Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days creation by Marci Goodman
If you envision the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days as only a collection of antiques that don’t fit your decor, then think again. We were so fortunate to have Marci Goodman, of Hair Cut Hill, share her creation of this friendly Robot. Now he is not your mechanical kind of robot that would move around and clean your house but he does help clean up the house by providing very unique storage spaces.
The eyes are actually draw pulls and of course that means drawers. Marci found an old t.v. antenna and it rounded off the head perfectly.
Where the picture of hands circles a heart, that is actually a door to a cabinet. There is a wooden serving tray attached below the chest that provides a shelf for storage. Then you move down to the legs which are made of some netting type of material which are perfect places to store the kids toys. Marci found these boots but they were in need of some blue paint to fix them up and add them to the robot.
Marci found almost all of the items that make up this robot at the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days and using her artistic talents she put them together to create a work of art. Certain items like the tubes for the arms or the netting for the legs she found at a local hardware store.
So if you are thinking that the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days is only a place to find antiques that you can’t paint or re-purpose, think again. The items sold in Oronoco this August 17-19th are only limited by your imagination. Let us see what you can or have created.
