Each week I show a few highlights on website. But I also continuously add smalls. On an average weekend, 50-100 new items come in. I often buy throughout the weekend or take from my storage areas. So, there is always something new to find, like this sample of some smalls new for the week!

Wall hanging lavabo used for washing hands, often in churches. I had just seen one of these online a few days ago planted with flowers and then I find this one! Made in the United Arab Republic. A union between Egypt and Syria that only lasted from 1958-1961. Two pieces hang separately, and could be planted with flowers as shown. Water tank is 15 inches tall and the basin is 13 inches wide. Sorry for any confusion, the white piece with flowers is there just to show how this might be used for planting. I do not have the white piece! SOLD!

This is one of those things that the pictures don't do justice to. Must be seen in person to appreciate the unique qualities of this piece! Hollowed from one piece of wood and has lovely stenciling on all sides. Old iron spigot. The pump handle bracket has been replaced and may have been metal at one time. Very cool, and would make a fantastic garden piece or displayed indoors to protect the wood! This is very tall, well over six feet tall. SOLD!

Two rows of metal grids allow air to circulate through to dry berries. Fantastic look with the red paint on outside edges. This could hang on the wall or use as a display on counter or table. Measures 19 by 11 and is 2-1/2 inches thick.

This seems to have been used as the lid for something, maybe a refrigerated bin? Tin on one side with fabulous rusty patina. The other side is wooden and covered with old wallpaper. Also has amazing strap hinges. This is heavy and measures 16 by 50 inches and the door is 2 inches thick. SOLD!

Some things just call out to be photographed outside on our old Dodge truck! The paint and patina just go together. This is heavy and has a metal ring for lifting. The diameter of the lid is 15 inches and the first part of the lid is 2 inches thick and second piece is also 2 inches thick. Very cool! SOLD!

Love these old wooden measures. These are not perfect, but still have a great look. I didn't see a mark in either one. The larger of the two is 6-1/4 inches tall and has a diameter of 11 inches. The smaller is 5-1/2 inches tall and has a diameter of 9 inches. Measures are SOLD!

If you follow me on facebook, you may have already seen this. If not, here it is! Very unique metal tub with wooden bottom. Has two carrying handles on ends. This is 52 inches long, and is 26 inches wide at widest point, and 13 at narrowest point. You could fill this with cool water on these hot summer nights and enjoy a moonlight bath outdoors! I can also see this filled with ice and drinks at a party! SOLD!
