I have always been a collector of vintage items, using them to decorate my house. I collect old fishing items, mainly minnow buckets with advertising, old watering cans, cans and bottles with advertising and the old red-handled utensils. When it comes to furniture, I prefer old pieces, which I give a new life, that is where my small business came from, 2 Sisters Vintage - Giving New Life to Old Things.

When I am not looking for junk finds at garage sales, in yards for the trash man to pick up, or at auctions, Im the librarian at the high school. I also enjoy metal working and gardening.

I will have to use "hill top table" on the price tag. I like your birdhouses.
