This piece was sold before it even made it into the store. One of my regular customers heard about it and just had to have it! He let me keep it for a little while to display because I thought it was so cool. Very primitive, just the way I like it!

Here is our big wagon out by the street all decorated for fall. If I put real pumpkins out there, they get stolen since it's so far from the house. My friend John gave me this foam pumpkin that has an electric light in it. The cord is pushed into the basket and has a big rock on top of it. If they try to grab this one, it won't come out so easily!

I was up in Arundel, Maine at the outdoor market and spotted this little sign way under someone's table. I was so happy because I thought it would look great on the front of my cabin. I had to laugh when I turned it over after I bought it, and saw that it said "made in China!" Oh well, at least it looks old.

These are stacked where the miniatures used to be. It was definitely time for a change. I have had the two trunks for sale, but the little folding tray table was a new addition over the weekend. Can you tell I like things with flaking or missing paint?

I got this great old tool tote up in Rumney, NH. I knew it needed some Indian corn displayed in it. My youngest son and I went off in search of some. Two hours and several errands later, we finally got home with it. It was worth it though! Of course, now that I have it, I see it for sale everywhere.

My son's friend brought me this old china cabinet with no door. I kept trying to think of same way I could use it, and then decided that I should put all the miniatures in it. The front is glass so it should be easier to see all the little pieces.

Large print of little shepherdess with sheep. Beautiful old frame with wooden backing. Print was done by Mon. A.D. Braun. Very large and heavy. I wanted to keep this for my living room, but my daughter said it was "too fancy" for our house! I don't know what that says about our house, but now it's for sale. I guess I will have to enjoy it while it's in the shop.

Very cool Adjust-O-Matic dress form is adjustable in height. Will stand at full height of approx. 5 feet tall. I bought mine at an auction and then saw one down at Brimfield this past week. Mine is marked at a quarter of their price! In excellent condition.

This weekend we are having a porch sale. 20% off anything on the porch or outside. Time to start thinning down out there. Lots of great stuff. Now is your chance to save some money on anything you loved outside! September 3rd through the 6th.
We made a small dent in our outdoor area with our sale, so decided to continue the sale with 20% off anything outside through this weekend. Sept. 10th through the 13th.

It's September so it's time for fall and Halloween to arrive at Log Cabin Antiques. My friend was throwing this old rusty wheelbarrow away (the horror!) I took it and planted some spreading flowers in it. I have had it in my driveway all summer and just couldn't part with it. I'm still not sure if I will sell it, but I decided to make it part of my display. I just need some pumpkins now!

I bought this handpainted Harvest scene last year and have been saving it until now. Big pumpkins and haystacks decorate this wooden piece. It may have been used as scenery for a play.
Pumpkin scene is sold, and the big trencher is sold too!
