When we lived in West Germany in the 70’s and 80’s we had many opportunities to find and then buy various antiques. One that has proven to have been a wise purchase over numerous family moves is this wooden hay wagon. One time it sat at the end of our driveway, holding potted flowers in the summer. Another time it sat on our deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, filled with collectibles we’d found during walks on the beach. Today, it’s well worn but still somewhat serviceable in SW Virginia. It’s protected under our back porch roof, and still holds some of those beach collectibles. Memories of my past.
