This will be a two day sale.

Black Friday is the day to shop and oh my do we have the place for you to shop. There are two houses, a large four stall tractor barn, a two car garage and a green house full of Hidden Treasures.
In the main house you will find a player piano and piano rolls. The piano is very old and needs some TLC but what a wonderful addition to your home and a joy to watch it play itself with all the old songs of yesteryear. The lady of the house enjoyed restoring old trunks and she did a fabulous job with the two we have to sell.
There are several pieces of mid century furniture including a glass top table for your patio, a three piece sectional, several lamps and some bedroom furniture. The wood burning stoves (there are two) will keep you toasty this winter and should keep the heating bills low. The kitchen holds many surprises including some old cook books and some special cooking items like grandma used to use.
The beautiful Nesco roast air oven is brand new as well as the NuWave cooker. There is a beautiful Alvin Chateau Rose Sterling flatware from the 1940’s. What wonderful gifts for the Holidays. The washer and dryer and refrigerator are also for sale. For all you seamstresses we have several sewing machines and stacks of fabric, some even from the 1960’s.
The beautiful bride doll from the late 1950’s looks like she just came out of a box at Christmas. If you love Christmas this is the place to shop. We have found several boxes of vintage Christmas decorations that are all intact and still in their original boxes.
There is sheet music from the turn of the century and a charming vintage music cabinet to keep them in. The five board pine blanket chest is perfect to put at end of your bed, or the 1950’s cedar chest is a great addition to a mid century home.
As we travel to their second house right next door, you will find a Shabby Chic collectors dream. There are stacks of chairs waiting to be taken home and given a new life, tables that need a coat of paint, and vintage windows that would add to your garden’s decor and many things we a have yet to uncover.
The gentleman that owned these homes and property owned a hardware store years ago and brought home numerous boxes of new items, tools, hardware, etc. when his store closed so there are are number of very interesting vintage hardware items to search through.
The tractor shed and garage will be a mans paradise.We are still going through and know we will find any number of Hidden Treasures. Two of the treasures in the tractor shed are the Dewalt radial arm saw and Mama Bear wood burning stove.
Outside are several riding mowers that may need a little love and care, but at least one looks to be almost new. The Easy Go golf cart will be great for in town travel or covering a large piece of property.
Outside we uncovered a boat trailer that needs a little TLC. The green house may bring any number of surprises. There is even a 1950’s house trailer in the back that needs a lot of work but may be worth looking at.
This is by far one of the most interesting sales we have ever had.
Chincoteague is very close and there will be wonderful restaurants open for your dining pleasure so be sure to come and spend the day. Remember this is a two day sale so plan to spend your weekend with us. Look for the pink and black signs to guide you there.
Happy Thanksgiving from Ruth and her crew!
