Wonderful old trough for horses or cows, still holds water. This measures 43 by 23 and stands 13 inches tall. SOLD!
What a neat old classroom tool! Circa 1955, chain driven planetarium system features the rotating sun, earth and moon. Shows the months of the year and position. Very cool. The globe will pop off when it goes around in a couple of rotations, which it's not supposed to do, but otherwise in very good condition. SOLD!

We went to Connecticut over the weekend and stopped to visit my cousin and his family. He told me that he was cleaning out his grandfather's barn next door. They had to have it emptied out and so, we took some of the wonderful treasures home to NH with us! All the pictures from this week came from the barn.

We were all in love with this! I have never had a wooden kayak, wooden canoe yes, but not a kayak. This is handcrafted with wooden frame and metal ribs. Covered with canvas, that has worn away in spots to show frame beneath. Maybe it's not perfect, but love the primitive appeal, and it looks fabulous hanging from the beams in the store. A lakeside restaurant or home would be an ideal setting for this interesting piece. Approx. measurements are just about 9 feet long, 27 inches wide and about 14 inches high. SOLD!

These would be partially buried in the earth and it has an open bottom to allow for drainage. The whole lid lifts or smaller inner lid can be lifted to open separately. They were almost like an earlier compost system. Kept animals away from waste, etc. This would be a great planter if you chose to repurpose! The can is 19 inches tall and has a diameter of 17 inches. Embossed Dover in lid. SOLD!
My cousin Laurie thought she remembered this holding horse shoes. Wonderful little black painted tote is constructed from old crates. On front is etched designs and reads Fresno, California in fancy script. Handle looks like part of an old broom. What is more unique than these old handcrafted items? Forgot to measure this one, but approx. 10 or 12 inches square.
Great little sleeve board for ironing is wrapped in old newspapers, and on the bottom, the original label is still intact. Davis Manufacturing Co. Clinton, Maine. Measures 22 inches long by 4-1/4 inches wide and stands 6 inches tall.

Love this sweet little cart someone made using an old toy tractor's parts. Three wheels and a steering wheel originally from a tractor, and then a wooden platform was added. This makes a great little display in the garden with plenty of cargo space for flowers. SOLD!

My friends Wayne and Sue make wonderful furniture using old doors, and windows. We had the old door and frame left over from that 1800's fireplace cupboard. I sent it home with Wayne and he built this handy little storage cupboard. I painted the new wood a soft jade and left the original old door as is. Inside are a couple of shelves for storing canned goods or what have you. This measures 26-1/2 by 13 and stands 40 inches tall. Love the look! Sold!
