We don’t do shows very often. Matter of fact this will only be the second one ever, since we’ve really been at it. We were invited to be vendors at Southampton Academy’s 4o-something annual antique show in Courtland, VA this weekend — March 3 and 4. We’ll have a ton of stuff, including 6 or 7 coffee tables, light fixtures, swag lamps, vintage clothing, traditional antiques and repurposed items. Basically everything currently in our online shop, plus some. Check out this slide show for a preview. Everything will be available for discounted prices compared and of course, somewhat negotiable.
If you’re not familiar, Courtland is right off Route 58, west of Suffolk and Franklin, VA. Approximately and hour’s drive from downtown Norfolk. Address and Mapquest directions below.
Hope to see you there!

This is a side table made from a reclaimed window. Based on the same design as the coffee tables we’ve been making. The window itself was lightly sanded and stained in a red mahogany stain, while the base and legs of the table are done in a dark kona stain for some subtle contrast. It was then finished in tung oil finish and hand waxed.
Inside storage area is made from rough cut 1×4 cedar boards. We used some early American style 15″ legs, it’s the perfect height for a side or end table next to your chair or sofa. The table also features a sash lock on one side to lock the top in place. Currently for sale in our Etsy shop. $225
Here’s another one of our window coffee tables that I finished up this weekend. Same basic design with a hinged top using a reclaimed window, hinges and cabinet pulls. Base is built solid out of new pine 2×6’s, with rough cut cedar planks staggered in 2″ and 4″ widths. The table received a base coat of kona stain, then topped off with a historic barn red paint. The sanded and scraped to give it a nice distressed finish. The table legs are also stained in kona colored stain. The entire piece was then hand waxed. The glass is original, but very solid and the undersides have been recaulked, as the original glaze breaks down over time.
Super stoked on the story on us in the Summer/Fall issue of Distinction magazine. Turned out really nice thanks to Hunter Spencer and Roberta Vowell.

Another slow moving project…54 GMC half ton pickup. 5 window. Buy some stuff so I can get this thing on the road!
