It has been a little while since our last update because we’ve been so busy with lots of new projects. At the beginning of June we returned from one of our buying trips and have added thousands of new items in the store. We picked up a number of old shoe stitching racks, which were used in shoe making factories. The recently delivered 53 foot shipping container was the most tightly packed one we’ve ever had. Sixteen foot long cast iron bridge signs, furniture, letters from Wrigley Field, beautiful doors, and silverware molds from the Lunt silversmith company are now part of our collection. We also purchased some amazing amusement park flowers that can be seen in our newly redesigned “What’s for Sale” section of our website. Over the next couple of months we will be rolling out more changes to our website to make it easier to view what we have for sale online. Please keep in mind that although we have quite a few items available online, we have thousands more in our showroom and our extensive 30,000 square feet of warehouse space. Make sure when you come into the shop to ask to see all of the other items we have available.
Over the winter we also added a new dry space to our lumber yard where we can store some of our reclaimed lumber to keep the moisture content of the wood lower. This means that we should have dry material available year round for reclaimed furniture, bars, siding and many other projects.
