FAR 513 - Garst Family Collection

Jean Garst is a remarkable woman. Generous and joyful, quite particular and meticulous, she possesses an innate sense of order. The collection that she has chosen to share reflects her and her family’s appreciation of quality craftsmanship, history & practicality. Highly involved in her community and Green Hill Church of the Brethren, many items have been locally crafted by artisans of all types. I can think of no one else who could set a table for SIXTEEN people with matching china! A number of pieces are generational from both her family, as well as her late husband, Wayne Garst, of Garst Brothers Dairy. Memorabilia from the Dairy and Poultry Farm have been kept in a spectacular display case. Gold trimmed Christmas Ribbons by Meiwa (once again, service for 16!), as well as many festive and tasteful holiday decorations. Outstanding furniture including a Hunzinger style platform rocker; Aspen Trestle Table (9-½ feet long with 2 leaves installed); early 1900’s Imperial Tea cart; rare Regency mahogany scroll arm klismos chairs; beautiful and large hand knotted rug; vintage Fenton glass; Pristine MCM Lenox Wyndcrest china; Waterford and Princess House crystal; Vintage Pyrex & Corning Ware; Nippon hot chocolate set; global teacup collection; gorgeous glassware; Amish & locally made quilts; outstanding collection of sheet music; beautiful lace & crocheted table linens and doilies; vintage bakelite vanity set; Longaberger baskets; multiple P. Buckley Moss signed prints and more. Wayne’s workshop holds countless treasures including pristine industrial shelving, a large locking Kobalt cabinet, vintage steel cabinets and drawers, Porter-Cable router & an extensive collection of accessories; Craftsman bandsaw/sander, two bench grinders, Walker-Turner drill press, vast collections of prep and finishing tools, hand tools and accessories, vintage Snap-On, Disston saw, electrical supplies for any job, like new battery powered Greenworks telescoping hedge trimmer, Stihl blower, and much more.
