    Omigosh, look anywhere and everywhere. Check junk stores, thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales, even antique stores. And of course Habitat for Humanity Restore. I'd go online as a last resort, but failing everything else try https://www.shopgoodwill.com Etsy and eBay, as well. (eBay once would have been my first choice but I've found that bargains aren't as prevalent there as they once were. JMHO.) Good luck hunting.

    Are you able to take a road trip and go up into Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois? I've found that almost every small town has some kind of antique store and they're reasonably priced. Maybe you could make a vacation out of it and visit historic sites along the way. Happy hunting!

    Our small communities have Town Wide Yard Sales. Put on your comfy shoes and drive back on those long driveways. Wonderful finds. Many of the families can direct you to other good sales. Even if you don't live out here, look up the dates.

    I have a lot of old farmhouse kitchen items I bought on eBay. Salvation Army and Goodwill are also good places to look. You can also place a "wanted" ad or look in the "for sale" items in newspapers.

    Go to flea markets in your area. Especially ones that are away from big cities. Also auctions near small towns. Thrift stores are great also.

    Estate sales, Craigslist, Ebay are all great places to start looking. Do a google search on Pie Safe and you'll see a ton of things come up. Antique stores are another great resources.


  • Best place to look at antique fairs and shows if you go in and Google antique fairs and shows in your area it'll tell you when they're going to be they should be coming up spring is around the corner those are the best places to go we go to one here in Texas at Roundtop in the spring and in the fall and find tons of really great items.

    Magnolia farms .com Everybody has seen chip and Joanna. And for the sink I would try faucets direct. Then antique shops every where also for hardware try putting in antique pulls in your search bar there are several web sites. Restorations.com (vandykes) is great.
