A NICE BIG LOAD ..






JUST IN.....A NICE BIG LOAD...
old christmas balls,
old bottles ,
oak dressers
chairs
some french provincial lamps , figural
fancy white bedroom set , shabby and chippy with cherubs
big pile of kitchen primitives , nice old ones.
casket shrouds , i thought they were gypsy scarves
stack bookcase, not oak , so really reasonable


rag rugs, nice big
cute old trunk
store dummies...
lots of pictures and frames... ladies, mostly
neat seated halltree out of old door ...big and nice.
a small black counter/island , with tin door...
several buffets , painted and not
a batch of nice paned windows
wades peace signs

AND LOTS MORE..........


we got a whole box truck full of great antique misc last week.... plus a refill on our garland plus some large barn stars...plus some great things from the carpenters...
and the rough room is filling back up...

and also we saved back A NICE BIG PILE , like christmas and newer misc, FOR THE YARDSALE IN AUGUST...




.THIS IS AN OLD PICTURE OF JON... but it kind of says it all....my load was almost this big...




.and!!! i think i have a yard saler who will be bringing us more good stuff...

THE NICE THING ABOUT OUR CUSTOMERS.... today the shop was a wreck...besides the huge amount coming in, we sold a 9 ft long cabinet that was totally full of primitives late yesterday....so all that was trashing the prim room, ..and everything moved around to get the big cabinet out...plus the main hallway totally full of the incoming load.. ...it was kind of chaos.... we kind of apologized to the folks coming thru and almost all said thats ok....we like it like this......




plus.....i got some nice little treasures for altered artists and the steampunk fans that i will be putting on my etsy site http://www.gypsymarket.etsy.com/

we get the neatest people thru our store....today it was an old customer we havent see n for a long time............... i missed him but he left a card with his his blog and i sure enjoyed his site.....and the video at the bottom of the site..... talk about making lemonade out of lemons.....!!! enjoy

Cant stand it...I get the shakes when I hear of all that neat old furniture and pieces! Your customers have to be in heaven when they hear the news of MORE goodies from Green Oaks! I promise I would be there every week! I had a customer come in from texas and she noticed that here in Utah there are no salvage shops...she is probably right. i know of one, but could not disclose, wasnt that naughty?
