Each week I show a few highlights on website. But I also continuously add smalls. On an average weekend, 50-100 new items come in. I often buy throughout the weekend or take from my storage areas. So, there is always something new to find, like this sample of some smalls new for the week!

bowls and spool of twine are sold!

The old A & P grocery cart

Wooden cart used in A&P grocery stores. Made by the United Box and Basket Company. This measures 20 by 27 by 18 inches tall. Love the old graphics, front and back. Has canvas handles. SOLD!

My favorite find of the week! Brass and coppertone lavabo

Wall hanging lavabo used for washing hands, often in churches. I had just seen one of these online a few days ago planted with flowers and then I find this one! Made in the United Arab Republic. A union between Egypt and Syria that only lasted from 1958-1961. Two pieces hang separately, and could be planted with flowers as shown. Water tank is 15 inches tall and the basin is 13 inches wide. Sorry for any confusion, the white piece with flowers is there just to show how this might be used for planting. I do not have the white piece! SOLD!

Wonderful old water pump!

This is one of those things that the pictures don't do justice to. Must be seen in person to appreciate the unique qualities of this piece! Hollowed from one piece of wood and has lovely stenciling on all sides. Old iron spigot. The pump handle bracket has been replaced and may have been metal at one time. Very cool, and would make a fantastic garden piece or displayed indoors to protect the wood! This is very tall, well over six feet tall. SOLD!

Minty green bookcase

Totally forgot to measure this one, but love the color! Has some room under the shelves for storing a larger object, like the trunk shown.

Handy folding drying rack

Folds up nice and neat to make for compact storage. Perfect for poolside towel drying or indoors for things that can't go in dryer. Also makes a nice linen display in a shop! SOLD!

Canvas coal tote

These were used to haul about 30 pounds of coal to houses, carried on back of coal man. This 18 inches tall and has a diameter of 21 inches. SOLD!
