You are either going to love him, or hate him!

Everyone in the family thinks he's a little scary, but I can appreciate all the work that went into making him. All handcrafted of wood and cloth, this marionette is quite heavy. You would get a good workout just manipulating the strings, as he weighs about ten pounds. He is approx 26 inches in height, so bigger than most puppets you see. I know the rest of the family will be happy when he is out of the house and into the store! SOLD!

Wooden windmill for your garden

We seem to have a windmill theme going on this week! We also bought a bicycle with windmill on the chain guard (as seen in background Then when I carried these over to the front of the store, there were some wooden tulips from Leo! The windmill itself measures 29 inches tall but the blades extend a bit taller to about 3-1/2 feet high. Approx. 19 inches wide. SOLD!

Lovely Boston Pillowback chair for Pet Tails Rescue!

You may remember the cute little milk stool from last week that my friends Cindy and George Short donated for Pet Tails Rescue. I mentioned there was also a pillowback chair.

All money raised goes directly to saving lives of dogs and cats! I love the patina on this chair, it just has a wonderful look. Thank you so much Cindy and George, my animal loving friends! SOLD!

Cool vintage bike with windmill on chain guard

They called this a Danish bicycle when we bought it. It has the name Fiets Inn in three different places. When I researched that, it came up as a bicycle rental company in Holland.

Fill the baskets with flowers and hang them on the bike and you have a great garden piece!
