piece.

that was quick. SOLD
