In great condition, and pretty solid. Nice old blue gray paint is fading with age. Measures under 7 feet long and 47 inches wide at pieces used for attaching to horse. I was going to save it for a winter item, and then I thought it might look nice in the store since it has wonderful display space. Moved it in last night after we closed! SOLD!

Hand hewn rungs and sides make a fantastic apple picking ladder. Rungs are simply pegged into sides. Stands nine feet tall. They also look great hanging on the wall or from a beam horizontally. One customer used one for a railing in her log cabin. Great idea!

Yes, it's seen better days and I wish the real horse hair magnetic tails were still with it, but I still think it's cute. I used to love to play that game at birthday parties! It didn't take much to entertain us back then!

I bought this older whirlygig at an auction and when I got home, I was looking for a post to put it on to display. Then I remembered I had this old cast iron piece that just happened to fit perfectly (after a few minor adjustments, of course) Now it is ready to stand in your garden or could even be used indoors as wonderful architectural art. Even in a slight breeze, the blades whirl around. With post it stands about six feet tall.

Still unpacking and itemizing! I bought three separate boxes of miniatures, including tiny books, scoops, silverware, crocks, chairs, accessories. So much fun to go through! I have one shelf lined up with some of the items, more to come out as it sells!

Awesome Richfield gas pump. One of hubby's best picks by far! This one has lights that light up. Simply plug it in and overhead lights come on as well as interior pump lights. The gas price card reads 19 cents plus tax. Those were the days! We didn't put it into the store due to the height, but we are enjoying it in front of our garage! Some people like to restore these, but I love this look. Gives it character!

Fantastic primitive! Fletchers Egg Crate from Wilson Underhill Co. South Market St. Boston. The only unfortunate part is that the best graphics are on the back of the crate, but you can always display it with the back side showing. Inside cover has handwritten date of 1898. Gorgeous patina on this one! Measures 31 by 15 by 16-3/4 inches.SOLD!

I remember these old flags from my childhood. We always had a boat, and spent every summer on the water. This flag measures 8-1/2 by 14 inches with a rope hook and loop for hanging. These flags came with different symbols, and this one stands for In Distress! SOLD!

Love this old crate that was extremely well built. I don't think I have seen an old crate so sturdily built. The side reads Keep Away from Others (always good advice!) and Keep Dry. We believe it may have been for dynamite due to the wording and solid construction. Measures 22 by 15 by 10-1/2 inches high. Beautiful wide dovetail joints! SOLD!

I know a lot of people love to visit the goats when they come to Log Cabin. Horns was our original goat that we adopted from the SPCA to keep our old horse Ginger company. They were good barn mates. After Ginger passed away, we bought Missy to keep Horns company, and that was how the little goat herd began. We loved old Horns, and he had a good long life, but will be dearly missed.

We were headed to our friend's barn sale when we passed a dirt road and a sign reading barn sale. Barry asked if I wanted to check it out, and so I turned around. This was the first thing I saw, and I fell in love instantly! So glad he suggested stopping! One sided wooden sign reads Sunnyside Restaurant and Gift Shoppe. This is a big one, measuring 48 inches tall and 40 inches wide. Just imagine this hanging in a country kitchen or dining room. SOLD! :-(

Unusual wooden refrigeration trunk. Partial label inside reads Instructions for using your refrigerator. This has wide, wide dovetailed corners and some square nails dating it back to probably mid 1800's. Blackish green paint and inside has been covered with wallpaper. Two handles and a little step back on top. I have never seen one like it. Measures 35 by 24 and stands 23 inches high. Very unique find! SOLD!

This would come in so handy for pinning your patterns on to fabric. It has measurements along both edges. Very useful. Measures 2 yards wide by 36 inches tall. I think this would also look fantastic attached to the wall and used as a giant memo board, you could use tacks to attach your photos, ticket stubs, etc. Made of heavy cardboard.
