Jennifer Goode, Kansas City, MO, US

My husband and I love to treasure hunt when we are doing storm damage recovery in other cities and turn our finds into stuff! So, you will find a variety of vintage and antique items.

Also, We have a shop where we sell beautiful hardwoods if you are local and prefer to pick an item up. We can also deliver and have large trucks for larger items.

Re: Drawer-A-Holic

HaHa. My brother and I used to roll from one end of the station wagon to the other when my mom would suddenly see a garage sale sign. We swore we wouldn't be that person. LOL your that person too! Isn't it great.

Re: "Coffee And My Secret Ingredient" -CoffeeTime Lamp

How Fun! I have been wanting to tackle putting together a lamp, but it's cold and I like looking at yours. Thanks for sharing, Jennifer

Re: A Chippy Welcome...

I LOVE This! How fun. Aren't these baskets used for growing hanging tomatoes or strawberry's? This is even Sweeter than hanging strawberry's.

Re: Window

I have some windows staring at me. thanks for the inspiration. I am lucky to have a shop to create in because we needed an office for our tree service, but my desk and computer don't take up much room so the rest of the 1800's bank building is for much more fun things than billing. My neighbor shopped for antiques and finds when dealing with grief and now she has 2 barns full. We work together to clear them out and resell some stuff to put the money in a scholarship fund in her sons name. She says the cleaning out makes her hubby happy and I know the purpose makes them both happy. Your post just made me ramble a bit.... sorry, Great window project.

Re: Repurposed Antiques goes to Market

Re: Old Lock Paperweight or Fun Home Decor

No Voc will not stay on the earth and polute forever. The varnish I use is non toxic and very durable, but It wont add toxic chemicals when it decomposes when we are long gone.
