You’ll Never Guess What’s Hiding In Here…

Cleaning supplies, pet food, yummy snacks—our friends could never guess what’s hiding inside the antique dairy boxes pictured below. And that’s just the way we like it!

We picked up one on a trip to Maine earlier this year and used it as a place to store excess beer and soda we didn’t have room for in the fridge. It was an attractive addition to our kitchen and we liked being able to discretely stash some things right where we need them. But one box couldn’t hold everything we wanted, so we’ve been on the hunt for another.

We stopped by one of our favorite antique shops, Hodge Podge, on our way to a weekend at the farm in the Catskills. And wouldn’t you know it, they had one sitting right outside the front door!

Hodge Podge is full of other goodies too. We acquired quite a few of the antique wooden crates we used to make our wall unit there. I’ve also scored an iron desk lamp and several serving pieces, and Brian has added a few new gardening tools to his collection thanks to the always-changing inventory. In addition to a tightly packed store, there is an outdoor area that has everything from old road signs to awesome mid-century modern patio furniture that just needs a little love. Definitely stop by this place if you’re in the area.

  1. I keep telling all of my friends how much I want to acquire the skill of being able to shop at a flee market, eye down a piece of furniture (big or small) and be able to transform it into something new and pretty. I know you buy antiques and keep them the way they are — but I still don’t have an eye for that sort of thing either. I keep watching Lara Spencer’s HGTV show “I brake for yard sales” hoping to learn a few tricks of the trade… but no luck yet! Hopefully one day I’ll be inspired and figure out how to get started!
