New Items...Turkish Jugs & French Bottle Drying Rack

 It's a new year and time for a fresh look at the shop. New fun and interesting items are arriving...love these great old turkish jugs displayed on this table, french bottle drying rack, and great large bread boards...
Collected from all over Turkey these terracotta jars were used for storage of olives, oils, and grains, and were traditionally buried to preserve their contents in colder temperatures. Glazing colors traditionally range from green to amber. Each jar is vintage and bears individual marks of use and history. A standby for us they are great to add texture and interest to your home and always beautiful stuffed with wild and wooly branches or blooming blossoms.
Our lovely and durable Tiered French Glass Drying Rack is great for drying, storing, and displaying an assortment of mugs or glasses on your kitchen island or buffet. These are always appealing whether they display your favorite coffee mugs and kitchen aprons to holding twine and garden tools in a potting shed. Love the idea of setting a bottle drying rack at the center of a beverage center for a party for your guest...Below are a few inspiring photos we found in case you wonder what in the world to do with one of these great pieces!
