We've been looking for an industrial cart for awhile to use on our screened-in back porch as a coffee table. But, we knew that we would NOT be paying $1200.00 for one like we saw a couple of weeks ago at an antique mall in Colorado Springs.
I was excited when Bob came home from a local yard sale with this one -- it's not as fancy as the $1200.00 one; but still a pretty neat specimen. AND, IT ONLY COST $20.00 - YES, TWENTY DOLLARS!
It has big, heavy industrial wheels and was manufactured by the Nutting Truck and Caster Company in Faribault, Minnesota.
It also has the two brackets for placement of poles for guidance.
There is evidence of both blue and green paint from sometime in its past. The yard sale person thought that it had been used in a creamery.
It's now retired and its only job is to hold my begonias and to satisfy my urge for some industrial chic. Love it!!
