Railroad Cart and Factory Cart Coffee Tables

I picked up this railroad luggage cart at a local flea market last week. These carts are hard ┬áto find as they were put through alot of use. This one is rustic and has a great patina. It is more narrow than a factory cart which i like for use as a coffee table but…thats me! This cart dates from the late 1800’s.

Next, I found a traditional factory cart – where I can’t say ;)! Its a great size and not as wide as some. It has been refinished and looks great! These carts date from the early 1900’s and were used for carting pieces of machinery from one place to another. They are heavy with iron wheels and are made of either pine or oak.

I have some other unique finds in the shop that I have posted on Facebook.

I appreciate everyone’s support the past two months in my new location!

Warm regards, Anne
