A maul is a terrible thing to waste.

Please, can you help?

The shame of a repurposed maul. Please, can you help?

There is an antiques dealer near Pittsboro, NC that only opens the shop to retail customers occasionally. I have usually found out about these openings after the fact. I got lucky and made it into the shop.

They have a good assortment of primitive and mid-level antiques, nothing too fancy. Very affordable. Many unique pieces that I had never seen before with a nice assortment of workbenches, pie safes and dressers. I have developed a fascination with pie safe tins having noticed that there is an impressive array of tin designs. Almost like snowflakes.

Below are pictures of two of the benches. Click here to see the full set on Flickr.
