Come help celebrate our 7th Anniversary! Hard to believe how fast these 7 years have flown by. I guess that's what happens when you are lucky enough to do what you love every day! We will have a mystery sale, pick a slip of paper and take a 10-20 or 30% discount off your entire purchase. Guess how many candy corn our pumpkin jar holds. Whoever comes closest wins the jar. Refreshments will be served and there will be two raffled items you can enter to win in our free drawing. Come out and say hi! Open our regular hours Thursday through Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-5
Come and visit Daisy the vintage trailer. She is sold, but the new owner is graciously allowing us to show her off. Everything inside with a tag is available for sale. Lyn Kells and I have been collecting cowgirl and prairie themed items, including quilts, cowboy boots, enamelware, horse themed items, vintage dishware, and more.

Ever since I saw a fabulous display in Country Living magazine with a house that had two whole walls of cubbies, each cubby filled with a shoe shine box, I have been picking these up. It looked so cool to see all the different sizes, colors and designs. Here are three to start someone's collection!

From a tractor trailer! I could see this in a kid's room making either an awesome wall hanging or very cool headboard! Someone who loves trucks would love to have this. It is made of plastic, not metal, so it's not all that heavy to hang. Measures 55 inches wide and approx. 24 inches tall. Great International emblem! SOLD!

I have a smaller version of this trap in the store already. You can have a pair! This trap was propped open with a wooden stick and when the animal entered, the stick could be pulled with a string (by a very patient person) or knocked out of place and the top would come down trapping the animal. Great look. Measures 25 inches long by 11-1/2 inches wide and at highest part on back is 18 inches tall. SOLD!

I think this milk crate has been left sitting outside for several decades. Maybe when they stopped getting milk delivered to the home, they just left the crate out there! I love rusty stuff though, and seems a lot of other people do too. Love the little lift out milk bottle holder inside. Top says Rochester, but not a state. Could be NH or NY or who knows where? This held six quart sized bottles.

When we found this it was labeled wire thing! My friends and I thought it was an early grille, and when we showed hubby, he agreed. Perhaps a Legends racer? In any case, it's neat looking and makes a great wall hanger. Measures 19 inches tall, and is 14 inches across at top and narrows to 8 inches across at base. SOLD!

Fantastic green paint on the sock stretcher. Made of metal, and is 35 inches long. The laundry stick is cool too. I have only had wooden ones, never one with metal prongs. There is a label intact as well that shows the lady of the house doing her laundry in a washtub with wringer nearby! The laundry stick is 29-1/2 inches long. Both are SOLD!

Deb of Rustic Country Handcrafts made the beautiful table runner in fall colors. Patchwork squares and lovely points of fabric above the embroidered words Autumn Blessings. The table runner is 33-1/2 by 15 inches. Deb's sister in law Pam Knowlton created the adorable little pumpkin face bowl fillers. A cinnamon stick is the stem and two rusty jingle bells for eyes. So cute!

As soon as I saw this, I fell in love. As I was carrying it out of the flea market, everyone was saying "look at that cool old boat!" My husband looked it up when we got home and it is made by Murray as a private label for store chain. On one side it reads very faintly Atkins Barracuda, which are quite rare. This was missing it's rubber around two tires (tires are not all original to boat) and it was missing it's pedal mechanism and steering wheel. We purchased new rubber for two tires, the wheel, and pedals. We had a friend fabricate the pedal mechanism. This has been sandblasted, all the work is done except for paint, and a few more trim pieces. Asking $325, which if you do some research is a very fair price. Not too many of these around. Measures 39 inches from stem to stern and 18 inches across. Stands about 12 inches tall, not including wheel height. SOLD!
