Announcement    Welcome to our online shop!

We just passed 200 sales!! A great big heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our Clients!!

If you are reading reviews, you will notice several unsatisfactory comments from early 2019. I suffered a major fire, and lost my shop and home. This difficult situation caused delayed communication and the need to issue some refunds. Several clients received refunds and kept the product. I resolved all outstanding issues and took 6 months to rebuild and reestablish. Out of 200+ clients over 3 years, all but a few have been fully satisfied. I stand behind my work and offer 100% satisfaction gaurantee.

I am back to work, and hope you will give me an opportunity to work with your design concepts.

Inspiration, Creation, and Quailty Restorations

There is more to life then money.....After a long career catering to special needs customers and constantly chasing the almighty dollar, I decided it was time to move on and do something enjoyable. Take the focus off money, reduce the stress, and live an enjoyable and rewarding life.

My passion since childhood is rescuing interesting pieces of history before they fall prey to today's "throw away" lifestyle. Call me a picker, a recycler, upcycler, preservationist, even Artist is acceptable, just don't call me a "junk man". I drive past an abandoned building and wonder about the story behind it, I see a well worn rocking chair and think about all the evening porch conversations it overheard. If I can save one piece of history, or preserve a unique objects story for the next generation, I feel accomplishment.

We are located in the heart of historic Chester County, PA and have access to unique items from center city Philadelphia to Amish land in Lancaster County. This broad spectrum allows us to find the best items from Industrial manufacturing pieces to Rustic Primitives.

All of our items are priced competitively and fairly based on age, rarity, and time spent on restoration and cleaning. Our product descriptions are well researched and accurate, our shipping is quick and the items are properly packaged.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments!
Thanks for visiting our shop and sharing our Interesting Americana
