Yesterday James and I spent time hanging with Seth at his family owned architectural reclamation store, Aurora Mills. The shop is a magical place filled with antique architectural gems. It is a veritable goldmine for the restoration-minded. We stumbled upon a stockpile of berry bins from an old farm in Hubbard. Each bin came with individual veneer baskets, hand-stapled in the 60s and 70s by the farmer’s daughters. We left with new friends, a slice of Oregon’s rich farm history, resolution to the produce box dilemma, and are now one step closer to making this amazing dream a reality.
