We are almost done, just need to build permanent steps out front. I planted my little garden last night, and my sister in law always puts witch hats on her shrubs, so I borrowed her idea! Don't forget our open house for 5th year anniversary and debut of the addition will be October 8 and 9. Details to follow soon!

You may have seen this before, but I love the idea of using it for Halloween! Most likely came from a church or cemetary. Rusty and primitive makes a spooky display! Measures 50 inches tall with a span of 24 inches at the widest point

This is only an unofficial opening of this room! I get two weeks with my Halloween displays and then everything will come out and all the guy stuff goes in for the GRAND OPENING! The weekend of October 8th and 9th will be the big debut of this room! More details to follow!

I had decided to bring candy back to the store. I had it here when I first opened, but I was my own best customer! Now that we have the beautiful general store counter, it just needed candy displayed on it again! There are some old candy boxes, most empty, but one box of Conversation hearts has never been opened. Then we have a selection of candy in bags, licorice, fireballs, jelly beans, tootsie rolls, Swedish fish, etc. I just have to stay away from it!

I saw this gorgeous witch weathervane a few years ago in an antique store and fell in love with it. I finally bought it from the owner this year, and if it never sells, I will happily keep it for myself! Patented 1930, it is missing part of it's broom and two of the directional letters. SOLD!

Great old Ideal wash tubs on legs. Rolling washstand has two big bins for washing and drains to remove water. This comes with a top so that you could display things if desired, or take the top off, and use as washstand alone. Great look for your laundry room!

I have a few bunches of Sweet Annie. It smells so good! Excellent for crafting, keeps it's scent for a long, long time. The last time I had Sweet Annie, it sold it out in about an hour! Also available a primitive drying rack.
Sweet Annie is SOLD OUT!

All that is left is the electrical work, some trim boards, and I need to paint the floor red just like the rest of the store. We are hoping for an October open house. Keeping our fingers crossed! Can't wait to fill this space up!

This was covered with some old wallpaper or contact paper. I can't imagine covering up this beauty! A little vinegar and scrubbing got the job done. Front has been painted, but sides are natural wood showing the Mother's Oats logo. Great little cupboard measures 19-1/2 by 11 by 20 inches.
Love the look of this, one of my favorite finds of the week! One side is solid wood, and the other is made up of five pieces of wood fitted together. Measures almost 14 inches in diameter. The auctioneer thought it might have been the lid of the barrel or a crock. I don't always care what something was originally used for, but buy them just because I like the way they look! This would look great hanging on a wall or from a beam.

I was just drawn to the shape of these. They are marked Hoeft Bros. Chicago. When I did some research, the Hoeft Bros. manufactured poultry supplies. Not positive that these were for chickens, but could have been a feeding dish for chicks? I just like the way they look. I hung one on my wall of rusty art on the back of the store. These are 7 inches from tip to tip.
Her supply was depleted over the weekend, so she brought in some new items on Sunday. Beautiful small table runner or candle mat, quilted, and embroidered with pumpkins and teastained. Also, the pretty little pillow with more pumpkins and teastained. Many more wonderful items to choose from in the store.
