The paint is flaky, the cabinet is rusty, but that is the way some of us like it! This could be used in a garage, or man room, or just about anywhere! Measures 18 inches wide by 12 inches deep and stands 55 inches tall. The paint that is left is kind of minty green!

That face! He is so adorable! This is Napoleon or Junior the baby goat. Bob the sheep has taken an interest in this little guy, and if I pet Junior, Bob keeps a close eye on me! They share a stall at night, and Junior probably stays nice and warm with all that wool! The other goats are being a little territorial, but seems everyone is getting along pretty well!

Handmade one of a kind antique clown shoes. These are so funky! The leather is in excellent condition and is attached to the wood sole with small tacks. The sole is worn smooth. I can't imagine trying to wear these. They must have had to slide along the floor. I found one other pair
online that were similar and those were circa 1930's so I am guessing these are about the same age. The entire shoe measures 24 inches long! You could be the only one to own a pair of these!

This is one of my favorite finds! I just love the look of it. Made of wood with a steel rim wheel. Most likely a surveying tool for measuring distance. This has traces of black paint on the handle. Excellent condition. The wheel diameter measures 31 inches and the handle is 47 inches long. I think it makes a wonderful hanging display!

So cute! Chalkboard folds down for a desk like surface with a chalk tray, or swivel it up and it is a standing chalkboard easel. Measures 36 inches tall and is 16-1/2 inches wide. Top has graphic paper design but the roll is stationary, and doesn't roll up or down.

Large galvanized bucket has a hinged lid which covers a hand operated pump. I believe this would have been used to carry water into a field and used for some sort of rinsing, or washing. What a great look! measures 33 inches tall. SOLD!

At first it looks like just an unassuming wooden box with carrying handle but inside is the cool scale which hangs from a hook inside the cover. These were carried into the field and used for weighing things such as gold. This was manufactured by W. & L.E. Gurley, Troy, NY. The Gurleys business started in the mid 1850's. This is a very unusual and interesting scale.

Cute visuals! Smaller puzzles have three pieces and measure 7 by 3-1/2 inches. The larger ones have 4 pieces and measure 7 by 5. Simple design, and lovely colors. The goat is my favorite, with the dog a close second! These would be cute framed in a child's room.

This is hard to see in photos, but there are traces of old greenish/black paint on this cubby shelf. It measures 30 inches wide and is 40 inches tall and only 7 inches deep. Won't take up too much room! On the other side, the slats have been removed so the cubbies have easier access.

No Maria! You have enough scales already! My friend Maria shares my obsession with old scales, and she keeps saying she has too many. No such thing! This one is pretty cool because it comes with four numbered weights and a scale pan too!

We just brought Bob the sheep home on Monday night. He is such a sweetheart, and is already fitting in so nicely with his friends, Missy and Horns the goats. He adores Missy and follows her everywhere. She is sweet too, and I think she likes having another guy around! Because of Bob's dreadlocks, everyone thinks we should add Marley to his name, so he is now officially Bob Marley or just Bob, or Marley! We love him! In the middle picture you can see Horns checking him out through the window of the barn!
