Treasure hunting...

Everyone once and awhile Tony and I will have the same day off during the week! These days are like gold....so of course we went in search of some treasures!


A friend and I actually found this antique/salvage yard the week before and I knew Tony would love it. Two barns, one large shed, and two lanes filled with stuff.....

The week before when Lauren and I visited, she referred to it as the original "Restoration Hardware" and there isn't any better way to describe it.

If you are looking for old doors, windows, shutters, hardware, and any thing old...this is the place to go...

Entering the door in the barns basement will lead you to a room filled with wood...barn wood...rows and rows of barn wood...

 It felt like a maze....

Shutters in every size and style imaginable...


The property is beautiful and Tony enjoyed talking with the owner about the pond and building a dock. Actually the owner and his wife were just the sweetest couple. They cherish history and this is there way of trying to preserve history and keep it alive.

We were hoping to find wood for the top of a farm house table, but couldn't find the right pieces.  We did manage to find some shutters to paint and new rope for the tire swing. There were many items I wanted to take home! I see another trip in our future!!

Don't you love when you find a new place to add to your treasure hunting map!

just found your blog while blog-hopping this afternoon... Ohhh, this place looks like so much fun! Do you mind me asking, what town it's in?
Your photos of it are awesome!
We haven't been up north since 2010. I think this summer it's about time!

A lot of wood work is done on the house and it needs a unique thinking to make it look good as it is looking now.
