One December we were invited to an open house by a couple that makes, searches out, and collects all kinds of wonderful. This couple made a small farm table with benches for us because I wanted to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner on The Porch… The Porch is THE place at our house. We opened the door to their workshop and I locked on to the trolley. I hurried over to it with a sense of purpose and an air of ownership passing other peeps busy looking at this and that and nodded at Brenda… SOLD! Brenda, the collector of all things wonderful, told me it was an old Florsheim shoe trolley. They pushed the shoes all over the factory on trolleys like this one. St. Louis, Mo had a Florsheim shoe factory for years. I had been looking for a small work table for our kitchen and this little trolley called to me… spoke to me. It did. Really.
I asked Doug, Brenda’s husband and fixer upper and maker of all things wonderful… would he make a work top for the trolley with hinges so I could stash stuff underneath. And Doug did just that. I don’t do much WORK on it but the crock looks great there with the utensils and CH finds that very handy when he cooks.. 🙂 It also is the perfect place to hang the dish towel!
