About

There was a day manufacturer's employed skilled and semi skilled craftsmen to make furniture and household accessories. These items were affordable and within reach to own and enjoy. Many of these items were made in the USA... a rarity today. Some were built abroad in many various countries from around the world... yet affordable for most of us. That was then and this is now...
We're not in Kansas any more.

I'm a collector and out of sorts some may say...
to rescue an item and restore it someday
all products of the day's gone-by...
left to the elements... given last rights to die...
one by one and two by two...
a hammer... a nail... a spot of glue
now rising up like the Phoenix... alive and new...
restored or reincarnated...
affordable and available for you…

I'm a "jack of many trades"... from woods and metals and electronics repair... photography and the arts... to construction and restoration some design... then over to some poetry and gardening. You'll find my inventory a melting pot of the articles and items I collect and have given a new life as a restored or reincarnated and functional household item.

RESTORED (or) RE-INCARNATED...
What is the difference you ask... Basically an item that is RESTORED is kept to it's original design and functional use.

An item that is RE-INCARNATED could be a derivative of 2 or more items and take on a different function entirely or remain the same.

Additionally... you'll find all kinds of item's from the mid-century modern era to include lighting... wall accents... art and photography of my own creation.
