Old photos of Stu and I as babies. Growing up this was a favorite train that traveled through the woods and over a lake. Stu is wearing shorts that his mom saved through the years and Otis now wears. Good memories.

Forestbound is a wonderful brand headed by Boston-based designer Alice Saunders. Alice uses exclusively found and salvaged textiles to create a line of durable, utilitarian tote bags. Each bag is extremely well-crafted and comprised of time worn historic fabrics and hardware that is sourced throughout New England. We are proud to be offering this line at Three Potato Four. The Forestbound line is a beautiful fit for our shop and really reflects much of what we love. A one-of -a-kind well-crafted gift for you or someone special.
Our Spring Barn Sale is just around the corner: April 21 + 22 . We have been collecting so much inventory for the event and thus traveling to some far out places to uncover finds. We recently returned from a trip that led us to a man who owned a former tobacco farm. His collections were housed in an old train depot station located on the property. He told us stories and let us peek into the old house he grew up in and the run down former general store that served the train depot. The most interesting buying trips are when we can meet folks like this and hear their stories – it makes what we buy for the shop that much more special and unique.
Love this photo that a customer took of his recent purchases from our Barn Sale. It is fun to see what people find and assemble from our shop. He has a great eye for type, check out his online shop Ugmonk based here in the Philadelphia area.
Thanks, Jeff for coming by!
It is not often that you can peruse and purchase items from a movie set. We are happy to promote and be a part of this pretty awesome sale. This warehouse located at the Philadelphia Navy Yard is filled with items from a recent Hollywood movie that was filmed right here in Philadelphia. (unfortunately, we cannot reveal the film because of a contract but you can guess when you go to the sale)
Make sure to be at this Huge Warehouse Sale on August 4 + 5 , 9am-5pm. The merchandise is varied, immense and quite unusual. Everything from antiques, textiles, farmhouse tables + bookcases, vases and vessels, statues, pottery and much more. Prices will be very affordable – with everything priced to move. More info about this sale here.
Hope you can make it out to this event!
I am so excited about this stylish new collection from our friends at Forage – a limited collection of Ladies Bow Ties. The patterns are stunning. At our past spring Barn Sale in March, we were lucky to have Shauna + Stephen set up a pop-up shop of their Forage Bow Ties.
We have a plaid bow tie from their spring collection that Stu and I have been sharing. I wore it to our Barn Sale and Stu wore it to a school dance he and Holly went to. Can’t wait to get my hand on these – I am loving the “Natalie” and of course the “Janet”.
