Rust, Crust, and All!!!
Are you curious yet? Here is a preview of some of our items from a previous post in case you missed it.
Now I already have an Etsy shop. Shop At Lakewood is for all my finds that have a vintage flair and have some country charm. I did not intentionally set out to open Old Time Pickers. It happened naturally. It evolved all on its own.
It started when Tool Man (hubby) and I were at an auction about a month ago. I started to bid on a pile which I normally wouldn't. Some would say it was junk and Tool Man asked why I wanted it. That small pile had some weathered wood in it...a small beat up bench...I had to have it...I wanted it to sell in my shop...then I decided I wanted it for myself...you know how that goes!
So for the best explanation and to help Tool Man understand I was not alone in my desire for this so called junk, I introduced him to Etsy and opened a whole new world for him. His previous hobby has centered strictly around old tools. Now he has discovered that industrial vintage is cool. Rust and crust is popular. Pieces with history are to be cherished.
