Grand Opening!

Yay!  It's finally here!  I am so excited to present to you my very own online shop.  Here is where I will pass along my vintage treasures.  They are all near and dear, but because I am constantly redecorating and moving things around and don't have room for everything, it is time they find new homes!  You never know what you could find... vintage linens, quilts, French wares, ironstone, seasonal, collectibles and decorative pieces so please always keep one eye on the shop!  I think I finally figured through most of the details, but we will learn as we go.  All new shop items will be presented right here in updated blog posts at rusty hinge blog (a separate shop website is currently under construction!)  If you see something that you must have for your very own, inbox me with your shipping address to mgmarcusse@gmail.com.  I will then send you a Paypal invoice with an updated shipping cost.  First email takes it, so be quick!  Note:  All shipping prices are exact and will include delivery confirmation and shipping insurance.  I will combine shipping of multiple items for savings and will also ship internationally.  Now that we have finished with the boring details, I will now go ahead and cut the ribbon!  Happy shopping!  






   Vintage Victorian ironstone wash basin with Iowa stamped beneath.  Notice the delightful patina and aged appearance.  Perfect for corralling rolled towels in the bath.  It measures 15" wide and 4 1/2" tall.  
Price~ SOLD.






Straight from France!  This adorable antique twisted wire basket is in wonderful vintage condition without any broken wires and with just a touch of rust.  It measures 8" wide and 2 1/2" tall.  
Price~ $35.00.  SALE~ $30.00!






This vintage breadboard is from England.  It shows some old knife markings and signs of use.  It measures 9 1/2" wide. 
Price~ SOLD.






An adorable little confit pot with original lid straight from France.  I love, love and collect all French pottery!  This one has the number 4 stamped on the lid.  These pots were most likely used for food storage in the kitchen or pantry.  It measures 3 3/4" tall and 3" wide. 
Price~ SOLD.




Yellow trug with bent wooden handle.  I am not sure of the age of this trug, but I used it in my bath to store wash clothes and soap bars.  It is the perfect size for a half bath.  It measures 16 1/2" long, 10 3/4" wide, and 4 1/4" tall (without handle.)
Price~ SOLD.






Highly collectible and authentic this vintage cardboard egg advertising sign was used in a general store to price the eggs. It is in excellent vintage condition with no tears.  You can see the rotating wheels in the back that spin for a price change on the eggs.  Imagine only paying 20 cents for a dozen!  It measures 12" wide and 18" tall.
Price~ SOLD.






This vintage wooden general store seed display is the perfect piece to add to your Spring decor.  I displayed this on my garden potting bench.  It will come along with ten vintage seed label packets.  It measures 24 1/2" wide and 18 1/2" tall.  
Price~ SOLD








A vintage-style metal gate that I used for a message and photo board.  I added miniature metal clips that are included.  Measures 20" wide and 31 1/2" tall.  
Price~ SOLD.





A completely hand sewn feedsack quilt in the double-wedding-ring pattern.  These complimentary pastel pinks and blues are splendid for adding a touch of shabby chic to any decor.  It measures 79" by 79".  
Price~ SOLD.  




One of my favorite items for sale is this vintage European dough board.  I love decorating with these old boards as they make wonderful centerpieces and serving boards on the kitchen table.  This one is quite large measuring 23 3/4" wide.  
Price~ $165.00.  SALE~ $145.00!




See in these photos how I have previously used these dough boards?  They look great displayed everywhere...on the kitchen table, propped on the counter top,  and even hung upon the wall.  They are great for collecting as well!   




Well, I have to end here for now, but don't worry this is only the beginning and there will be much more listed soon so please come back again!
