I spent most of the day on Sunday at Second Hand Rose in Buffalo, Minnesota. I was setting up my space for the 4 day June sale that starts on Thursday. And I was sufferring with my usual problem: stuffing 300 square feet of junk into my 78 square foot space. I have 2 large hardware store bins, a large work bench, an eight unit locker set and a warehouse cart. In addition I have an oak file cabinet and assorted smaller tables and chairs. I still have more smalls to smear over all these "not smalls".
This beautiful work bench would make a great kitchen sink or bathroom vanity counter.
There is an arts and crafts style filing cabinet sitting atop the work bench with the green lockers behind and the warehouse cart underneath.
Nice red utility lamp that we picked last week.
Great school hanging map case with all nine maps still intact.
The wooden head is more interesting than the almost new riding helemt.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
