About

The love of old items

We started our shop Dirt Road Treasures featuring Michaels Menagerie in May of 2013.
After the death of my brother in law to cancer, we decided we needed to do something we enjoyed to do that we could involve the whole family in to honor him. My Brother Tracy loved Michaels Menagerie and he loved to go picking. My fondest memories are of the fun we had going on weekend picks when we visited each other. When it became eminent that his passing would be a reality, in his jovial way he purchased his own urn(he wanted Michael to make one but he couldnt make it sealed to hold the ashes) he picked an angel looking very sad. He then asked us did we know why the angel was so sad? He told us the angel was sad that their were no yard sales on Sunday! In his will he asked that he reside with different family members and that when they had him they took him picking with them!! His wishes have been honored and it gave birth to our dream of doing what we love. Our shop started as a 500 square foot store and last year we moved to a 11,000 square foot store. We feature Michaels creations as well as antique and vintage items. We love rescuing old finds and restoring them back to life. Our sons run the store and we do the picking and restoring. I hope that one day this venture will support my wife and I so we can do it full time instead of nights and weekends.
