Vintage Finder?s Warehouse has 'things worth repeating?
Dean Castellano said a lot of customers have been buying small antique pieces, like nuts and bolts, for DIY craft projects. He said he has been taking apart antique items and laying them out, like in the photo above, so he can individually sell smaller parts to customers. Items are stacked from wall-to-wall in the warehouse the Castellanos have outgrown, and the couple said they plan on renting out the warehouse next door soon to add more collections.
