Born in a barn? Not us! But we do love primatives and pickin' in old barns. Nothing better than spending time exploring a farm on a sunny Spring day in Creston. We didn't get a lot, but we did get some awesome barn doors!

"Antiques being mostly individual pieces with few exact duplicates, each collector must be his/her own sleuth. In fact, developing the ability to spot the genuine and detect the spurious is part of the fun of being a collector. If the surroundings where an interesting antique is found are not in keeping with its quality, so much the better."
- Thomas H. Ormsbee, "Care and Repair of Antiques"
Antiques are the ultimate in recycling. Today's throw-away world is filled with disposables and other products with very short life expectancies. Such consumption is not sustainable, using more resources and generating more waste than our planet can withstand. Waste reduction is becoming a greater priority for governments, business and individuals. In fact, more large companies are going green and proudly promoting their sustainable business and manufacturing processes. You too are helping to reduce waste and encourage recycling when you invest in antiques.
