Natural State Salvage  I see things for what they could become. Visit my Etsy shop-

I'm certain this Robert Plunkett guy is related to me- not only is his last name the same as mine, but he got a script for whiskey during prohibition. He gets me.

I see a lot of things, most I pass along with no sense of regret. This particular piece, however, I cannot bear to give up!! This is a coffin-shaped box that dispensed cigarettes in the 50's and 60's. When you wind the mechanism, the little skeleton rises up holding a cancer stick while Beethoven's "Death March" plays in the background. Easily one of my favorite finds in the last decade!! #iwannagetrealweirdwithit #funky #deathmarch #cigarette #cigaretteholder #favoritefinds #antiquesroadshow #unique #salvaged #oldshit #naturalstatesalvage #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyshop #etsy #imafanofit #coffin #death #macabre

I have a project list a literal mile long, but I finally got ONE thing knocked out today! This old light socket has been begging to be rewired, so today I brought it back to life. Now to find the perfect pulley for it to drape over... #naturalstatesalvage #oldshit #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyshop #etsy #leviton #repurposed #light #lighting #industrial #pendantlight #decor #todolist #checkitoff #diy

I'm still amazed by the old typesetters, as this line of nonsense took 6 minutes to set up! Look for it in the shop later today- link in my bio.

When those rusty, crusty objects turn into gems right before your eyes... hello, Henry Disston!

Scored a huge cache of matchbook covers- how many old phone numbers are inside? Any guesses?

Busy making coffee tables from salvaged Black Walnut- thank you, Fort Smith Rim and Bow Factory! The R&B went out of business last century but it still lives on through our goods. For sale now on Etsy!

Today, I ran out of coffee creamer. Don't let this travesty happen to you- this fun old creamer is now in the shop, begging to be a ray of sunshine in your kitchen! Grab it before it's gone- link in my bio.

The Ketcham Iron Company was founded in Fort Smith back in 1896. In the early 1900's, there were dozens of mom-and-pop founderies, all independently owned. All cast their names on items, hoping they would stand the test of time. All these founderies are now gone, and most of their names are forgotten. They've been, for the most part, recycled back into steel at other founderies, completing the circle. I found this old thing at an auction, and talked a guy out of taking it to the scrapyard. Long live the old cast names!! #ketcham #manholecover #castiron #inrustwetrust #iron #oldnames #ironworks #abandonded #salvaged #naturalstatesalvage #junkers #arkmophs #history

Someone had a good day at the auction... wooden carts and old pieces of the Rim and Bow factory (one of the oldest factories in Fort Smith, Arkansas, making wheels for wooden horse carts when this was the gateway to the Wild West) are coming up in the shop soon!
