Decor Restoration


   Décor Restoration at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®


Ever noticed the artifacts hanging from the walls and ceiling at any Cracker Barrel location? Most folks are surprised to learn all the old toys, tools, utensils, signs, and advertisements are original.  Since the artifacts in every store are unique, we like to think of every Cracker Barrel Old Country Store location as a museum of Americana.

You could say that Cracker Barrel decor is a family affair, because one family has purchased all the artifacts since the first store opened back in 1969.  Don and Kathleen Singleton owned an antique store in Lebanon when founder Danny Evins asked them to provide that Old Country Store look in his new restaurant.  Don and Kathleen liked the job, and eventually passed it down to their son Larry in 1980.

Now the Singletons have purchased well over a half million artifacts over the years.  But there's a process behind the scenes that takes place before we place these items in a store.  Larry's team will clean and restore every piece before it gets placed in a new Cracker Barrel Old Country Store location.

Larry's story has become quite popular with feature reporters.  Take a photo tour of the Décor Warehouse and you'll see why.  The following photographs can be reprinted in your publications.  Just e-mail us with your photo specifications and we'll get them to you as soon as possible.  We can also arrange interviews with Larry and a time for you to take pictures at your local Cracker Barrel location.
