How cute are these guys?

Adorable little vintage chalkware garden gnomes. They stand approx. 7-1/2 inches tall. My mother-in-law used to have a whole set of these in her garden, and these reminded me of her!

Sweet children's ironing board and iron

Perfect red color on this metal child's ironing board and iron. Also, some tea stained flags in time for the 4th of July weekend. Flags are sold out!

White Mountain Apple Peeler

Vintage White Mountain apple peeler made in Antrim, NH. Cool old tool, and I will even include the apple if you like it!

Tabletop wooden ironing board

This would make an awesome piece to add height to anything you want to display. It measures 42 inches long and is 16 inches wide at widest point. It stands 5-1/2 inches tall. Wonderful primitive look.

Wooden screen

I love this wooden screen. It has two small knobs which are great for hanging things from, like this wildflower wreath! The screen measures 17-1/4 by 17-1/4.

Fun vintage games

Chinese checkers with wooden frame and heavy duty cardboard playing surface. Also an old rollin' checkers game with what appear to be clay marbles used as playing pieces.
Chinese checkers are SOLD!

Pretty red metal step stool with two steps that swing up and under the seat. Great for displaying items or use to reach things that are too high!

Blue enamel funnel

Awesome enamel funnel. I have a collection of enamel funnels, but mine are all white and much smaller, or else this would be added to the shelf! This one is big, 6 inches in diameter with just the perfect amount of wear.

Fun find at a Saturday barn sale!

Awesome hen nester has opening in back where the chickens would get in and an opening in the front where the eggs could be gathered from. I came home with this and wanted to put it in the store right away. I just couldn't wait! The rooster is guarding the brood!

Sent my husband to buy a window, and he found this too!

You just never know when you are going to find a fabulous treasure. Old stall doors with a nameplate for the horse which would hang above the stall. Great detailing, still has old hinges on one side, plus a leather strap for pulling, and my favorite part, the little wooden latch. It has amazing patina. Door has a wonderful look to it. I have seen these in country magazines used on a wall for display. I know my own daughter would have wanted one in her room when she was 11 or so. She is still horse crazy, but her decorating style has changed!

Vintage baby clothes

I don't usually buy linens, but couldn't resist these beautiful vintage baby clothes. The first one on the line is flannel, and my favorite piece. Love the simplicity of it! These came from Berlin, NH.
Dress on right is sold! Flannel on left is sold! But we have more!

Adorable child's watering can and a frog

I love this cute little child's watering can in old green paint. Also a ceramic frog that is new, but would be adorable in your garden.
Watering can is SOLD!
Frog is SOLD!

Primitive ironing board

Nice wide top perfect for display. Folds flat when not needed. Also makes a wonderful piece for a painting project if you are artistically inclined! Board is 54 inches long and is 14 inches wide at widest point.

An assortment of enamel ware

Two pans with handles on each side. One has a brown ring around the top, and the other has green. Also a white pitcher with black trim. These pitchers look so pretty with wildflowers in them!
Pitcher is SOLD!

Red metal cranberry rake

Great look to this rake. Wooden handle with a metal top. Row of teeth measures 22 inches wide. Red paint. I was told this was used for cranberries.

Sewing table

Cute little folding table, commonly used for sewing projects. This one does not have a yardstick along the back edge, but has the same look as the other sewing tables. Legs fold down for storage. Measures 36 inches wide, by 18 inches deep and stands 26 inches tall.

14 foot chestnut hand hewn apple picking ladder


Just added this afternoon! What a great find! 14 feet tall, made of chestnut, and hand hewn for such a beautiful look. These are getting harder and harder to find, especially in such good condition, with no cuts, breaks, or repairs. Fantastic patina, each rung was hand hewn, as well as the two sides. If you have a cathedral ceiling, this would look wonderful leaning against the wall. They also look amazing going up a staircase as the hand railing. I wanted to get this on the website, and the sun is setting behind the store, so not the optimal time to take photos, but trust me, it is gorgeous in person.

What a find!

Amazing architectural art! These signs are so hot in all the country magazines. They are being used in the place of traditional art. They look fabulous on a large wall. This is double sided tin, and the back has a little tinge of blue to the lettering. This is quite large, measuring 3 feet by 5 feet across and 2-1/2 inches thick. What a fantastic look this has.

Jelly cupboard

Wonderful jelly cupboard with wire on door. Perfect for displaying all your country treasures. Measures 69-1/2 inches tall, and is 33 inches wide and 17 inches deep.

Box shaped like a factory!

My husband picked this one for the shop. I told him it was one of my favorite things so far that he has found. Very cool box with lid is shaped like a factory. Reads Union Metallic Cartridge Company. The back has been cut in a few places, but it looks fantastic up on a shelf as shown here. Measures 20 inches by 10 inches and stands 10 inches tall.

Pretty old wooden wheelbarrow, missing sides, but perfect for displaying a large pot of summer flowers, or pumpkins in the fall. Front has graphics for Simmons hardware.

Tea stained bunting

These beautiful buntings are tea stained to give them a nice old fashioned appeal. They measure 32 inches across the top. Just in time for summer decorating!

Father's day gift ideas!

Old school metal wheelbarrow, and just think the tire never needs air! Dad will appreciate that.

Go green with this Craftsman trimmer

Dad won't need to buy gas for this great old Craftsman trimmer. Nice graphics on handle and still works like it was brand new!

Extra large funnel

Perfect for Dad to use to change his oil! Also makes a great display piece on a shelf in his garage. Nice traces of red paint around the base.

Having fun with our cowboy tub!

My friend brought over some cowboy boots and hat, and we dragged out our old Halloween skeleton. We think it's funny, but so far the reactions have been mixed!

Red Chatillon scale

Adding to our collection of scales is this beautiful red Chatillon. Everyone loves red!


Another favorite find

LOVE IT!! This folky old chest is made of shipping crates, some are Necco wafer crates, and some are from a woolen manufacturing company. Top is hinged and lifts up, and the chest has two drawers. Top drawer is divided. This has such a fabulous look to it. It measures approx. 34 inches wide, by 15 inches front to back and 20 inches tall. This would be perfect for a coffee table and would also have great storage for TV remotes, etc.


And the back is awesome too!

My favorite part is that is partially made of old Necco wafer shipping crates. This is the back, and there is another part of Necco wafer box on front drawer, but it is harder to see.

Has anyone seen my parakeet?

I originally bought this for my own garden. I love the bent and mangled look of it. The whole bottom is missing, perfect to place over a plant. I decided to hang it in the store for a while as a joke. It has a note on it asking if anyone has seen my parakeet.


Heavy duty filing cabinet

My friend scored this fabulous find at a barn sale. I was so envious that she let me put it in the shop! This industrial look is hot right now. Several drawers and they are all full with file cards from various business accounts. This cabinet is HEAVY, I think it must weigh at least sixty pounds or more. Measures 24 inches long, by 8 inches wide (long and narrow) and stands 21-1/2 inches tall.
