Awesome large wooden model sailboat

Amazing handcrafted ship model. This is one of Barry's finds! He spent almost a whole day untangling the rigging, but the mast is missing, so he couldn't reattach any of the lines. There is one sail also included. This is WAY bigger than it looks in the photos! This is almost four feet long, 12 inches wide and stands 17-1/2 inches tall. This is very heavy duty and has lead weights on keel. The stand makes it very sturdy. Great display piece for a mantel! SOLD!

Farrier's box

I called it a farrier's box, but the woman I bought it from said cobbler's box. Either way, it was someone who worked with shoes! This measures 26 by 13 and stands 14 inches tall. SOLD!

Quirky little cabinet

Not sure if this was originally intended to be a sewing cabinet or what it was used for. I like the look of it though. Nice dentil trim molding, and a little latch to keep the front doors closed. This measures 26 by 12-1/2 and stands 20 inches tall. SOLD,

Painted up in some patriotic colors! This looks great standing or hanging. Measures 48 inches tall with a diameter of about 9 inches. Cool look!SOLD!

Hand carved wall hanging

Hand carved in 1987 (same year as my daughter's birth!) Carved from a log and sealed for protection with a clear, glossy sealant. Great old man with long beard. This has a hanging clasp on back. Forgot to measure. I say 18 inches tall, hubby says 24 inches. So somewhere in between the two!SOLD!

It's a woodie doll stroller with turquoise accents!

From my dear friends Ted and Arlene, this came from Connecticut. Adorable doll stroller reminds us of the old woodie station wagon. Wonderful turquoise accents too.

Tote with repairs and square nail construction

I buy and sell a lot of totes, but this is one of my all time favorites. I just love anything with a repair or two. Things were patched up as needed and kept in use. Handle broke at some point, so the webbing strap was added, and there is a metal patch inside as well. Made with square nails, and just has a wonderful look! Measures 18 by 9-1/2 and stands 5-3/4 inches tall at highest point. SOLD!
