"Never fall in love with your inventory" is a cardinal rule of retail. Whoever made up that silly rule obviously didn't sell old things. Truth is, I love everything that I got at Josie's sale. Here are a few of my very favorite items.
The chippy step stool and the small stool are two slightly different shades of blue that play well together.
Would you believe that I almost missed the "Antiques" sign? I never saw it. A late-comer to the sale had it in his pile and decided not to take it. I didn't even know what it said, as it was upside down and partially hidden, but knew that I wanted it. When I was loading it I finally realized what it said. (What can I say? I love old signs...)
This sign was with it so I got it, too. Gracie is looking for the Kruger's. If you know them, tell them that we've got their sign.
Here's a closer look at the two blue stools -
Check out these crazy dudes; these are three of the five that I got. They have a carnival/outsider/folk art vibe. Josie didn't have any history on them but we all agreed that they are at least as much fun as the average guy!
This old bucket bench is perfect for the end of the bed. CG asked if it is an "outside bench". I replied that "it was outside...now it's inside". Gracie likes it because she can hop up on the bed more easily now.
I love the years of wear...
The funnel on the right is from Josie's sale.
This big ol' primitive scoop is holding some feed sacks at the moment,
but would be great loaded with flowers, towels or a multitude of other things.
These are the highlights - come see us at Elkhorn this weekend to see more!
