It’s been quite a while since we’ve made any new posts here, or on our facebook page. Working a 40 plus hour a week day job and balancing this business on the side can be overwhelming sometimes. We’ve been super busy trying to fill orders for coffee tables and some of our lights that there hasn’t been enough hours in the day to get out picking, work on new projects, etc. So I took some time last weekend to make a little sculpture thing for Jessica. I found an old John Deere farm implement at a flea market. Super heavy old steel. Some type of disc for plowing from what I can tell. Used the existing bolts and hardware that came with it to make an axle of sorts, and welded up a stand out of some old rusty plate steel and one of the leafsprings I had laying around. Turned out pretty good I think. Currently NFS.
This one of a kind table lamp is made from an old primitive barn find rabbit trap. Frame is made of wood, crudely fashioned, but well built, with various styles of chicken wire. Lamp has a nice rustic look and is very cool. The trap stands on it’s end, bottom “door” slides out to gain access to the inside to change bulbs. The lamp was wired up with two bakelite style sockets, wired with vintage style cloth covered twisted wire, and comes with two vintage “Edison” style coil filament light bulbs. Cord is approximately 8′ long and plugs into a standard wall outlet, with vintage style plug. I knew when I found this thing, it was a great candidate to be cleaned up and repurposed.
Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.
Dimensions: 14″ high x 7″ x 7″
You don’t see too many of these anymore. Vintage wooden strawberry baskets and crate. Wooden crate has a hinged top, open up to reveal two layers of small balsa-style wooden baskets, once used to transport strawberries to market.
Crate has a nice medium colored stained finish, two levels of wire/wooden baskets, all intact, 16 total, with wooden separators. Crate has a couple cracks in the slates, but overall very solid and usable. Makes a great display and conversation piece. This is a true barn find straight from Pennsylvania.
24″ long x 12″ deep x 12″ high
Primitive, vintage farm table with Early American colored stained top planks and painted base with nice original patina. Base is painted off white, over what looks like a Williamsburg blue.

Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Asking $150 obo.
This is a very heavy duty vintage cast iron pulley. Originally used in barns to lift bales of hay up into the lofts. Nice solid condition with original patina. Included is a heavy vintage bracket that was found at a different location, but fits the pulley perfectly.
These make great decorator or utilitarian pieces. Can be used to hang plants, pots and pans, lights, etc.
Dimensions: Wheel is 12″ in diameter, Bracket is approximately 12″ long and total height is around 18″
Materials: cast iron
One of a kind hanging pendant light fixture featuring three vintage reproduction industrial cage lights. Three cage lights styled after trouble lights used in the 20s-40s, are made of brass wire, and are hinged to open or close as desired, depending on what look you prefer, and for bulb removal. They fit around new black sockets and are wired with vintage style black cloth covered twisted wire. They use two different styles of reproduction Edison bulbs, one with “squirrel cage” filaments and two round bulbs with spiral filaments. All three lights are suspended from a vintage leaf spring removed from my 1954 GMC pickup and was left with its original patina.
Included with the light are three bulbs and canopy for mounting to and existing box in the ceiling.
Size: Approx 30″ long. Wire from leaf spring to ceiling can be cut to desired length, but comes with approx. 24″ of wire.
Thanks for Looking!
