Thrift Shop and Salvage Shop Finds

Katie and I spent much of the day, driving around Lancaster County, PA.  We found three new thrift shops in Ephrata alone!  And a remarkable salvage shop in New Holland.  All of the old clock work pieces, the folk art carved wood bird, the metal hardware, and the vintage leather straps were found at "Carson's in the Cornfield."  A great shop full of salvaged hardware, wood trims, spindles, and hand painted folk art.  All at reasonable prices.
 The owner has dozens of bins of vintage hinges, screws, door plates, skeleton keys, odds and ends.  It is one of the WOW shops you walk through and just can't get enough of! 
Three floors... including the basement which is full of wood door panels, shutters, trims, on and on.  If you're in the area... you need to visit Carson's on Grist Mill Road!  
And the lovely old 13 x 15 walnut frame that everything is sitting on... we found at a roadside shop, and it was marked $3.50!  When I went to pay for it, the shop keeper said; "No, it's on sale, and is only one dollar!" I'm still smiling about that one!
