Finds: Antique Boot-Scraper
On a day trip to Millbrook, NY I found this gem at a great antique spot. You could spend hours in this place, everything from hardware to records to windows and doors to great ironwork. My parents have an iron boot scraper like this and have always wanted one. Well this one is the real deal. The owner told me it was from the 1800s- this style is pretty unique because it has a tray around it to catch the mud.
This is the front of the shop (I will be back, they have a door knocker that must be mine!)
