Industrial Chic


We found this little gem on Garden + Gun's website:

"Before mail-order furniture catalogs started selling reproductions of popular industrial relics—lab benches, warehouse lighting, metal worktables—John Norton of Industrial Age Antiques in Kannapolis, North Carolina, was scouring defunct Southern factories for the real thing. While the looms and other heavy machinery are usually sold to companies abroad, Norton’s mission is to preserve the smaller items that might otherwise end up in landfills.

His recent finds include a collection of furniture factory carts made by the Lineberry Company of North Wilksboro, North Carolina, and mercury glass apothecary bottles from a Virginia textile mill. The factory carts make great coffee tables, and the mercury glass bottles look beautiful on display. They’re also a reminder of the grit and spirit of those who put these items to work during the last century."


Well now. We've got you covered on the mercury glass apothecary bottles. We don't have a factory cart, but we do have a giant bellows and a big ol' dog box, either of which would achieve the same look. 
You know... the "I have something you don't have - and never will" look.

Relic's is having their 1st annual HUGE SALE!


We’re making room for a couple of buying trips, and everything in the store is going to be marked down 10-50%.
The hours are Thursday 5pm – 8, Friday + Saturday 10 - 5, and Sunday 12 – 4.
The sale is just in time for the Thomasville Antiques Show + Sale, which is also this weekend. One of the guest lecturers at the Show this year is P. Allen Smith, a renowned gardening expert. His work focuses on bringing nature inside, and expanding your living spaces outside. 

He uses a lot of rustic and re-purposed materials in his designs, and that’s just the sort of thing you’ll find here at Relic’s. You could make a window box from antique sewing machine drawers like these! 

And if you notice a lot of garden-type items at Relic’s, it’s because the owner is a Master Gardener – and you can be, too! The Thomas County Extension Service is offering a Master Gardener course – applications are due Feb. 25th, and it starts March 2nd. For more info, click here or call (229) 225-4130.
