Each week I show a few highlights on website. But I also continuously add smalls. On an average weekend, 50-100 new items come in. I often buy throughout the weekend or take from my storage areas. So, there is always something new to find, like this sample of some smalls new for the week!

Wall hanging lavabo used for washing hands, often in churches. I had just seen one of these online a few days ago planted with flowers and then I find this one! Made in the United Arab Republic. A union between Egypt and Syria that only lasted from 1958-1961. Two pieces hang separately, and could be planted with flowers as shown. Water tank is 15 inches tall and the basin is 13 inches wide. Sorry for any confusion, the white piece with flowers is there just to show how this might be used for planting. I do not have the white piece!

This is one of those things that the pictures don't do justice to. Must be seen in person to appreciate the unique qualities of this piece! Hollowed from one piece of wood and has lovely stenciling on all sides. Old iron spigot. The pump handle bracket has been replaced and may have been metal at one time. Very cool, and would make a fantastic garden piece or displayed indoors to protect the wood! This is very tall, well over six feet tall.

Two rows of metal grids allow air to circulate through to dry berries. Fantastic look with the red paint on outside edges. This could hang on the wall or use as a display on counter or table. Measures 19 by 11 and is 2-1/2 inches thick.

This seems to have been used as the lid for something, maybe a refrigerated bin? Tin on one side with fabulous rusty patina. The other side is wooden and covered with old wallpaper. Also has amazing strap hinges. This is heavy and measures 16 by 50 inches and the door is 2 inches thick.
