SIMPLICITY means STRAIGHTFORWARD. The cast iron ice fishing saw found by Selective Salvage in the upper Midwest dates to the early 1900’s. Practical and functional, the saw’s purpose was simple – to bring home dinner.
SIMPLICITY means UNCOMPLICATED. AtticAndBarnTreasure’s vintage cast iron candle holder is a nice example of a simple but elegant addition to your tabletop.
SIMPLICITY means INGENUOUSNESS. GirlPicker’s salvaged hoe blade would look great in a garden or as rustic wall decor. Simple and graphic always works.
SIMPLICITY means EFFICIENCY. ThirdShiftVintage’s “Kodak Hawkeye” folding camera was the model of efficiency in 1924. While not great for taking selfies today, it will serve as a wonderful decorative piece in a contemporary home.
