I asked my husband to build a bigger house with a huge laundry room so I could keep this. For some reason, he said "Um, no!" So, here it is for sale. I looked these washers up and they originally came on a cast iron stand and had a wringer device attached to the top. So, this is not complete, but I love the old wooden barrel and especially love the cool paper label with colorful graphics. My friend saw that this has a drain hole, and he thought it would make an excellent ice bucket for a chilled supply of beer (or soda!)

My picker friend described this to me over the phone last night, and I drove to Salisbury, Mass. this morning to see it in person. I looked these up last night and thought they were pretty cool. They were used to reap grain and after the blade cuts the grain, the wooden teeth would cradle it in rows. Very primitive piece! Now I need to find a place for it inside the store. It's going to take some fancy footwork to find a spot for this beauty.

I found some similar mallets on the internet, but none of them say definitively what these were used for. I bought it because I liked the look of it. It is quite heavy and has rawhide on each end. One website said these were used by millers and another called them refractory hammers for breaking bricks in furnaces. Not sure, but it's still cool. Has initials carved into handle. Interesting tool!

I don't usually update my blog over the weekend, but I got so many great things after I had done it this week, that I wanted to show a few more things. These great old blocks have cool pictures on one side, embossed letters on one side, flat letters on one side, and they just have a great look to them.

I am not positive this came from a chicken coop, but it did come from a chicken farm, so I think it's a pretty safe assumption! My crafty customers will undoubtedly make something cool out of this! Wood frame with chicken wire attached. Frame is painted white and measures 24 inches by 20 inches.

Yes, it is a pink stepladder. I am calling it the "lady carpenter's" stepladder! It is perfect for the garden to hold plants, or if you sell linens, this would make a great display! Also, a cute little plant stand and a birdcage.
Plant stand is sold!
Bird cage is sold!
Pink Ladder is SOLD!

Someone made this great little weathered wood cupboard, so I don't think it's too old, but it is a nice size for smaller spaces. The back has a door, and the front has open shelving. Top is slanted, sides have some white chippy paint residue. This stands 48-1/2 inches tall, and is 24 inches wide, and 14 inches deep. I know people are going to ask, so it's $59.00!

Take some time next time you come in to check out Corrine's jewelry. The thing I hear most from people who look through her lovely items is that her prices are really reasonable. Great for gifts, or a treat for yourself. In this economy, we all need a little pick me up, and here is something you can buy without feeling guilty that you spent too much money! Wonderful selection of bracelets, earrings, rings, necklaces.

While I can't take credit for these great photos, it is my rusty old truck cab that this is so nicely resting on! Shop early for a unique one of a kind Father's day or graduation gift. Perfect for the musician or traveler in your family! This case is empty, but what a story all the decals and stickers tell!

We have all been seeing the potting benches selling for $600-800. All you need is some reclaimed lumber, a couple of funky faucets, rudimentary carpentry skills and this sink........and you too can build a masterpiece and then sell it for big money, or use it for your own gardening needs! SOLD!

Things just look cooler in threes! On the bottom is a vintage cardboard chocolate bon bon bucket. This is about the size I like to take to the movies (and you should see my popcorn bucket!) In the middle is a distressed tin container with off white chippy paint and on top is the Julienned potato tin.

These look so pretty together! The scale is actually more of a seafoam green and the vintage pie plate has a glazed turquoise interior, but I thought they looked lovely together. I would be tempted to buy them both and place the pie plate on the scale tray. Scale is a Universal household scale.
Scale is sold!

Lucky, lucky me! A consigner offered to let me display and sell this on my porch. Just in time for summer parties. This cooler is dry cooled and maintains a constant interior temp of 40 degrees. Compressor and fan in perfect working order. We will be selling ice cold Coke in glass bottles from this machine while the cooler is here, which we don't expect to be long. What a way to test the efficiency of this cooler. Remember you can put any beverage of your choice once you buy it. Fill it with beer!
