Some wonderful salvaged pieces from dressers or mirrors, etc. These would make great signs. The average measurement is 42 inches across by 6 inches high. One has a really cool metal decoration in ONE corner only. Wish it had both! All SOLD!

For an electrician, to carry tools. I think it would look so cute with plants planted in it, especially with some hanging ivy! Two reinforced holes on back for hanging. Bottom is also predrilled for drainage! Measures approx. 14 by 7 by 9 inches tall at back. SOLD!

Purina poultry feeding tube. The back has a chart that tells how many turkeys, ducks, or chickens the tube will feed. Well rusted piece! Love the red and white checkerboard on the tube. Galvanized feeding ring at bottom. There is no bottom as the feed must have poured directly out from bottom. This has an 8-1/2 inch diameter and stands 27 inches tall. I'm very tempted to keep this one as I love old chicken stuff so much! SOLD!

Great pine mantel, not too heavy, makes a great display. This has a faux brick (made of wood) insert which is not attached, so if you don't want to use it, you don't have to. If you do want to use it, then it will screw into the back of the fireplace. Mantel measures 53-1/2 inches wide at widest part, by 11-1/2 inches front to back and stands 4 feet tall. SOLD!

Not sure what this was used for, but could have been a planter or a chicken feeder. Seemed there were some slight chicken traces left behind! Took a picture of this from the front so the length could be seen and appreciated. It is just under 11 feet long! Five inches front to back and 4-1/2 inches tall at back which is the highest part. Has metal hanging hooks if you wanted to hang it. SOLD!

Here is the piece I had to take four other pieces out of the store to fit in. This is one massive workbench. The top is very thick slabs of lumber, and solid chunky legs too. Ten feet long by 29 inches wide and stands 33 inches to top of workbench with another 4 inches on back piece. I just love the way these display things in my store, very rustic and primitive look, plus it holds so much!

I love, love, love this! We found it at Brimfield. My son had been telling me to haggle, though I do get deals in my own nice way. I never want to offend anyone! So, when I saw this, I thought I would give him a challenge. I gave him some cash and told him to go and get the best deal he could on it. He did very well and then he got rewarded by having to carry it around with us until we got back to the truck! A lesson learned! This is so cool. I have never seen one on legs before. We got a lot of inquiries about it as we were walking around. This is 47 by 21 inches and stands 28-1/2 inches tall. Galvanized feeder with wooden roosts for chicken and metal legs. SOLD!

I found these at Brimfield. That is one of the things I love about Brimfield, you never know what you will find. These were used for making jewelry, but I love them for their graphic appeal. Some have a hole in center so it could be hung on the wall. Two sizes, they are 9 and 10 inches in diameter. They are made of some composite material or possibly hard rubber.SOLD!

Wishing everyone a happy Mother's day. We will be closed this Sunday, May 12th. Usually the kids and I go buy all the flowers for all the windowboxes and planters, and then we plant them. It's my favorite Mother's day gift because not only do I spend time with my kids, but the work gets done by everyone. This year my sister and her family are here from Oregon and we will all be together for the first time in many years on Mother's day. Hope all you moms have a fabulous day!
