A Gold Mine of Rusty Treasures

At some point we began to realize that all the 'stuff' accumulated over 100 years was getting out of hand. Then it occurred to us that other people may find some use for this 'stuff', so I decided to open this shop. It has been a sweet surprise what appeals to people. Like the rusty barbed wire that is forever in our way and very hard to dispose of. I've had a great time 'harvesting' this as well as bedsprings and the like for their new incarnations around the world.
My husband’s family homesteaded this piece of wilderness almost 50 years ago. Previously it had been a gold mine and a cattle ranch.
Their story has been chronicled in our book: Impossible Beyond This Point.
It is available at the website of the same name (see Related Links/Shop Website at right) or on Amazon in paperback and digital versions.
We still live here year ‘round, off the grid in our deep canyon home.

    I am thrilled to live in the beautiful Trinity Alps of California on an old gold mine with my wonderful husband. We have over a hundred years worth of rustic goodness just waiting for a new home.

I usually ship just once a week. We live in a deep canyon that requires a 2-mile uphill walk to our vehicles, then an hour's drive to the post office. So, as you can see, I don’t go out every day.

Shipping is by US Postal Service only. Unfortunately, I cannot ship overnight - our little Post Office is too remote and does not offer it.

Shipping confirmation and a tracking number will be provided on all shipments.

I am happy to ship internationally. My experience is that shipments often get delayed in customs, however, so just be aware. Import duties, customs, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges and are the buyer’s responsibility.
