It’s not that our basement was filled with junk when we moved in; quite the opposite, really, but we’re still just discovering things that were left on the shelves like extra blueprints and shiny new door hinges, pencil notes on the beams, and a whole bunch of the kitchen and bathroom cabinet knobs stuck in a box, brand new, in original 1950s packaging.
Little treasures that help us understand the past are the best.
Pretty awesome find for me, maybe not for you. I spent a lot of time getting to know those knobs when I painted the kitchen cabinets last summer and cleaned them one by one, and it’s nice to know where they’re actually from in case I ever need to source more. The pricing on ebay for this and similar products runneth all over the place, and as far as I can tell on the website, the closest product match is a pretty round knob from the line named “Allison.” There’s nothing quite like the original, though.
