Drop leaf table

One of my husband's friends saw me cleaning this and recommended a certain type of paint stripper. I said "no way, we don't want to take this paint off, this is the look people want!" He was shocked. I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Adorable child's ironing board

Sweet little child's ironing board with old cloth cover. Folds flat for storage. Love the look!

Pine one drawer table

Cute little one drawer pine table. Has nicely turned legs and finials front and back. A couple of my customers have already commented this morning that this is one of the few pieces I have had that is not all chipped up. They know me too well!

Tiger's oak chest

This beautiful tiger's oak chest with mirror has been in the shop for about a month, but I was unable to take good photos of it, (due to lack of maneuvering room and my photography skills!) The consigner has supplied these wonderful pictures, so now it can be viewed online. This is just a gorgeous piece!


Dovetail joints on drawer

Great dovetail joints!

Detail on drawers

The beautiful tiger stripes can be seen here in close up detail.

Architectural Pieces

Cool old architectural pieces. Different colors, sizes, and designs.


An assortment of finials. Great for projects!
Finials are all SOLD!

Dad's tandem bike

This was my dad's bike that he bought when he got out of the service. We hung it way up high to keep it safe. (Not for sale, my sister would disown me!)

Stepback cupboard with glass doors

Beautiful stepback cupboard with 3 drawers on bottom, a wonderful counter top for display and then two glass doors with 3 shelves. This just has an amazing look to it. I had a lot of fun finding things to display in it. Because it's red and black, anything red looks great, but I also like the tin and wire ware with it.

Chatillon fruit scale

Yet another wonderful hanging scale. This one is by Chatillon, and looks like it's even in balance.

Rustic desk or workbench

I bought this thinking I would display tools on it because it's pretty rugged. One of my customers saw it though and said I should definitely display desk items instead. So, here it is, and whoever buys it can do it whatever they want with it!

Berry tote with 4 berry baskets

Rectangular berry tote with handle comes with four little berry baskets. I am showing it with blueberries, but they are not included.

painted medicine cabinet

Great little painted medicine cabinet with that chipped look we love. Has a couple of shelves inside.

New this week!

A large assortment of lamp burners and some glass chimneys. Some of these burners are old, and may be of the harder to find variety. If you have a lamp that needs a part, this may be your chance to find it!

Large tobacco basket

In very good condition. Usually these have broken or cracked slats, but this one is pretty well preserved. Approx. 28 inches by 28 inches.

Fairbanks scale

You know I can never resist a scale! Here is another fabulous find. Fairbanks scale with nice yellow platform.
I also picked up an old doctor's scale, but lack of room will prevent that one from being in the store for now.

Mortar and pestle

Old mortar and pestle, has some cracks due to age or use, but still a fantastic display piece. SOLD!

Tin foot warmer

Direct from a local attic! I love these great old tin foot warmers. Wonderful look.

Keystone Bowling Alley

Tru-Scale bowling alley made by Keystone Co. Boston, MA. The alley has a beautiful wooden lane with great patina. This is 8-1/2 feet long, and if you have been in my store, then you know it was hard to find a place to display this! Has all pins and wooden balls. Stands on legs that fold down for flat storage. Lots of fun!

Happy Mother's Day!

We will be closed this Sunday, May 9th so that my kids can spoil ME for a change! Open Saturday, May 8th, 10-5. Happy Mother's Day

Grinding wheel

Everyone loves these for the garden. Perfect Mother's day gift, or for your own garden.

Child's table and chairs

Was blue at one time and then painted yellow. Now it's a lovely combination of the two. Great look with the blue paint showing through.

Folding stepstool in red (and other colors)

This is a well used little folding stepstool. I had some plants sitting on it, so it could be used in a garden, or inside too. Paint splattered!

Totem box

Wonderful little advertising box with Totem label. Held cigars. Box measures approx. 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches.

Chatillon scale

I am such a sucker for scales. Any size, any shape, it doesn't matter. This is a great Chatillon spring balance scale. Nice brass finish that someone was good enough to polish up for me. SOLD!

Tacky pink flamingoes!

There must be someone that you don't like and you can put these on their lawn as a joke! Vintage style.

Apple picker

Cute little apple picker. This is the shortest one I have ever had. Usually I would buy one of these, and they would have such long handles that they barely fit in my car. This one is only about 3 feet long.

Breezy Knoll Farm box

Great Breezy Knoll Farm box from Acton, Mass.
Divided inside, and probably used as an egg crate.
