So my lovely MIL, Mary Ellen, gave me a generous gift certificate to my favorite antique store on the coast, Yankee Trader. I had so much fun shopping, even though the store wasn't open very much while I was there because the owner was helping her dd with the Fair that was going on, so she had to close her shop quite a few days while we were there.
The locker baskets were a must-have, who can't use those for storage. The file box was an interesting find. I've seen them before in thrift stores but this one felt heavy. Upon further investigation, I saw the file dividers inside, which make me think this must have once belonged in a sheriff's/police office one day.Just look at some of these interesting file dividers...."explosives", "glass broken"..huh?"Family Troubles", "Dogs Vicious",
The copper bin on the bottom is something we've wanted for a long time, to put ice in and serve drinks, or wood in the winter......love all of these things!
Thanks Mary Ellen for the lovely gifts!!
