ABOUT US... and the three frogs in the picture

We love our job!  Every "find" is a history lesson from someone else's life.  Sometimes it is humbling, sometimes it is funny, sometimes sad, but always, the thrill of the find is there.  The lesson learned is noted and retained.  We also take pride, like many others, that this job is the ultimate in recycling...recycling America's past, by offering, and passing on the treasure to you.  Every piece is special; every story is special.  And that's why we do this job.  We love the stories, we love the treasures. And to quote Robert Frost, "...Only where love and need are one, And the work is play for mortal stakes, Is the deed ever really done For Heaven's and the future's sakes." So, here we are; we hope you enjoy our store.

fallstonOUR FIRST STORE. We found this little storefront in Fallston, NC, and decided to try our hand at retail. It was a labor of love, but you know what they say?  Location, location, location! This was an adorable building, with the quaint storefront, curb appeal and full of wonderful McCoy Cookie Jars and other vintage items, but with all that cuteness it did not get the attention of the commuters who passed by daily, eyes forward, focused on some distant goal. Oh well, live and learn!

3frogspicABOUT THE THREE FROGS Many ask us how we got our name.  Well, one day I was sitting at my window, looking out upon the pond, which was surrounded by large rocks brought in from the woods around us.  I had a clay frog sitting on one of those rocks.  When I looked again, a real frog had hopped up beside it.  And yet again, the same thing happened, so at one time, there were "three frogs" sitting there.  When it came time to come up with a name for our business, the three frogs popped into my head, and the rest is history.
