Not something I would normally have in my store, but sometimes I buy things because I just know someone else will love it! This would make an excellent display for fall or thinking ahead to your holiday booth with stockings and pine garlands. Priced to sell at $99! I have a pumpkin hanging inside on the back wall which is not included with the fireplace.

I just love this piece! What a great primitive look to it. I just noticed some faint lettering when I viewed the photos. I put some horseshoeing tools and a horseshoe in this box. Not sure if it was definitely a farrier's box as there is no handle, but it is a great little divided box for just about anything. I didn't get a chance to measure this. We were working on the addition and we borrowed the store tape measure and it never got returned. Sorry!

I just purchased about 40 of these old glass canning jars. I feel like I have been washing them for days! They look so much better after a hot, soapy bath. Who doesn't? The oval galvanized tub is also available!
This batch of jars and the tub are SOLD! More jars available.

These industrial carts were numbered with their weight and then loaded with stock and weighed. The cart weight would be deducted and they would know how much the load of stock weighed. This particular cart weighs 137 pounds. The day we bought it, I was mentally dividing that weight in half to get to roughly 70 pounds each that my husband and I would be lifting onto the back of our truck! These make great coffee tables, or would look fantastic out on your lawn or porch loaded with mums and pumpkins!

There are four bags in all. They are so soft, they have undoubtedly been laundered countless times. One is a feed bag with graphics, the other has initials U.N.C. and the third has a small printing on one corner. The fourth is plain, with a drawstring. So many uses!
Feed sack with blue graphics is SOLD!
U.N.C. Is sold, and smallest with drawstring is sold!

Beautiful old wooden wheelbarrow sides have so many uses. You can repair a wheelbarrow and use them as actually intended. I have so many clever customers who repurpose these and paint on them, or make shutters out of them, you just never know what someone will come up with. Nice old blue paint.

I have spent two days on the road this week hunting for treasures! Also, spent some time working on the store addition. It is coming along, and we have moved to the inside. Just finished insulating, and need to get to work on the knotty pine cathedral ceiling we will be installing soon. Come and visit, and see our progress, plus the many, many items I have found for the shop. For now, the sun is shining, so I am going to go and enjoy it!

I am just drawn to laundry items. The old soap boxes, and washsticks, they all look great displayed in a country laundry room. This old bottle is almost empty, just a tiny bit of blue crystals remain. It has a great look and would make a nice addition to your laundry room!

I am thinking someone put these together. Usually these wicker baby scales have a scale face with a baby, or baby themed graphics. But, it is still cool and the basket would make for a great display of just about anything you like. I have seen these in a country bathroom holding rolled up towels and bath soaps. Just one idea!

What a gorgeous cupboard. Love the wainscoting finish on front, back, and sides, several shelves for great display area. This measures 6 feet tall and is 39 inches wide, but only 13-1/2 inches deep so it won't take up much room.
