Rejuvenation, Grand Ave. Portland OR

Rejuvenation is best known for their incredible selection of antique lighting fixtures and household hardware. If you're the kind of person who gets excited about vintage knobs, it's an excellent place to while away a cloudy afternoon. The back lot is always full of neat old stuff. Those stone lions make me think of The Haunting (the original 1960 version, of course). Wouldn't they look wonderful with some cobwebs?
 I'm doubtful about what these cabinets were once used for. They don't look like card catalogs. Seeds, maybe? What I do know is that I'm completely in love with them. Maybe it's my inner apothecarian, but I adore anything with lots and lots of tiny drawers.

The tubs all have amusing names. The one on the right is called "Basket of Kittens".
