    Have you tried antique stores? Many have lots of this type items around my area. I have found that they have an outside area especially with items many people use in their yards but after cleaning and painting put them inside too.

      I have tried EVERYWHERE. Even when travelling, if I eye spy a locale that I hope may have something, we turn off and search. To this day, still no luck. Will make sure I make a stop in TN next time we are in that area. Thanks for helping.

  • Salvage yards or antique stores. Or, if you have the budget, just have custom made. There are many decorative iron workers / welders out there and are easy to find. Provide them a photo, and exact dimensions and they can make for you.

    • I understand completely! A found vintage piece is always a great way to go. Just constantly make the rounds of local antique and salvage yards. Maybe if you turn up enough, they can find a piece for you?

      Thank you so much. WV is not too far to drive for what I want. My husband goes to the eye doctor in WV. It is doable.

    That is a beautiful piece! Many iron workers have their wares for sale at local places, like antique shops and flea markets. You might want to check there and see if you could get the artist's contact information to commission a piece. Best of luck!

      NE is not out of the question. We rescued a dog from NE, why not rescue iron work. Yes, my husband thinks I am crazy, but knows when I am on a mission to stand back. Thank you.

    There is no picture of the kind of piece you want . . . only that it is iron.

    I'd rather come to NE to rescue a dog, but hey, we do have some awesome iron workers! There is a local guy that sells things he makes at Park Ave Antiques. Their number is 402-721-1157. I'm not sure what all he does, but if he doesn't have what you are looking for, maybe you could commission it. I can't imagine it would be too incredibly expensive, since its mostly bending the iron, and some tack welding

      Agree, far more important to give a loving home to a lost soul/ animal in need. I should bundle a trip and get one of each. We already have have two bouncing around . . . 160+ btwn the two. Would not trade them for the world. Thank you for the contact info. Worth a shot. My husband always wants to take a road trip.
