I love the creativity people have when they shop our sale. Many tell us how they are going to "re-purpose" the vintage items they are purchasing for use in their home. Here are some examples:
The two photos above are of a very old grain bin scoop. The lucky owner said she would use it at Christmas for decor, adding greenery and other beautiful treasures to it. I'd love to see this!
Another item that was re-purposed (though I don't have a photo ) was an old antique "washer". It consisted of a long pole with a funnel-like thing at the bottom. I'm going to take the credit here for finding a new purpose for this. It didn't sell until I put some rolls of toilet paper on the pole so you could use it as a unique storage for extra rolls of toilet paper. I just slipped those toilet paper rolls on it and someone snapped it up. People even came back and asked if we had more of those "toilet paper holders". Hah!
What new creative uses have you found for your vintage items? I'd love to hear about them!
