One of the fun things about working vendor markets is shopping the other booths. You very rarely ever have the time! But my neighbor @rusticretailmarket was so close I had to meander through it over and over since my tent was tethered to his steel work tables! I picked up some industrial pieces from Joe @the_resale_revolution including the rustic nail barrel. It has that twisted wire and rough wood aged to perfection. I’m resisting the urge to take it apart and make signs from the sweet staves!! But for now it’s a vase to hold a bouquet of some of my collected yardsticks, all different, some square, flat, bent or beveled and mostly local like the Sussex County Battery Station where my departed brother Chris worked as a mechanic, best carburetor guy in the area he was! The nail apron from B.D.Simmons in Franklin NJ holds it all together!
