Rustic and shabby, just the way I like 'em!

Rustic charm gives this small imperfect table perfect character. Great old blue paint with traces of red. I did not measure anything out there, but this is on the smaller size. SOLD!

Fantastic wooden form sweater stretcher

photos don't do this justice! Old wooden form for sweater stretching by Best and CO. New York. Still has drying instructions and original label for price. Very cool with a great prim look! SOLD!

Junior says "Hook me up!!!!"

Unique little metal framed goat cart with wooden seat and foot rest. The wheels are not original to the cart. This also comes with a bin of harnesses, including this adorable goat collar. I would love to put Junior to work, but he's really too much of a diva to do any manual labor! SOLD!

Tiny battery operated lantern

This is very small, maybe 4 inches tall. I forgot to measure anything today! Marked Japan on base. We put batteries in and it works! This is about the size of a skater's lantern, but battery operated, not kerosene. So cute!

Wooden shoe rack on wheels

I love the way these look in my store, and they make a great display. This one is in excellent condition with no broken slats. I believe it came from a shoe factory in Exeter, NH. There are some graphics on both side slats, which is hard to read, but I think it may say heels? SOLD!

Repurposers!! A perfect birdbath!

This brass and copper colored metal bowl is 15 inches in diameter. If you have a cool wooden or metal post, this would make a fabulous birdbath! Circa late 1950's SOLD!

Cow Creamers!

I love seeing a group of just about anything together! Instant collection. I don't buy a lot of breakables, but I do love these old cow creamers. Most are marked Japan, and one is unmarked.

Funky little cabinet

I seriously considered turning this into some kind of Halloween cabinet, but then decided maybe the new owner would rather give it the finishing touches. I'm not sure what it was originally intended for. Top section has two doors and there are shelf brackets there to hold some type of narrow shelf. Bottom has two drawers which are dovetailed. It's hard to see the dovetail detail under the black paint, but there are wide dovetails. Someone hand painted the eagles, but it was not done recently. Nice little cabinet with storage capabilities. Measures 36 inches wide by 19 inches deep and stands 29 inches tall. both sides have some veneer damage at base.

Very cool Woosterline taxidermy white tail deer head forms

Used by taxidermists under the deer hide to form a wall mount. They now use Styrofoam forms, so these are the vintage style made of wood and paper mache. I love the look! One has glass eyes! This is my kind of stuff, a little weird and creepy! There are two! sOLD!

Stack of vintage suitcases!

Top has a pinup girl inside cover! All in well used condition! SOLD!

Get your back to school calculator!

Cool old adding machine in a dark turquoise color looks great in an office. Had a power plug at one time, now missing.

Another tool box!

I just can't resist buying these! This primitive looking tool box measures 33-1/2 by 10-1/2 and stands 14-1/2 inches tall. They make great displays! SOLD!

Check out the auction for this piece on my facebook page!

Having a little fun on my facebook page with an online auction for this cool old drawer front. I was afraid this would be one of those pieces that several people might want. So, I decided to run a little auction and it will go to the highest bidder. The auction ends tomorrow (Thursday, August 14th) at 9 a.m. See my page for more details!

Wonderful one board top on this table!

Not the original legs, but still a nicely married piece. One wide board top gives this table a really primitive look. This measures 46-1/2 by 23 and stands 29 inches tall. SOLD!

Metal buckets!

Large galvanized washtub has a red wash for a cool look! Four painted sap buckets, perfect for planting. It's almost time for mums! Red washtub is SOLD.

Pretty pine four drawer bureau

Nice oldie, has two repaired drawers, so not original but sturdy. Other two drawers have dovetailed corners. This measures 38-1/2 by 17 and stands 35 inches tall. SOLD!

Rustic tool tote

These are always popular, so I keep buying them! This one measures 23-1/2 by 10 by approx. 9 inches tall. Has an old repair for great character. Great prim look! SOLD!

Cake tin

Love the graphics on this cake tin! They look great up on top of a cupboard or cabinet! SOLD!

Large rectangular wire basket with handles. Similar to the old gym baskets, but no numbered tag! SOLD!

I have a whole pile of cool keys. Skeleton keys, baby skeleton keys, clock keys, roller skate keys, safe keys, you name it, we have it! Lots to choose from! These three sets are SOLD!

Cute little painted glue bucket

This is sporting a fairly new coat of blue paint, but still adorable! This glue bucket has a bale handle and is 7 inches tall and 7 inches in diameter. SOLD!

Standard gas range made in Salmon Falls, NH

I just said to my husband, we haven't had an old cook stove for a while, and then along comes this one! I love having these in the store, and they make wonderful displays for a store or restaurant. This one needs some minor repairs, the left side has a piece missing from the base. We have the piece but it had been broken off. Also, the front nickel piece of trim is cracked. Some of the knobs are missing their ornamental hanging pieces, but all in all, it's a cute little stove and still shows nicely with things displayed atop it! This is on the smaller side, and measures 3 feet wide and 28 inches front to back and stands 53 inches tall to top of display shelf. This was made in Salmon Falls, NH by the Standard Range Co.
