~ American Pickers ~

Awhile back my hubby took me to this place in Springfield that had tons of old barn wood, old windows, doors and the list goes on.  Well, awhile back I decided to head back over there and look around while my Mom was with me.  I forget the name of the place, but they said that they were in the process of changing the name again.  Anyway, it so reminds me of a smaller version of American Pickers.  If you are looking for some old stuff for your home then you are definitely in luck.  Let’s take a look.  Here is a picture of the front of the building.  The front of this place is normally loaded with anything and everything wood.  Looking for something made out of wood then you will find it here.

Did you see all the old windows and doors?  What about all that barn wood and did you see all of the old chicken coups piled on top of one another?   I just couldn’t believe how much more stuff they had behind the store.  Tons and Tons of stuff!!  Here are a few pics that I took while inside.  Just imagine some of these old doors inside an old farmhouse.  Yep, I just need the money and the house and I think I could get started with refurbishing one – how about you?!?

 There were tons of these.  The gentleman that helped us said that he got them out of an old theatre and that someone had already purchased each and everyone of them for $40.00 each.  I thought they were neat, but I would have no idea what I would do with one (lol).

Here are a few more pics of a close up of the porch area.

I ended up leaving with an old barn door, some old glass jug jars that I bought for $1.00 each, a Clabber Girl tin, 2 old lanterns and a rusty old can.  My hubby asked me what I was going to do with an old rusty can, but I couldn’t really answer him.  I think I will work on that as the weather gets warmer so be watching for more posts.  Here are the pics of my new items.

Gotta love old and rusty things!!  For all of those items…… I only ended up spending $13.92.  Pretty good deals don’t ya think?

Well, I better go for now.  Keep checking back frequently because I just recently checked out a new shop and can’t wait to show you my new purchases.  Blessings to you all.

Hugs, Lisa

Hi Lisa...what a wonderful looking place - looks like you could re-make an entire home from what he has there.

Thanks for the fun tour.
