Butter Worker's Table

I am always drawn to these, fascinated by the gears and of course, the wonderful patina on the old wood. This butter worker's table measures 44 inches long and 29 inches wide including the gear and handle. It stands 33 inches tall to top of tray. Love the look! SOLD!

Boxes, boxes, boxes!

A whole pile of various boxes. Long red box measures 31-1/2 by 13 and is 4 inches high. Machine boxes are approx. 19 by 7 and 5-1/2 inches tall. I love the paper label and as I cleaned out one, it had the address for New England Knife Co. Worcester, MA. These were used to ship machine knives. Very cool! Also, the gray box, I was told came from an old wooden Chris Craft boat. Not sure where or how it was used, but that is the story! All boxes are SOLD!

Fan belt rack

I believe this was originally used in a garage to hold fan belts, but this could be used in so many other ways, scarves, linens, leashes (around here, it would just about hold all my leashes!) you name it. Chippy black paint. 36 inches long. SOLD!

Adorable chippy highchair

Sweet little highchair with chippy black paint and stencil design on back. Love it with the folk art doll that was donated by Sharon Kelly for Pet Tails Rescue! All proceeds from the purchase of the doll go directly to help the animals! Chair is 37-1/2 inches tall and 16 inches wide. Doll is Sold for Pet Tails Rescue!

I think the squirrels have gotten to this birdfeeder!

Well chewed, but still a great garden piece. My friends Donna and Al decorate inside with birdhouses and I think they look wonderful indoors. Or you can use this outside or on a porch. Rustic look! 19 by 10 inches and 9 inches tall. SOLD!

The weird and wonderful!

Some things just speak to me. Found this in my friend's barn sale. I loved it instantly but had to call my husband upstairs to see if he knew what it was. He believes it is the wire that was used in automotive upholstery. A big roll of it, I measured around the outer edge and that was 57 inches, so there are lots and lots of feet of this material. I think it looks awesome in a coil, but it can probably be reused somehow by one of my amazing customers! SOLD!

Hazel Atlas child's tea set

Those of you who know me, know I don't buy a lot of glassware, but how could I resist this little sweetheart of a set? In near perfect condition, there are four little cups and saucers in such pretty pastel colors, plus a sugar bowl and creamer. It was probably hardly played with, if at all! SOLD!

Fabulous primitive cover

One of my most favorite things in a long time! A friend came by to sell me some wooden boxes, and I saw this in the back of his truck and had to have it! We believe it was the cover to a smoker as the back is quite charred. Very primitive look and what a fantastic old handle on it too! Measures 16 by 14-1/2 inches. This would look great just propped up somewhere on a shelf or table. SOLD!

Doll's armoire!

Adorable and made of cardboard! This little armoire is twelve inches tall, and 9-3/4 inches wide. 4-1/2 inches deep. I just think it's the cutest thing! The hinges are made of brass.

Set of four small nesting mixing bowls

Made in England, no maker's mark. Spent an hour trying to find something similar to these online with no luck. Very small set of nesting bowls. The biggest is only 7 inches in diameter with the smallest only 5 inches in diameter. Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. SOLD!

Old wooden buggy seat

Nice red wash on this old buggy seat. Has some damage along the top corner on back side, but really only visible from the back. Very sturdy and measures 48 inches across and 17 inches front to back. Stands 16 inches tall at highest point. Metal brackets are still intact. These make wonderful country displays! SOLD!

Humpty Dumpty egg carrier

Marked Humpty Dumpty on one side and has a Blake's creamery tag from Manchester, NH. SOLD!


4 gallon stoneware crock, not perfect, has a few chips and hairline fracture, but still good for indoor display. Adorable little one handled beanpot with lid, and number one. I love the size and look of this one! Crock and beanpot are SOLD!

Wallpaper hanger's brackets

Sturdy little folding brackets were used by wallpaper hangers to hold the board they would have to cut or paste the wallpaper on. These would be great if you set up at shows. They fold up flat and will hold a long board. Shown here with a very heavy plank on top. They stand 34 inches tall. SOLD!

Wooden extension plank

These were used as scaffolding for wallpapering or painting. The whole things slides apart to extend out. When closed it is 6 feet, 2 inches long, and when it is opened it just about would double in length. Very heavy, would make a cool shelf if you had some sturdy old brackets. Has one taped slat where it must have cracked. SOLD!

Wooden stepladder

Fabulous green paint on this old wooden stepladder. These make great displays! This one stands 56 inches tall and is nice and sturdy.SOLD!

Hit the mother lode of doilies at Monday's auction!

Just beautiful, handcrafted lace doilies in all shapes and sizes. Nice and clean and they came all so conveniently packaged up in protective plastic sleeves. This is just a drop in the bucket. Many, many more to choose from, and reasonably priced! They are shown here on my red snowflake tablecloth, there aren't any that are shaped like snowflakes (just to avoid any confusion!)

Very cool metal industrial wheels!

These wheels came from a large industrial bandsaw. The bandsaw was 70 inches in length! We have one of the large wheels, which is 36 inches in diameter. The smaller wheel is 6 inches in diameter and we only have one, plus the two knobs. All are metal and have a greenish chippy paint. The larger wheel has a black band around the outside. Great industrial look! All SOLD!

Newton, NH one room schoolhouse desk

This little child's desk came from the one room schoolhouse in Newton, NH. Top lifts up and it has great storage inside. Also a pencil rack on top and inkwell hole. Comes with the little glass inkwell. I purchased the chair separately because the chair that originally came with the desk had a missing piece on the base. So the chair is not from the same school, but they look great together! SOLD!

Let's go fishing!

Old Pal minnow bucket, has a great design on the punched tin lid. Also, neat graphics on front. This is also one of the smallest frog or eel spears I have had! The handle is 6 feet 5 inches long. Minnow bucket is SOLD!

Wooden shovel

Cool old primitive! Wooden shovel. Those oldtimers sure used to work hard, didn't they? SOLD!

These candy boxes won't interfere with your New Year's resolution!

All empty except for the conversation hearts, which is still full of candy, and in it's wrapper. I have had some of these, but recently acquired more. They make a great display, and no calories!
