Didn't want to, but I needed to.
For my sanity, catch up, and a few other reasons...I've temporarily closed our Old Time Pickers shop.
So besides being on the road off and on, I'm on clean-up detail.
It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.
Most of the treasures we find for the shop have years worth of dirt and neglect.
That's what happens when they have been tossed in barns, basements, and sheds.
Now there are many shops out there that sell their items as is...dirt and all.
I can't do that! Not the way I want to do business.
So out comes the hose, bucket with Murphy Oil Soap, rags & brushes, and the good old sunshine.
DRYING IN THE SUN
Everything gets a quick scrub, fresh air, and sunshine.
They may not be perfect, but they are presentable and ready to be adopted!
All our clients are pleased with what they get. And this is what I get...broken and chipped nails, dirty hands, and grease under the fingernails that will not go away for days. Good trade off!
