I know a common theme of my posts is about how fast time if passing. Yesterday my daughter turned 20. I will never forget when I was 17 and my own mother told me how fast time will fly when I am a parent. Her words are so true. And at Blue Caboose Station things are moving at a little brisker pace. More trunks have been listed in our Etsy shop, among them a gorgeous brass button Civil War Era flat top. This trunk is unusual in that it is extremely heavy and the leather handles are something in my 25 years of trunking, I have never seen.
Bruce is finishing up the dragline cases. He took an original double case and split it in two. He refinished the wood cabinets and wowza, they look terrific. We wanted to be able to ship them more economically, and so decided to do the split. They will be added to the Etsy site soon.
Yesterday we came home from a picker’s dream – a Model A car enthusiast and his collection of signs, car memorabilia, antique furniture, and so many cool things. Due to the fact we did not win Powerball or Megamillions, we stuck within our budget and came home with a small trunk, some Ford Shirts, cast iron door stops, and a very cool extra large brass boxing bell. Coming soon to the shop.
Enjoy the last days of January and our hope is you and yours are staying healthy during this pandemic. Days are getting longer, nights are lighter, things will begin to get better.
