Last weekend, I sold the beautiful dark wooden mantel that was by the stove. I am going to miss it because I loved the way it looked in the store. I have the old make-do mantel shelf that was there before. Not quite the same, but I guess it will have to do until I can find another mantel sometime!
Mannequin is SOLD!

I was torn about this one! I need a cupboard at the top of my stairs in the house since I don't have much closet space. I almost kept this one, but decided to put it in the shop instead! Great rustic look. Front has wooden latch to keep door closed. Measures 31-1/2 inches wide by 16 inches deep and approx. 67 inches tall.

I love this little table. Has two clamps that will adjust in height so you can clamp anything down to be fixed. I have a whole assortment of clamps for fixing stuff, so I can see the value of this woodworking tool. This would come in very handy for someone. Also makes a cute display piece.

Get ready to celebrate the new year! We have an assortment of fun and festive glassware for all your toasting needs. Also, a collectible millennium blender. These were made for the year 2000 when everyone was so worried that we would lose power and suffer catastrophe! This blender runs on batteries so even if there was a huge power failure you could still mix your drinks. Sure to become a sought after item!

If you have the ceiling height, here is a great old wooden ladder for you! Nine and a half feet tall. Paint splatters just add to the character! Mine has been hanging horizontally from a beam in the store, so that's another way this can be used.

Love these old box cameras. I think the first thing I ever bought at an auction with my grandparents was a Brownie camera. I was about 7 or 8 years old, and I used it all the time. I wonder where mine went? These make a great inexpensive addition to a camera collection.

I think these would look great framed up, or even just tacked up. Cute vintage signs come with various sayings. I keep threatening to hang the one that says Garage for Rent near my son's garage "bachelor hangout" Maybe I should start charging the hooligans rent!

Hand made right here in NH. Beautiful evergreen swags with a choice of bows. These are part of our 20% off sale. Everything outside is 20% off. Help me clear the porch before it snows! I have spent four winters cleaning snow off all the stuff out there. This year I decided it would be easier to just take the things and put them away. Once I hear a forecast for a big snow, a lot of that stuff will be put into storage. If there is something you like, now is your chance to get it on sale!

I am calling these traverse sleds, although the auctioneer called them Travis sleds. By any name, they are cool. They were joined together at one time with a long plank of wood. They would be pulled by an oxen or horse and were used to haul things. I am selling the two pieces separately, but you could buy both if you wanted to!

When I bought this table it had a cloth tacked to the top. I was going to put an enamel top on this, but when I took the cloth off, I found these great painted boards and square nails! I like the look of it as is. Once again, Sasha in the lower corner is not for sale! She has had about enough of helping and wants to go back to the house! Can you just hear her asking "aren't we done yet?" SOLD!

A few more items from the barn in Kingston. Wonderful McCoy pieces made in USA. The pitcher is large and is perfect for the dinner table. My grandfather always had to have a pitcher of ice water on the table. No matter what was served for dinner, he always said "that's good water!" The bowl is very deep, and would make an excellent pasta dish, or could be used as a mixing bowl too. I have two pieces of McCoy that I bought back in 1977, and still use them both on a regular basis. They last and last and are pretty too! Pitcher is SOLD!

I wish I had found this back in September or October because the pumpkin color would have gone so well with Halloween items. But we all love these great little foot stools, as they are useful and decorative. They make a nice way to display something to give it a little height. SOLD!

I have seen several of these in country magazines over the past year. They are always used with a little snow and other pieces to make a winter vignette. This one is rather large and almost oval instead of round. The little log house and tree are mine, so the dome will be sold empty.

This is a large square wooden box with little feet. It is copper lined and has a drain hole. The auction company thought it had something to do with finishing maple syrup. Upon researching that, the box used for finishing would go over heat, so it is doubtful that this was used for that purpose. It has an interesting look to it though, and could be repurposed for something else equally wonderful.

My friend Clint and I were getting ready to set up to sell at Dover antique market for Weds. Dec. 1st antique market. He took this out of his car, and it never even made it inside. It went right to my car and home with me! I am drawn to these great old pulley wheels.
