Old, Obsolete Or Overlooked

Many items reside quietly in garages and gardens, on shelves, in lofts, under hedgerows, hidden away in the forgotten nooks and corners where they were once tucked away to remain safe for a next use that never arrived.

Antique shops are full of these estate and barn finds, waiting to begin again in another garage or home. They can be put to their original use or more often to an entirely new purpose as an item aged into a form of art.

  1. A very good subject to discuss. Sometimes we throw away perfectly good items, because they are oldfashioned and we want to have a beautiful modern one instead. I use my things until they fall apart.
    Thanks for taking part in this me.
