Road Trip Report

My "assistant" and I drove to my
home state a few weeks ago to visit 
family for a few days. 
  
While we were there we hit
the road with my mom to
shop my favorite source for the 
industrial salvage 
furniture and lighting 
I stock my shops with. 
This is me with my friend, 
(whose name shall remain anonymous to protect my source!)  
one of the creative geniuses

who take parts 
like these








do a lot of this:

  
and turn them into this:















They also 
create these 
fabulous light fixtures:







The best part?

It's the real deal
not the cheaply made
reproduction
imported industrial style furniture
popping up everywhere these days!


It's all made from
reclaimed, salvaged parts and 
I love it all!


Curious about what I picked up
for my shops?


Make plans to check it out at:


The Kramer Angle
at 
Chartreuse and Co.
in Buckeystown, Maryland 
(open the third Friday - Sunday of every month) 

Wild Rose and Co. Marketplace
in Walkersville, Maryland 
(open Tuesday - Sunday) 

and at my next 
Barn Show 
in Gambrills, Maryland
(October 7th, 8th and 9th)

  My mom doesn't always "get"
industrial style but she's my
biggest fan and I love having her 
with me on buying trips!

Wow! What terrific pieces! I love the industrial look, and it's even better when it's authentic rescued bits and bobs. Thanks for sharing.

Well I know you have the blown glass lamps in your shop, but what else did you get?

Do we have to go to your shop to find out?
