If you sell or collect dolls, or teddy bears, then this is for you! Antique crib on wheels, has the nice chippy look I love. Hard rubber wheels and the base of the crib is wide wooden board. Cool looking display piece! Measures 40 inches long by 32-1/2 inches tall and 19-1/2 inches wide.

This was in the store several months ago, but I moved it into storage for lack of space. Well, it's back.........! I love it out in the middle of the room as opposed to up against the wall where it wasn't showing it's full potential. Great graphics on one end reads Eureka Butter Worker made in Bellows Falls, VT. Patent date 1886. It measures 59 inches long by 22-1/2 inches wide and stands 25-1/2 inches tall.

Love the graphics on this tin sign. A repro of an old advertisement. The sign measures 32-1/2 inches tall by 21-1/2 inches wide. Also, a vintage resin rooster. He has a few minor issues, but looks great sitting on a shelf or cupboard!
Rooster is SOLD!
Sign is SOLD!

It takes years of painting many different colors, and layers flaking off to get just this look. I love the doors on this piece! The hinges are also cool, signed Clarke Patent in script, which I believe dates them back to the 1860's. Inside are two shelves. The cupboard measures 30 inches wide by 15 inches deep by 36 inches tall. I have said it before, but if I had room in my house, I would keep this one!

From Salisbury Beach! The old Tilt-a-Whirl ride sign showing how many tickets you needed to ride. Also to secure your belongings! I still remember going there in the 70's and my Uncle Rick got on and once that started spinning all his change came flying out of his pockets! The sign is wooden with tin front. Great beach memorabilia. Measures 12 by 38 inches.

Last week, I had a little one with no legs, this week, I have a larger one with the stand. These were used to press the buttermilk out of the butter and were slanted so that the milk would run down into a bucket or catch. The sides are not original, but the rest is old and primitive! Measures 32 inches long by 27 inches wide at widest point and stands 27 inches at highest point.

Fantastic porcelain barber shop sign with depiction of pole and advertising for Wildroots. Sign measures 39 inches long and 13-1/2 inches tall. Dated in corner 3-57. Great, great piece!

Measures 3 feet in diameter, and is very heavy! Made entirely of wood fitted together. The wheel is 11 inches thick and has two feet on bottom so this could be displayed flat on the floor as well. The industrial stuff is hot right now!

This is the top section of an old butter worker. This would have been on legs or a stand, but I think it would make an excellent display piece on an old country table, as is. It can be filled with pumpkins or gourds, or greens and berries for the winter holidays. Still has its wooden handle which would slide back and forth to work the butter. Measures 24 inches long and is 13-1/2 inches at widest point. Sides are 5-1/2 inches high.

This is perfect for a coffee table because it has all that storage, and you can hide or store a bunch of stuff inside! Handpainted design all around. The trunk has two handles and measures 38" wide by 18" front to back and stands 17-1/2" tall.
Note: It always amazes me to see a detail in photos that I have missed in person. I just saw that the lid reads Made in ...... can't quite make it out. I will have to investigate where it was made. Very cool!

I had it all planned out to use the Holy Toledo line in my title thinking this was a Toledo scale. When I went out to photograph it, I saw that it was actually a Chattilon. I decided to use my line anyway! It is very big, and very heavy. I am guessing it weighs 50 pounds at least. This is another of my husband's finds. I love it hanging over the candy counter. It has a nice large basket for display, in this case, some of my vintage candy boxes.

I have sold a lot of sap buckets, but I don't get too many with paint on them. Love the yellow. Perfect for fall decorating! Old sap bucket cover would hang over the bucket to keep out the leaves and twigs, etc. One of my crafty customers will either paint on this or repurpose it somehow!
Sap bucket is SOLD!

Here is the car that inspired the addition to the store! My husband found the tail section and hood at an automotive flea market. The hood is aluminum and the rear section was fabricated from Kaiser fenders. He took front and rear axles and made a frame and then a friend who fabricates race cars built the rest! This car doesn't have an engine but looks like it is ready to race. NOT FOR SALE! This was a labor of love and is in the store so kids can sit in the cockpit and imagine themselves as racers!
