Here are a few photos, several new cabinets. It has been two months since we have been to Alameda, I have been stocking up. We will have a huge variety of smalls from an large estate pick in Stockton, Ca. Antique bottles, canning jars, architectural elements, wood boxes,
wire baskets, trunks, etc. Many many unusual antique items. This will be our last Alameda show until October. I will still post regularly new items in our inventory. Should be beautiful weather, come out early for best selection.

This blogs purpose is to introduce Bryan Appleton Designs to the internet community. I am a carpenter, artist, father, and an outdoor adventure enthusiast. I love to create furniture and other objects from relics gathered at flea markets, jobsite dumpsters, the local dump, you name it! These relics include antique victorian hardware, architectural elements from old houses, unique and interesting bits of painted wood, iron, and glass. Most of what I make is functional- a cabinet, hat rack, mirror, etc. Some things just sit there and look interesting. It is my passion, and I call it art! When I am not creating, I can be found hunting the local flea markets, scrounging thru dumpsters in Pacific Heights, or at play on my mountain bike or skiing in the Sierra's.
