Antique Adirondack splintwood fishing basket backpack (that’s not easy to say). You’ll still look cool even if you don’t catch any fish. $150 SOLD

Great resource for identifying all those beautiful wildflowers you find in the meadow. You may even consider framing some of these plates. With 400 of them who would notice one or two missing? $45 SOLD

Can you imagine…not only did they grow all of their own vegetables, but they hand carved these little birds to use for labeling them, too. Amazing, it’s only $7!

I don’t know anyone who has pictures of falcons. Do you? $20 each (One SOLD)

First hang them on the wall for decoration, but you’ll know that if you’re ever trapped by a bad snowstorm you can always run for help. Or send someone else…Snowshoes $175

Sometimes You Just Gotta Have It

Vintage radiator water can or gas can $85

Do you recognize this? It’s a “Creeper”!

I think it’s pretty rare. Used for gliding under cars. Put your tools in the side boxes and get to work. Or catch a nap while it looks like you’re working. (That’s probably why they’re rare. Who would want to give one up?) $225

The racetrack is that-a-way $50 SOLD

Say it ten times, fast…rubber baby buggy wheels. One more and we can build a go-cart. $25 each or 3 for $60

Maybe for 8 track tapes?

Lock & Co. (England) and Borsalino (Italy) Fedoras. Do they get better than this?

Vintage Crucianelli accordion in excellent condition. Made in Italy

Accordions and their cases. Horns, too. (Horns are SOLD)

It’s a great place to hang out and catch the scent of wisteria on the breeze. From our door, we look right into the sides of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Domino Sugar Factory (check out the reflection in the front windows)…we love it here.

Cry Baby

No need to look to friends for sympathy anymore. When you need it, a little rubber cry baby does all the crying for you…and with you. $10 SOLD

We would put something delicious in this bowl so that it disappears fast and we can get back to looking at that swirl.

This bowl is 6″ in diameter, made by Michael Andersen & Sons of Bornholm, Denmark who are known for their mid-century stoneware. The bottom of the bowl is marked with their impressed triple fish stamp. It’s very usable, but when it’s not in action, we’d probably leave it out, pretending it’s being used so we could look at all the pretty, hand-painted blues. $43 SOLD
