Antique factories & commerce were the engine of our society as they provided jobs as well as trade opportunities throughout our developing world economy. As factories and commerce progressed and over time, many items which were initially produced by skilled hand labor gave way to machinery and automation. Within this classification you will find a broad grouping of collectibles which were replaced by newer and more sophisticated methods of manufacture. These old pieces left behind from many generations ago will create an atmosphere which preserves the past in our ever changing society. Here at PrairieGrit.com we understand the importance of saving small pieces of our rich history and as such we welcome you to our new and advanced antiques market place. Hopefully, you find our large crisp pictures, easy checkout and favorable terms thereby allowing us to become your favorite antiques shopping site!
