All wooded smalls available in your choice of Red/Black, Tallow/Brown, Black/Mustard, Grubby Green/Red, Cyan/Salmon or Mustard/Brown. All pricing includes travel fare.

Aged Corner Shelf ~
This pleasingly modest corner hanging shelf is at home in any room, tucked quietly away in a softly lit corner beckoning you to yesteryear. Perfectly Aged Corner Shelf with two rusty repairs & rusty hanging wire, grungy- battery operated flicker taper candle, scented brush and a chunk of marbleized tar soap ($79.95). This shelf is shown here in our muted Red/Black with Tallow accents.

Early Wall Ledge ~
This little ledge has endless uses. We are offering this as a gathering with our hand rolled candle but you can use it in the kitchen or bathroom with a chunk of early soap & a brush, you can use it for a chunky candle and so on… Our Early Wall Ledge comes with rusty accents and Plum & Clove hand rolled flicker candle ($69.95). This Ledge is shown here in Black over Mustard.

Make-Do Candle Holder ~
This is a versatile Make-Do Candle Holder that has been bejeweled with rusty metal. Metals such as this would have been used to reflect precious light from the flickering candle & the pioneers would not have been able to afford pricey silver sconces, so they would have made-do with using scraps of wood & metal to fashion a useful shelf. We are pairing this one-of-a-kind design with our signature grubby (Cranberry Plum, Vermont Maple or Blue Willow Berries) candle & heavily scented rosehips ($54.95). This candle holder is shown here in Tallow over Brown.

Make-Do Wooden Milk Painted Candle Stand ~
The Early Settlers were quite ingenious & did not let anything go to waste! Fashioned after an antique candle holder that was “make-do” by using an old Butter Paddle & a block of wood, Our Make-Do Wooden Milk Painted Candle Stand is a nod to our pioneer roots. This gathering includes a drab, grubby battery operated 2 x 3 flicker candle (Scentennial House) & hanging taper candles wrapped in our aged original M & M Dry Goodes label & grungy cheesecloth ($85.00). Candle Stand shown here in Cyan over Salmon, flicker candle & tapers are heavily scented with Scentennial House (our signature scent).

Soap Box Gathering ~
Our Soap Box Gathering offering is a complete primitive vignette for your home! Our Soap Box Gathering includes reproduction wooden milk painted box (in Grubby Green over Red) with a rusty repair & wirework, a generous chunk of marbleized tar soap, scented aged brushes, room spray (Scent?), a generous slice of stained cheesecloth (which would be perfect for an early window accent or a table runner!) & a large tattered & stained hand cloth ($129.00).

Primitive Spice Shelf & Jars ~
Simple goodes are often most beloved because they reflect the purity of our past. Our Primitive Spice Shelf milk painted in our aged Mustard over Brown with glass jars with M&M Dry Goodes grungy labels with good ol’ fashioned muslin & twine lids. The jars are each filled with wonderfully scented Cinnamon sticks, Bay leaves, dried Orange Peels & Cloves (not edible- display only). The jars themselves are food-safe, so you can order unfilled jars to put your spices in ($115.00 for the set of 4 jars, fillers in jars & spice rack.

You can also purchase additional sets of Spice Jars (4 unfilled) = $24.95. Please email us to tell us what spice/food name you want written on your labels.
