When you buy an older home, there’s always some kind of secret to unlock. People have encountered all sorts of interesting items while doing construction on their newly acquired homes, and this story is no exception.
When a woman wanted to get rid of some old carpeting in her house, she discovered something that had been hiding beneath that unattractive old carpet—a cellar door. Although it does sound somewhat akin to the beginning of a horror flick, there was a perfectly pleasant surprise awaiting her—once she stepped down the rickety, old staircase.
It appeared that one of the home’s prior owners had been into doing serious pickling. Lined with beautiful old Mason jars that were both filled and empty, this cellar was truly a sight to behold. It’s no wonder that the pictures started going viral once the homeowner’s friend, an imgur user known as madhats86, uploaded them to the popular website.
The treasure trove of old Mason jars was truly a sight to behold. Offering a glimpse into the life of someone who was enthusiastically pickling vegetables and fruits decades ago, there’s something incredibly beautiful and surreal about the entire scene. It’s a safe bet that everyone is now going to search their cellars for similarly interesting finds.
