Meet Roger. He is holding the door that I "rescued" from
RESCUED RELICS in Montgomery, AL.(Before Pic)
Look at the cute little signs that they place on the items that you purchase, but have to return to pick up. Took me 4 months to actually rescue & remove the door from its premises!
This is the After door! I scrubbed it with soap and H20...then I sanded it...then put a light stain on it to give it that more aged appearance (not that it didn't already look old)...then I attached my HOLSUM BREAD door pull & ad sign on it...I left the screen as is with its little tears & rips...
Found this door pull at River Chics in Vicksburg, MS
My Daddy salvaged this sign many years ago from a store that he serviced when it closed down in Tallulah, LA.
Daddy worked for Holsum Bread for 38 years.
The door sits in the corner of my studio. Not sure if I will use it to hang things on or not...Right now just enjoying a piece of history. I collect Holsum Bread items. That will be for another post, BUT if you come across anything, please let me know...The Southern Holsum Bread was owned by Bill Cotton Sr., that is where Cotton's Holsum Bread originated; however I am a collector of all HOLSUM BREAD items.
This picture was taken 15 years ago when my Dad was still a "bread man." Prince Logan was a little over 2 years old. He loved to ride in that truck and always bribed his Papa out of a honey bun. The delivery truck's aroma also brings back fond memories. Daddy is gone now, but his memory lives on...
STAY CALM & SLAM A SCREEN DOOR!
