You’re looking in this direction, which means you’ve been to at least one flea market in your life. At least one antique shop sometime in the last decade. Close your eyes and think back to the staggering images of piles upon piles of knickknacks and thingamabobs. Pretty serious, I’d bet.
I see your piles and raise you hundreds upon hundreds of square feet. There are rooms filled to the brim housing just collectible door knobs. Rooms! Door knobs! Walk down the hallway and poke your head into any of the other rooms to have your mind completely blown by the sheer numbers. There are enough commonly sought-after and increasingly rare finds to keep you busy for days. I may or may not have gotten lost in the vintage faucet section. Yes, I know… A lot of stores have been replicating them as of late – and pretty much all else considered vintage today – but these have character. They were forged in an era during which things were built to last. If I’m going to spend money putting my own unique stamp on my house, it’s going to be of some real substance. As it turns out, there’s way more in store that’s even listed online. If you don’t find something you’re looking for online, the good (eh?) people at Olde Good Things are very happy to help you via their ASK A QUESTION link on each and every product. There’s almost zero chance of them not having it.

Our cast iron machine table legs are redesigned from original jewelry press legs made in America during the early 19th century. These legs are manufactured specifically to pair with our one of kind reclaimed wood table tops. Each leg has a top plate with four mounting holes for easy mounting, great for making your own industrial farm dining room table, coffee table or bench. There are five styles to choose from, two with a counter height option. Each leg is lacquered to prevent rust and gives the iron a blackened color. We offer metallic highlighting of the embossed lettering on the Brooklyn legs and the New York legs. We also offer custom coloring and distressed finishing. Please contact us for pricing on custom options.

If you are the proud owner of an Olde Good Things handcrafted dining room table or you own a farm table made of the woods listed in the video, you may have many questions on how to well maintain and clean your dining room table.
There are generally two types of finishes we use:
1. Conversion Varnish: We also refer to this as our lacquer finish. This finish is generally used for hardwoods such as: walnut, maple, mahogany, oak industrial flooring etc.
2. Oil / Varnish: This is three-part mixture which consists of marine varnish, tong oil and mineral spirits. We use this finish on our farm tables, which are made from reclaimed white pine and other pines as well as on our reclaimed oak.
These two finishes are both stain resistant and water resistant. In caring for your dining room tables, we suggest using a mild soap and water for everyday use. This will clean grease and stains etc. We recommend Guardsman, a spray furniture polish to bring back the luster in your table.
For the farm tables when scratched you can easily touch it up with a Minwax pencil stain sold at Home Depot. Use either dark or light depending on the color of your table. A provincial stain is usually good for our tables. Then wipe over with natural Danish Oil and wipe off to revitalize your table. This is also sold at Home Depot.
Olde Good Things Union Square is located in one of the most popular districts of Manhattan. A focal point for New Yorkers and city visitors alike, you are likely to see something unforgettable at any time of day in Union Square. You may be caught up in an impromptu body building class or spectacular street performance, or simply cool your heels while lounging around the Square much as Kerouac and the other Beat writers did years ago.
Over the years here at Olde Good Things, we mastered our unique silvering glass technique. All the glass we use is 80-100 years old. Get a glimpse on how our workers in the glass shop use this technique on a piece of reclaimed clear glass.
