I'd sure like to know more about the old tools. I've never seen the likes of some of them and I can't help but wonder what they were used for. What a charming shop!ReplyDelete
Hi Fred and Red! Aren't they great! You can read the descriptions of some of these tools at www.jonfoxantiques.com. Click on "Antiques for The Garden" and then on "Garden Tools." And, thanks for your comment!Delete
Yes, well my only question is why those terra cotta thumb pots were still sitting in the sales area and not at the checkout counter. I mean, I understand why you didn't buy an airplane seat for the loincloth statue. But surely you could've fit the thumb pots in your suitcase. I have a birthday coming up (sometime)...ReplyDelete
Ha! I think I was so preoccupied with plotting how I was gonna fit one of those twisty vines in the overhead compartment that I completely lost track of time. But luckily (for you, I guess) they do ship.Delete
