COLLECTING JUNK SINCE 1931
My Papaw Andy, my Daddy's Daddy, had a bunch of...crap.
My dad and his brother followed suit.
I couldn't understand it! Why keep scraps of aged wood, rusty tools, nuts, bolts, or leftover commercial fabrics? Why hoard metal, wire, parts to obsolete machines, and bent nails? They laughed about it. Threatening to dump a "truckload of junk" into one another's yards or basements.
Papaw Andy passed away in August of 2010. Not long after, the genetic tendency to see 'potential in picks' awoke in my blood. My uncle was tearing down an old fence...the most perfectly weathered boards of cedar you've ever seen. Suddenly, I just couldn't let my uncle haul all of that glorious old wood to the dump. I could see in it the prospect of days filled with glorious 'piddlin.'
So, my uncle took his junk, gave it to my husband, and they "dumped" it in my yard.
Thus, Corn Cob Cove was born. And each time I save a button, a scrap of wood, some twine, or a stained shirt, I now see, with new eyes, that there is no such thing as 'junk.'
Inspired by family, East Tennessee, and treasured second, third, and fourth hand picks - come to the Cove for Local Lore on Signs and More!

Hidy! My name is Britt. I'm a hillbilly, descended from a long line of mountaineers. I use the Smoky Mountains and their lore as inspiration for home decor, ornaments, and crafting supplies. I was born AFTER my time.
Maker, The Tool Man
If Britt needs it sawed, drilled, or rusted...I am her right hand man. I do a lot of the grunt work in the Cove. But it's worth it to see my wife's imagination come to life.
