All of us, who love old things, are kindred spirits. That is the common thread that helps us understand each other. When you come into The Plum Tree and speak of your love of old things and how you want to decorate your home with these things, we know what you mean.
The objects that Cindy and I surround ourselves with are gentle reminders of the past and we love them. When you enter our door we know that you love them too. I've found that as time passes, slowly but surely, I am replacing items in my home with the worn, old, antique items with character. That is what we both love, the character. Any new piece of furniture can have a perfect, flawless finish. But these old pieces of furniture, where the edges are rounded with wear, a handmade latch may have been added or paint may be missing in a certain area . . . it makes you wonder, "where has this been in the past? Who may have used it in their home such a long time ago?"
Wonderful character. Every old thing has a story ~ we may not know the story, but we can imagine it and appreciate it.
We hope to see you soon at The Plum Tree . . .
