here are a few reasons to consider buying old, instead of new:
//1// old things are usually better quality. nothing against ikea, but hand cut nails? and wooden benches made to last 200 years? just saying.
//2// environmentally friendly! instead of letting old things go to waste, why not repurpose? that old wagon wheel could sit at the bottom of a land fill.......orrrr it could be a statement piece at the end of your driveway.
//3// at the risk of sounding like a bad hgtv commercial, old things have so much character. the stained-glass windows, original hardware, and real oak doors are usually more unique than the typical builder-grade doors and cabinets.
