Cartolina Retail - salvage day!

Years ago I posted here about an abandoned store in Greenwood - a town near here. I have been coveting the vintage store counters in that shop for so long! I contacted the lovely owner and, over the course of a few weeks, managed to convince her to part with them. So, off we went to Greenwood yesterday afternoon to pick up them up. It was so exciting to load the front counter on to the trailer and bring it back to the building. It took some wrestling to push it, on the dolly, down the sidewalk to the store, but we eventually got it there It's about 10ft long and has lots of cubbies on the reverse side. It's, well . . . . perfect for the store!

Can't wait to come see your shop! Nelson is so pretty and such a fun and interesting place to spend a warm day shopping. Sigh.

I used to live in Greenwood and eyed up those cabinets all the time!! Lucky you!
I think they were used in the movie Snow Falling on Cedars that was partly filmed in Greenwood.
Please give those lovelies my best regards.
