I bought this over the summer and have been chomping at the bit (yes, pun intended) to bring it into the shop. I made myself wait until Halloween was almost over. This is a gorgeous sleigh, nice and sturdy with no rot on the runners or body. I think it has always been stored out of the weather. Slight red wash, and lots of display space. I just love them in the store to hold stuff! This is a nice compact size. measures 6 feet long and approx. 3 feet wide. SOLD!

This is large enough to make a great coffee table. Someone "antiqued" it a while back, but at least they painted it red! Made with square nails, and has one hand forged hinge showing on the top. Top is no longer attached, but fits snugly in place. One leather handle, other side is missing. Great look! Measures 34 by 19 and is 19 inches high. SOLD!

This morning I was working on making the house even scarier for Halloween, and this afternoon I was choosing Santas! It's never easy to decide which ones to buy. I would love to have them all, as they are each so unique and beautiful. Hand crafted by Pat O'Der, these make a wonderful gift for someone you love or add to your collection. Tall and short, big and small, sitting, hanging, and standing.....so many to choose from!

These make great planters, or use as a cooler. The inside is nice and clean, just fill it with ice and your favorite beverage. This has a cover, so you can display things on top too. Fill with some ornamental cabbage plants and you will have a garden piece that can stay right through Thanksgiving! This measures 18 by 21-1/2 and stands 32 inches tall.SOLD!

Even if you aren't restoring a 1940 Chevy, this is a cool piece. The dashboard has one gauge and ashtray intact. This color reminds me more of the 1957 Chevy turquoise. My husband thinks this would be great in a street rod, or just hang it on the wall. The old car parts are being repurposed in so many ways right now! This is 47 inches wide.

We had fun at an automotive flea market over the weekend. Lots of great stuff there! A tricycle remnant, that I think would be a cool wall hanger, an old hose reel, and a metal tool box. Tool box is 16-1/2 by 8 inches. Tool box and tricycle remnant and hose reel are all SOLD,

A huge thank you to everyone who purchased tickets for the 50/50 raffle for Lyn Kells who is walking with her team in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer this Sunday in Dover, NH. I had a new customer two weeks ago with out of state license plates. He got a dollar in change and he threw it into the bucket full of tickets. I asked him if he wanted me to write his name and number on a ticket. He said "no, just put the name of the person this is benefitting" so I wrote to Lyn Kells on it. My regular Thursday customer came in just now and I asked him to pull a ticket. He pulled the to Lyn Kells ticket! Maybe that guy from two weeks ago was just an angel in disguise! Lyn now has $121 to donate to the American Cancer Society! Thanks again everyone

This is not something I would normally be drawn to, but I love the way the shelves slide out. It makes an awesome display piece for linens. Originally had a top, and the left side door has a crack inside the big oval, but still so very cool. Also, it had an old antique store price tag on it, when it still had it's top it was going for $5,100! This measures 49 by 22 by 42 inches tall. SOLD!
