A 1930's Cast Iron Radio Bank
A salesman sample horse collar...so rare!
A very cool World War II memorabilia book which we placed it inside this old wood firescreen frame for display in our Fourth of July window.
Found a cool old set of pink folding chairs and a single barrister industrial bookcase.
As I was looking at the items once we returned home, I couldn't help but wonder who the original owner might have been. Some of the books and photographs were from 1880. Who was this John Boone that wrote all those notes in the Farmer's Pocketbook? His weekly purchases from the general store, neatly written in pencil, the weather and hardships he experienced. He even practiced his signature numerous times on one page. I am hoping it will find a new home where it's appreciated.
So...when it was all said and done, I'm glad we went but I learned a lesson. Always bring the camera and a pair of gloves. (The first 3 pictured items will be listed on eBay this evening for a 10 day auction)
