Omg there was some nice stuff there. Good prices and everything was 50% off I Should have taken the truck. I did score an old 1/4 sawn oak table for my kid, I'll be re-finishing it in the next week or so. Oh it's pretty, solid oak with decent barley twist legs, extends out too. $100. Before and after pics to follow. You can't get laminated shït from walmart for triple that. I bought a gorgeous old old cabinet 2 antique wood planes, a sickle and some hand made candles for $1 each. Sweet.

Sweet ! would love to have a gramophone, our home is full of misc. steampunk style stuff I've cobbled together over the years. Everything has been recycled from someone else.

Looks like a Jules Verne's museum around here Lol

I will, going for coffee this morning with the friend that bought the gramophone, oh I wish I'd seen it first. It's in really good condition, still works too. But oh well. Start on the table today, that'll be a chore, those barley twists are a pita to refinish. But it'll be friggin gorgeous when it's done.

Your av WR lmao.gif

I love antiquing too Shadow, and your discounted finds sound really nice. My sis and I have a pact, when either of us is antiquing we also look for collectibles for each other. However, on her last hunt she bought me a hand blown brown glass figurine that resembles the Loch Ness monster...and I don't collect glass figurines nor anything Loch Ness. dunno.gif

Good morning US wave.gif It was so much fun. We had to go back with the horse trailer to pick up the stuff and the roads were nasty nasty, several vehicles in the ditch, trucks spun out on hills, and snowing really hard, you know that heavy wet first snow when nobody has their winter tires on but my kid had put winters on the day before hi5.gif

The little cabinet I bought is really old, rotted piece of twine that hooks on a bent nail to close it rofl.gif Oh and it wasn't on sale, they wouldn't discount it, I bought it anyways.

Oh yeah, I know about the first wet snow and it seems I always have to go out and drive in it...actually I am debating whether or not to put my Winter tires on early.

I've seen those really old cabinets here and there (here in Ontario) but they were always overpriced IMO. So, I ended up buying a handmade Mennonite pine cabinet, more for small nick nacks.

Oh! Good morning Shadow...I keep forgetting to say hi.

I paid $39 rofl.gif and $2.50 for the hand made sickle. I'd have bought a lot more if I hadn't lent money for the gramophone that I didn't see first vic.gif still smarting over losing out on that one. chuckle.gif

Put your winters on before it snows and the line up at the tire shop is endless
yup.gif
