Its June at Second Hand Rose

Its the first Thursday in June and the monthly sale at Second Hand Rose is just about ready.  I finished setting and pricing in my space today.  In typical Hogs and Roses fashion I have 20 pounds of pieces stuffed into my 10 pound space. I'm very pleased with the stuff that I have.  My biggest concern is the weight limit for the 130 year old floor in our portion of the shop.

 I assembled this table from the base for an industrial meat grinder with a massive cast iron floor grate as a top.  I especially like the casting "THE BUFFALO" in the base.

 There's a large pine bar with an attached wooden prop and a cast iron fireplace surround leaning to the front.  The red linoleum topped table includes 2 matching chairs.

 A great grate is cast and wrought iron.

 Wonderful cast iron Railroad Crossing sign from the Miniature Train Co.

 A second stained and etched glass window.

 These two Art Deco metal grills are from the Sears Building before the Towers.

 The mailbox was made in Duluth.  We have forensicly examined it and determined that there are entrance and exit wounds through the box.

 Lots of industrial lights.

 I like the way the windmill fragment works as a crown over the sign.

 This is a great step back kitchen cupboard.

 A cast iron skate sharpening clamp turned into a bottle rack.

And of course, a folk art painting over the doorway.
