Perhaps being a sentimental fool is what got me started with my love for old things. As a child, I remember watching my grandmother make her famous tea cakes with a set of cookie cutters make from old cans. She used an old Watt bowl to mix the dough and a red handled sifter for the flour. She always wore an apron to protect her dress. Thus it began. Yes, I have those cookie cutters and the aprons, but unfortunately not the bowl! When I find a piece of similar likeness, I think of her and want to share my memories with others. That is what vintage is all about, seeing something that sparks a happy memory and desiring to have that item for your own.
Dixie Picks is all about honoring the things of the past. Jim and I enjoy finding items that have a history; how was it used, was it loved, was it necessary for everyday life.
We delight in the beauty of items that are from a different era and finding a modern day use for them.
If it’s rusty, then we will probably like it! Mostly, we just love old things! Take a look at some of the beauties we have picked in the past, <HERE>. Come in to Rusted and check us out. Hopefully, we will have something just for you!
