This is just a small sampling of the new items in the store this week. Remember, I only post a few photos each week, and have lots more unusual finds available. Each day, I also usually bring in at least five more items as things sell.

Just love these wonderful old boxes. Nicely dovetailed joints on corners, and graphics on front read Burrows Adding Machine Co. Box measures 22-1/2 by 14 inches by 12 inches high. Wooden handles on sides, and old latch on front.

This great table could be used in so many ways. It would make a fabulous potting bench, or a laundry room table, a sofa table, or it's just the right height for gift wrapping. No need to stoop over because this table stands 3 feet tall! Measures 57-1/2 by 20 inches. Black painted legs with beautiful natural wood top, 3 boards wide.

Awesome green Sunny Suzy washing machine has a little wringer on top, and it actually turns when you crank the handle. After I bought this, everyone that walked by me had a comment. "you doing some laundry?" "Great color on that washing machine" "Where did you find that?" (well there isn't a booth selling them, this was the only one!) "Wow, great piece" It was pretty funny. I should have had a stack of business cards to hand out so they would know where to come and buy it!

Cute little metal toy phone in my favorite color! The little wooden bench is a nice size, measuring 22 inches by 14 inches and standing 12 inches tall. The top is made of individual wood strips that have been joined together. Handy little bench.

This is just beautiful and very unique with its dual rear wheels. I have never, ever seen one like it. I was told that this was a real farm wagon used for hauling. Not a child's toy wagon. Very heavy duty and just wonderful with its old green and red paint. It has a handle with a remnant of old rope attached. It's long, just under 4 feet long and 16 inches wide. I know I am going to get a ton of phone calls on this one, so I will price it here and now. $149.00 for this one of a kind beauty. (Flowers not included in that price! )

This could very well be the brother of John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmitt! Not really, different spelling, but I just couldn't resist. Great green paint on this old tool box along with the stenciled name Billy Schmitt. One lift out tray and latch on front. Box measures 28-1/2 inches long by 13-3/4 inches deep and 11 inches tall.

My very creative friend Deb, of Rustic Country Handcrafts gave me this idea. The front door of the cabinet was missing its glass, so it has a wide wallpaper border in its place. The first time I saw one of Deb's pieces like this, I thought she had handpainted the scene, but she said "no, it's wallpaper border!" She's so clever! 3 glass shelves are inside. SOLD!
If you sell or have lots of rolling pins, then you need this rack. Metal rack nicely displays your pins, or it could be used in the bathroom to hold hand towels. Or, use it as intended..... for wine bottles. Very handy and multi-functional!

Very cool artist's paint box has handle and latches for carrying. In addition to the traces of paint splatters, it also comes with some old tubes of paint, and a bottle of linseed oil. Nicely dovetailed edges on box and brass hardware. Box measures 17" by 13" by 4" high. SOLD!

Does your mailbox get vandalized by hoodlums? This is the one for you then! Custom made of steel with diamond plate on the roof, it must weigh 60 pounds. My son's friend said "if anyone tried to hit this with a baseball bat they would get pulled right out of the car!" My favorite part is the metal rooster. He's the flag that you raise to let the mail carrier know you have mail waiting to be picked up. He folds down inside the roof when not needed. This would also be great just out in the garden as a decorative piece. SOLD!

There was something about this old cash register that just spoke to me. I spotted it at a huge flea market. I was dickering on the price with the guy selling it. He said he would take my offer if it was still unsold before I left. As I was walking around, it was just bothering me! I was afraid it would be gone by the time I got back. Luckily it wasn't. No one else probably wanted to carry it, as it is quite heavy. It's not too big, only 12 inches wide by 17 inches tall and 7 inches deep. Who knows? there may be money locked inside it still.

Lovely old green paint, and awesome handles on each side. The top has been repaired with hinges. This is what I love about old things.....when something broke, it wasn't thrown away, they just figured out a way to patch it back together. This gives these old pieces great history! Measures 18 by 16-1/2 inches and stands 17 inches tall. SOLD!

I learned that these were mostly used on a farm to bring water to an area that needed watering. The tank would be filled with water and then there was a hand cranked sprayer. Patent date of 1912. Made in Ashland, Ohio. What a fantastic garden piece this would be! SOLD!

I loved this old rusty tub, but my husband thought I was nuts for buying it. He said "it has a hole in the bottom!" I said "no one will care!" (It's not like you are going to give the baby a bath in it!) This has that great aged and well used look that can't be reproduced. I forgot to measure it, but would estimate that it's about two feet long.

These metal door pushes would be attached to an old country store screen door to prevent people from pushing on the screen. Great advertising and they are often shown in country magazines adorning a screen door. Makes a great addition to your country decor.
