Art & Collectibles

Look what I "saw" today at the Coop!

Beautiful hand painted saws.
These are all unique, completely one of a kind.
Very charming!

Longaberger Baskets!

Many of these maple wood splint beauties have the wood lid, the fabric liner, the plastic protector, even the tie ons! These pieces are not available everywhere. Some are retired, some were hostess only, some were Collector's Club. Don't miss out!

How is it that we have all this artwork and these unique collectibles?
We have unique dealers!

At any given time we have more than 150 different antique and collectible dealers here, hosting about 200 separate booths. While some of these dealers are professional antique-smiths, some are newbies. Some are restorers. Some are artists and some are collectors. We're lucky to have such a fascinating, diverse, and eclectic group of people here. Truly, there is something for everyone.

The artisan that paints the beautiful landscapes and imagery on the saws shares her work with the world here at the Coop. The Longaberger baskets are from the personal collection of another dealer; a collector who's decided to part with some of her treasures. What an awesome opportunity for you to get a retired basket for your own collection!

Keep in mind - not only can you come to Scranberry Coop and shop, you can come here to discuss having your own booth! Do you paint, make pottery, craft jewelry, or build bookcases? Have you been collecting some awesome collectibles that you're ready to part with? Maybe Scranberry Coop is the place for you!

It's not going to cost you anything to come visit us, and see. Grab a snack at the snackbar. Have a walk around our ten thousand square foot store. Look at the many diverse dealers, the many unique booths. And talk to us about what you think you'd like to sell in your very own space. Hey, it's a lot easier than opening up your own shop. Rent here is very reasonable, and you don't have to worry about all the overhead and stuff. Plus, we're already established with the best patrons anyone could ask for. We have lots of customers that come here expecting to see freshly stocked booths all the time. This might be the perfect launching pad for you.

What are you waiting for? Come on down to the Coop and check it out for yourself!

Remember decorating for a certain holiday when you were little? Waiting for dad to pull down the boxes from the attic, waiting for mom to open them up. Anticipating the reunion you'd have with that favorite little decoration, the one you got to put up yourself every year?

Remember that old wall phone with the twisted up cord, and the way you'd race for it when it rang?

Remember that rock glass that your dad always had his scotch in?

Remember that lamp in the corner of the living room, where your grandmother would sit for hours and sew, or knit, or bead fruit?

Remember that dresser at your very-best friend's house? The one where you'd put your stuff when you slept over? Remember the broken hinge, and the glass knob? Remember?

Remember the postcards you sent home from camp? Remember seeing them up on the old Frigidaire when you got home?

Remember the piggy bank you squirreled away your allowance in, so you could buy baseball cards and Pez?
Remember Pez? Remember hunting through the racks of them at Woolworths for your favorite characters? Popeye, Daffy Duck. A witch for Halloween? A bunny for Easter?

Remember the thermos you took to school every day filled with Campbells Tomato Soup - your favorite?

Remember the Matchbook cars you played with again and again and again?

Remember that exotic statue your uncle in the Air Force sent you, that you'd look at late at night as you'd drift off to sleep, thinking about far away lands and all the things you could be when you grew up?

Remember wearing your grandfather's tie clip to church on Sundays, paranoid you'd lose it and your butt would be red for weeks? Remember the pipe he smoked, that filled the halls with the smell of Cherry Blend?

Remember how he took you to your very first baseball game?

And remember his very special baked beans in that old bean crock with the brown lid?

Remember that canister in the kitchen where your brother's licorice was hidden underneath the teabags, so he wouldn't find it and eat it all? Remember that cookie jar your aunt brought all the way from Denver, filled with her home made raisin walnut cookies?

Remember that Fiestaware teacup your mom always used?

Remember lunchboxes?

And seltzer bottles?

And Charles' Chips?



So do we.

By The Rays

Took a walk and passed your house
Late last night.
All the shades were pulled and drawn
Way down tight.
From within a dim light cast
Two silhouettes on the shade
What a lovely couple they made

Put his arms around your waist
Held you tight.
Kisses I could almost taste
In the night.
Wondered why I'm not the guy
Whose silhouette's on the shade.
I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes

Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes...

Lost control and rang your bell
I was sore.
Let me in or else I'll beat
Down your door!
When two strangers who had been
Two silhouettes on the shade
Said to my shock:
"You're on the wrong block."

Rushed down to your house with wings
On my feet.
Loved you like I never loved
You, my sweet.
Vowed that you and I would be
Two silhouettes on the shade.
All of our days
Two silhouettes on the shade

Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes, Silhouettes...

Bring home a silhouette for the holidays, to that someone special in your life.

There's some beautiful furniture finds to be had at Scranberry Coop. Breakfronts, highboys, lowboys, rocking chairs, bookshelves, pie chests, hoosiers, cabinets, vanities, dinette sets, schoolhouse desks - you name it, we got it. 

Take a look at this beautiful dresser. Think about what you'd pay for a new dresser anywhere from IKEA or Pottery Barn. And you know nothing you find new is going to match the craftsmanship, style, and charm of this piece. 

Wouldn't this look great in your guest bedroom? Or how about with linens inside as a serving board in your dining room? Or better yet- right in your entryway as you come in the front door? Add a tray for your mail, a bowl for your keys and nice floral arrangement in a vintage vase and you've really got something. The drawers would be a great place to keep your mittens ;) 

Happy Holidays!
