You Just Never Know

"Hey, Mama, look! A sale! You just never know what you are going to find." Whenever my son would say this from his car seat, I would have to smile. How many times had he heard this coming from the front seat? The thrill of the hunt is what drives a lot of people in this business. You just never know what's going to turn up.

Case in point: two of our favorite Chicago customers, Bill and Janet McCarthy, found this wonderful Montgomery Hawthorne messenger bike at a local estate sale that they happened upon one weekend while headed somewhere else.

Look at the wonderful details -- heart-shaped gears and leather seat included. Very steampunk! Can't you just see the original rider, tearing down a country road with goggles on and coat tails flapping? Awesome.

What about your favorite find? Tell us about it or better yet, send some photos. We'd love to share! Until then, we sure to check our Facebook page over the weekend (just search Rhubarb Reign Inc) for photos of our latest finds. xo
