Star Quality
Tin barn stars (first used as a calling card by Amish barn builders in the 19th century) have enjoyed quite a resurgence in recent years—it’s almost impossible to visit an antique store or flip through an outdoor-decor catalog without seeing those familiar five points.

I’m partial to Viva Terra’s versions, though, because they’re the real deal: The weathered tin used to make the stars is salvaged from actual barn roofs, and they’re hand-pressed by Amish craftsmen in the same centuries-old tradition.

$55 to $75
