Marvelous goose decoys by the Johnson Co. Seattle, Washington. These are some of my Oregon finds. I had to borrow a carry on bag from my sister to get these on the plane! But it was so worth it. I love them! They fold flat but had metal stakes to push into the ground near shallow water to attract the geese. Waterproof. Head swivels, and these can be hung on a wall as they have openings with rivets. Great camp display! Body of the goose measures 21 inches long and the neck extends 9 inches. Two different styles. One has the head up and the other has neck out. FIve available! ALL SOLD!

I saw these in Oregon, and just had to have them. The bags measure 11 by 6 inches. They also look great with some stuffing inside so they look like they are full of flour. After filling, you just fold the top down to close. Neat display with kitchen items.

Pair of wooden shutters in old green paint have shamrock cutouts. The cutout does go all the way through, but these are pictured with one stacked against the other, so it looks like it isn't completely cut out. They measure 53-1/2 inches tall and are 15-1/2 inches wide.

As most of you probably know, I love scales. I collect them myself, and buy and sell them. I have never seen one like this, and I just had to have it. It is a Detecto Junior and it is for weighing people! It says Watching your weight! patent date 1917. What a great look!

This has been packed away in storage, but I just brought it out because it's GREEN! Measures 28 by 18 inches and stands 24-1/2 inches tall. Legs fold up for flat storage. Made by the Ferguson furniture company. Stencil design on top. Also, shown with it, a Haeger donkey planter.
Table is SOLD!

Full size log bed comes with all rails, and the supports for the mattress. The supports are not just slats, but small rounded logs. I wish I had the room to set this up so people could see how it looks, but space just doesn't allow! Headboard measures 58 inches wide and 47 inches tall. I have always wanted one of these for the house. If I had a spare room, I would be keeping this!

Even the auctioneer didn't know what to call it! I think it has to have been some kind of belt driven pulley wheel. There seems to be a space for a belt to have fit into and a hole for a rod to insert into. In any case, it's very cool, and has some age as the top has square nails. Great primitive look!

These old galvanized items are always good sellers for me, but when they have a stripe or are painted like these, they rarely last! The tub has a hole in the bottom so it is no longer watertight, but they make great planters or anything looks good displayed in them. If I fill one with Mason jars, they sell out. The pail has a nice bale handle with wooden handle.
Bucket is SOLD!
TUb Is SOLD!

Deb just made a delivery with some of her beautiful handcrafted items. She is so clever in repurposing items to use in her crafting. The little hanging pocket at the bottom was once the leg of a pair of wool pants! Also, an old rusty skeleton key is attached to the wool heart applique. Shown at top is her lovely wool sheep with real wool curls for hair! She used a twig for hanger. Nothing goes to waste!
Hanging pocket with heart and key is SOLD!
