We can help if your suffering from "gardenitis" at the vintage whites market

Preparing for Vintage white market...weathered patina vintage projects (just a few). Bedsprings have been cut in half, now TWO people can enjoy owning them!

Clamps...oh my, my husband is an overachiever when I say something needs glued...out come the gigantic clamps for just the littlest piece to be fixed! Three wheel cart oozes with patina, all original colors.

Are you amazed at the trellis with real vines...I mean, how could we cut them out, it would be just wrong!

If you have vintage "garden-itis"...we can cure that when you shop our Pic-patina booth at Vintage whites March 8th. Promise there is SO MUCH MORE...just don't want to spoil it by showing too much.

Please take your SEAT

Pic your SEATing...
Did you go to Clearfield High?
These seats were in the auditorium from the beginning.
Not sure when they were removed.
Speaking of removed...they were from back in the day when you could chew bubblegum and stick it under the seats...uh huh...Carl removed loads of old hardened bubblegum, layers of dust and grime, shined them up with beeswax and orange oil and now they look like THIS! ( I always wish I had taken before photo's, but he's just so quick to fix things up).

The first two photo's are the same seats of 5 in a row, one on the end written in white original paint says "usher".  The  next two photo's are another grouping of 4 seats. NOW...these seats come apart, I think in groups of two or they ALL connect into one large row.

The last two photo's are the backs, nice metal hardware, seats fold up and they are sturdy. No breakage, nice patina and a little chippy on a few.

We have another grouping of 5 which have not been refinished up quite yet.

I just really want to take them to the vintage whites event, but if someone just had to have a grouping you can contact us @ justabedofroses@hotmail.com

we are working a pricing...

for now the group of 4 are 250.00 and the group of 5 are 300.00

What a treasure...we have been going to buy these from a guy for 2 years and finally did it (as you see we are enjoying our retirement time, if you like all work and no play!)

Will be sharing an antique dental cabinet next up for sale, all original, it's just beyond charming. So please check back.

(I'll also get some measurements on these chairs).

The shop here at home is NOT opened this weekend.

pic PATINA STYLE...is there anything else???

Patina...that's what you'll find and you'll want to pick@ our
Pic-Patina space Vintage whites Market March 8th 10:00 grand ball room Utah state fairgrounds.

I'm going to be very guarded about our patina style space...it's time worn, re-purposed, re-painted, beautiful items you'll want to enjoy in your life---with a past.

You know our style and we know yours...and that's why we are so excited for this event to get here quickly (well, no, we need some warmer weather to finish up some of our projects).

I'll post a peek (not going overboard because we want it to be a complete suprise) by the end of this week.

I know there will be a tea party going on and a class taught on lighted signs
so plan on spending the day. There will be a moving company there to help you to your truck
with your PATINA FINDS. Bring a husband if you really want to load up. As soon as I know where
our booth is, it will be announced here.
