This old barrel is in great condition. Has wooden strapping instead of iron. Paper label is still mostly intact. Held wheat flour, now that is some heavy duty baking supplies! Measures 18 inches in diameter and stands 28 inches tall.

I took one photo of this on it's side because my friend Maria likes to use these old crates in a different way. So, it could be used as a little cupboard, or use it as a crate down flat. Divided into two sections inside and has an awesome label on each end that read butter, cheese,
eggs and poultry. Measures 28 by 12-1/2 inches and is 14-1/2 inches tall. SOLD!

It feels so mean to call this a lard bucket, but that is what it is! Fantastic old wooden bucket with Swift's Silver Leaf Brand Lard label. What patina on this beauty! Bucket is 12 inches in diameter and 9-1/2 inches tall.
SOLD! This wins the prize for least amount of time on website before selling! Less than one minute!

Last night's auction yielded a great stoneware collection. Four different pieces. One open mouth crock with bale handle, one crock marked Wm. Hare Wilmington, Delaware, one ink bottle, and my favorite, the large brown jug with a leather topped cork.

Patented mid 1850's is this table top apple peeler manufactured by Lockey and Howland. It is missing an arm, but just look at those gears! Maybe you can't use it to peel an apple, but it will make a great display piece.

My husband and I are decidedly "dog people" In all the years we have been together, we have owned one cat, a pretty tiger colored cat that looked just like this one! We didn't go out looking for a cat, but she found us. I came home one day and there was this tiny little kitten, only about 5 weeks old hiding under the tractor in the garage. How could we refuse her? This sign reminded me of our beloved Tiger, so I had to buy it. It measures approx. 11-1/2 inches by 7 inches. Sleepy Cat Inn. The back reads Ox Pond Press, Webster, NH

I bought a great lot of these hand carved wooden sap spiles. Each one is different and unique. Then while making room in my storage trailer, I discovered one last wooden sap bucket cover that I forgot I had. They are perfect together!
Sap spiles are SOLD!
Sap cover is SOLD!

There is something about wooden pieces that I am attracted to! Tool box looks like it had a lock at one time that someone pried off. Maybe they thought there was some treasure hidden inside. The smallest boot jack I have had, only 11 inches long! Love the wooden shoe form, it has great patina, and some relic that has rusty metal on the back and a rusty screen in the center. Not sure what it was, but it's cool!
Boot jack and the screen and wood piece are SOLD!

We just bought a carnival trailer! Lots more fun treasures to come. Included in the sale was this huge roulette wheel. It stands 8 feet tall and is 4 feet in diameter. Very cool! Also in the trailer were these awesome vintage clown heads. They were used in the water squirting game where you shoot the water into the clown's mouth. I just love these guys! Each one is different. Clown heads are approx. 10 inches high.
Roulette wheel and all clown heads are SOLD! Autos 10 cents sign is SOLD!

In excellent condition. Nice dovetail joining on corners and finger holds in end. Measures 10 by 7-1/2 and stands 7 inches tall. Reads Edison Lamp Box. I don't usually price my items online, but this is $32. Apparently they are quite collectible!

I can't tell you how many times I have been outbid on these! I love the look of them, and don't see too many come up at auction. Well, I finally snagged one! Measures 12 by 6-1/4 by 6-1/4. Would hold 3 dozen eggs. Cardboard insert on bottom is a little rough, but the top layer is in good condition. Comes with two eggs!

Measures 32 inches by 5-1/4 inches and is 4 inches tall. I love the patina on this! My clever friend Maria likes to use things in a different way and she will stand a box on it's side to use it as a shelf. Here it is shown standing up with two of her hearts on the shelf.
