This 1950’s Coke machine is from an old restaurant in Encino, Texas. After the restaurant ceased operations, Raul Falcon embarked on a restoration project for the machine, and it now finds its place in his residence in Kingsville, Kleberg County.

Kristal Osborne found this old cast iron water pump at an estate sale in De Kalb, Texas. She turned it into a water fountain with an old milk can inherited from her grandparents.

Sandra Blanscet found this antique corn cob sheller from 1889 in a barn in Hurnville, Texas
