Unique bobbin storage rack

Bottom piece is a wooden framed tray with metal or some composite material on base. On top of that sits a metal rack with grids and spindles to hold bobbins. Comes with several old wooden bobbins. Only one still has thread, but there are some empty spindles, so bobbins with thread could be added in. The base tray measures 18-1/2 by 11-1/2.

Large primitive hopper bin

This appears to be a make do, using some old crates as there is some lettering on one inside board. They used some beautiful old red paint on one tiny section. How I wish they had kept going! There is a handwritten date of Feb. 12 1923 so it's almost 100 years old! This measures 18 by 24 inches and is 11 inches tall. This could be used seasonally, in the fall to hold pumpkins, winter greens, springtime displays, etc. It makes a wonderful centerpiece for anytime! SOLD!

Small wooden cabinet

When we first saw this, we thought it was made of metal, but it is in fact all wood. Chippy paint in a couple different colors. The wood beneath is quite lovely if someone wanted to bring it back to natural. This adorable cabinet is 16 by 11-1/4 and stands 42 inches tall. Sold!

Horses on barn wood

I bought the two metal horses recently and had some old wood pieces that came from a horse barn, and thought they went together well! They have sawtooth hangers on back. Green board measures 21 by 8 and chippy board measures 24 by 7-1/4 inches. Green board is sold! Both horses are sold!

Sweet little cottage table

Just the right amount of chippy crazing on the legs of this little table! It looks pink in photos, but is more of an off white color. Spindle legs and one drawer. Measures 24 by 15-1/2 and stands 27 inches tall. SOLD!

Ice fishing sled

This is a cool handcrafted ice fishing sled. An old divided crate was added to a sheet of metal and voila, it slides easily through the snow or across the ice! If you don't fish, then another use for this would be a great log or kindling holder for a camp or lodge themed room. I can picture this on a porch or next to the wood stove. I remembered I had some vintage ice fishing pop ups and added them to the back. This cutie measures 30-1/2 inches long, 19-1/2 inches wide and is 15-1/2 inches tall.

Wonderful enamel top table and four chairs

I just love this set! The enamel top table has such pretty details. The two leaves slide up and out for extended room and then easily slide back beneath the middle section for a compact look. Four wooden chairs are painted white and black to match not only the table but the Hoosier which completes the set and can be seen in next post. This was purchased new by the former owner! Such a sweet set, would love to see it stay together but will separate the table/chairs from the Hoosier if someone wants one or the other. The table measures 39-1/2 long by 24-1/2 wide with leaves stored below. With leaves extended, the table would have an extra 10 inches on each side. Stands 31 inches tall. SOLD!

Sweet matching Hoosier cabinet

This is the lightest Hoosier we have ever had to move! As we are getting a little older, these things are quite noticeable and appreciated! Also comes in two sections of course, for such easy moving. The flour bin is intact and also a nice tin bread drawer! Storage beneath and two big shelves on top for holding all the kitchen goodies! Black trim around the enamel top, which is in excellent condition! The Hoosier measures 40 wide by 22 deep and 69 inches tall. SOLD!

Rustic cabinet

This cabinet was being used as a catchall for hardware. The drawers were chock full. It has some great chippy paint! Measures 32 inches long, 18 inches wide and is 24 inches tall.

Unique child's Victrola in cabinet

We have never seen one of these, in fact we didn't even know they made Victrolas for children! This is in a wonderful wooden cabinet with birds and other graphics. The crank handle still turns and will get the turntable spinning, but the arm that holds the needle needs to be replaced. I wish I could have heard this work! This is made in Germany by Grande co. The cabinet measures approx. 12 by 12 and stands 26 inches tall. There are two doors below for storage. SOLD!

Spice rack with porcelain spice bottles

Lovely spice rack with Griffiths porcelain bottles and metal caps to hold spices. Hard to find a complete set! Sold!

1930's dress form/mannequin

Love this lumpy lady! Base is wooden and torso is some kind of composite, almost a super heavy duty paper mache! She stands 61 inches tall. Comes apart in three sections for easy transport. SOLD!

Heavy brass boat rudder

Fabulous patina on this old brass rudder. This is heavy and weighs about 18-20 pounds. The rudder is 40 inches long including post and is 12 inches wide at widest part. SORRY-DRAWERS AND EGG BOX NOT FOR SALE!! Rudder is SOLD!

Primitive stool

I am thinking this was used for shining shoes. This little cutie measures 19-1/2 inches long and 10 inches wide at widest part, and stands 9-1/2 inches tall. SOLD!

Metal trunk

Probably used as a tool box, though the inside is pretty clean! This has a great look and cool colors! Measures 30-1/2 inches long, not including handles. 10-1/2 inches wide and 10-1/2 inches tall.

Nail keg and pig boards

Wooden nail keg is marked Boston on base and has a sample of nail stapled to base also. This is 18 inches tall. Two piggy cutting boards. These never seem to last long in the store! Nail keg is sold! Boards are sold!
