trash to treasure large and small







SOME NICE BIG DARK COUNTERS CAME IN THIS WEEK.... and some nice shabby white ones.....they are all out of archetectural salvage ...we have about 8 right now...








these are some of the new counters or islands we have been making....several with doors...and a finished back.... so now we have short, tall, doors , no doors, open back , closed back....these big things are popular for stores as well as homes as islands or big bases for tvs......and now we are thinking bars too....PERFECT FOR THE STEAMPUNK KITCHEN.
..OR THE GOTHC GETAWAY
OR ANY COOL INDIE SHOP
or big tv stands
OR ANY COTTAGE OR SHABBY SHOP OR HOME...
or a big garden display
or on a porchif it was mainly protected from the weather...



they are big and heavy and mostly out of salvaged wood and tin or old doors with accents of house salvage like newel posts and corbels etc etc.... .



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
around the store....we are totally fluffed and hoping for a good weekend....some spring things have come in....we have ordered our garden iron, our first batch of handmade birdhouses have come in...



another big event...we have opened an etsy store...mainly to sell vintage supplies to the alltered artists out there...the SHABBY WORLD....THE GOTHIC WORLD... THE ALTERED ART WORLD..THE TRASH TO TREASURE WORLD....... im so excited about it...using what some would call junk is so satisfying....so if you have an altered artist or some steampunk builder or a shabby crafter send them over to http://www.gypsymarket.etsy.com/ but if you need some nice big parts...like doors, windows, old tin or furniture parts , you need to come here....
