Missy mannequin head and felt hat

Styrofoam head has a plastic sleeve that makes up the pretty face. back of head is plain styrofoam. Kind of different! Lovely vintage felt hat with large felted flower on front. Bought the hat and then the head arrived a day later. Strange the way that works out sometimes! Both are SOLD!

Hardware bins with display shelves

Very versatile. This great little cubby shelf could be used so many ways. Measures 36 inches across by 43 inches tall. Top shelf front to back is 11 inches. Bottom bins are a bit wider at 16 inches. Hinged lid allows bins to be covered if desired. Great look! SOLD!

Two boxes

Smaller box is marked with shipping details, came from NY and went to Plymouth, NH. Measures 18 by 10 by 9. Larger box with lid maybe an egg or dairy crate? Has dovetailed corners and measures12 by 18 by 10. Both are SOLD!

Double sided Antiques sign

Just love the look of this double sided sign with hanging bracket. Hang up for very cool art or if you need a sign for a business, this just needs to be repainted. The other side is less chippy, but that's the look I go for, so that is the side I showed. Bracket measurements are 29-1/2 by 23 and the sign inside is 22 by 18 inches. This would have been a good second choice name for my store because I have lots of cobwebs! SOLD!

Love this red fork!

Not sure what this was used for. It looks like an industrial sized wash stick, and I just love the red paint on it. Measures 55 inches tall. SOLD!

Pails and more pails

Two on top step are heavy duty and rusty. One has a wooden handle. The middle two are sap buckets, and come with old sap taps. One of the sap buckets has had holes drilled in the bottom. Bottom step is a galvanized pail. They look great holding a mum! Two sap pails are SOLD!

Two ladders, one short, one tall!

These wooden stepladders make great displays, or still sturdy enough to use! Tall one is 68-1/2 inches, and short one is 21 inches tall. Ladders are SOLD!

Looks like an ordinary odd shaped box.........

This box measures 44-1/2 by 5-1/2. Narrow end is 9-1/2 inches wide and wider end is 15-1/2 inches. Not sure what the original purpose was. Three latches keep the lid closed, but when you open it........SOLD!


Box can be purchased seperately from the skeleton! SOLD!

Witch's boots!

I try to find these throughout the year and save them for the Halloween season. I have to give my sister in law credit for showing me this idea! SOLD!

Love the patina on this baby!

This has layers of different colored paints. The look they try to reproduce, but here is the real thing. If I was keeping it, I would be tempted to put a clear coat on it, because the paint is flaking off a bit. The inside is even a neat color! Wonderful old hardware too. Measures 29 by 8-1/2 and stands 7-3/4 inches tall. SOLD!

Galvanized steamer pot with lift out tray

The man who sold this to me was in his 80's and he says he remembers his mother using it! I always love to hear the history on an item. I have seen plenty of these big steamer pots but never had one with the lift out tray. Very cool! Pot measures approx. 20-1/2 by 10 and is 10 inches tall not counting the height on the lid. SOLD!

Old painted door panel with chalkboard center

This old painted door panel has been repurposed as a message center! Write messages in style! 12 by 46 inches. SOLD!

Divco Milk truck grill

I had to talk my husband into this one! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It was hiding under some lumber in an old barn filled with critters, and a huge flock of pigeons along the rafters and beams. I didn't care much for the barn, so I let my husband handle the transaction. I was quite happy to see him coming out the door carrying this! A little dented, a little chippy, but that is what gives it such character!

Long handled ash sifter

I love this one. I sell lots of ash sifters without handles, but this is pretty neat with it's long handle. The sifter is 13-1/2 inches in diameter and the handle is 65 inches long. SOLD!

Old Dutch cleanser crate made into cubby shelf

This needs to be displayed where both sides are visible, because the back is just as cool as the front! Measures 20 by 9-3/4 inches and 3 inches deep.


Soapstone bedwarmer has it's own little wooden case with carrying handle. Red slatted front and solid wooden back. Case is 10-1/4 by 8 inches. SOLD!

Pop goes the weasel.....

Poor little guy has a happy grin. Guess the taxidermist wanted to make him perpetually cheerful. The log he is mounted on is approx. 20 inches long. SOLD!

Laundry wringer

The thing I like about this one is that it is free standing. Someone mounted it on heavy boards to go over the washbucket and it now stands on it's own. Ready to display in your prim laundry room! Nice graphics still visible. SOLD!
