The shops of Carver have so many cool pieces this month that it will take two posts to do them justice. For Part 1, the focus is on vintage pieces in their natural state. This includes beautiful antique desks like those pictured at The Nature of It and The Good Junk Garage as well as the old cabinet where the exterior is stained wood at Farm Girl Junk. Signs are plentiful at Carver shops – both old ones like the East Side Little School at Ms. Mac’s Too and old wood with metal cutouts like those found at Farm Girl Junk. Carver Junk Company combines old wood with paint as seen in the desk, chair and bookcase below. The shops of Carver are open Friday and Saturday 10 to 4 and on Sunday afternoon. Happy saling!
