        Steampunk ‘bugs’ & other pieces a hit with holiday shoppers
          NORTH PORT, FL— The holidays were all about steampunk at Vintage Finders Warehouse,
        1075 Innovation Ave., Unit 106, North Port.
           Hanging light fixtures, floor lamps and jewelry boxes made from gears, wires, old tools,                      TAMPA
        cutlery, hardware, batteries and other miscellaneous bits and pieces were snatched up last
        month for holiday gifts. And steampunk artist Randy Johnson’s one-of-a-kind “bugs” at just
        $20 each are so popular that many customers stop by regularly to bag the latest creations
        for themselves.                                                                                                     AREA
           For those vintage lovers who want to start the New Year re-organizing their homes, the
        Warehouse has stocked a large supply of wooden crates, chests and old trunks. These items
        make great storage in the vintage home, and can also be painted to match your décor.
           The Warehouse’s Dixie Belle chalk paint trade is still as strong as ever, with classes for               ANTIQUES
        DIYers and custom painting for those who don’t want to do it themselves. The latest trend
        is painting cabinets with one of Dixie Belle’s 60 colors, and Warehouse owner and painting
        expert Diane Castellano is available to teach or do the work herself in your home.                            INCLUDING LUTZ
           The Warehouse has added new hours for the winter season, and is now open Thursday,
        9 AM to 2 PM, plus Friday and Saturday, 9 AM to 4 PM, or by appointment by calling (941)
