New Vintage Hardware at Etsy

Hello everyone, yes I know it's been awhile. I am the saddest blogger ever. Thanks to all who have stuck with me.

But in other news, I've added and will be adding some more vintage hardware to my etsy store, Vyeshi.

I mostly have cabinet pulls or escutcheons. Lots of artists use these for altered art or assemblage art. Or possibly just need a unique touch for their furniture.

It's a great way to stay green and recycle items that would normally go to the landfill.

My husband is a carpenter as is his father. They often remodel kitchens and replace cabinets and hardware. Fortunately my FIL is a hoarder and physically cannot throw away anything. We found all sorts of dusty goodies laying around his shop. We asked if we could have them...he said "Of course! What am I going to do with them?"

Which naturally leads to the question "why did you keep them in the first place???" Oh well. We don't go there.

So his hoarding is everyone's gain. 40 years worth of reclaimed hardware. Find it in my Etsy store, Vyeshi or in my husband's Bonanzle booth, Salvage Hardware.

Ah so lucky... those finds look awesome and I can imagine so many pieces of art and work that can come from those.
