Folky, Fun AND Useable!!

Nashville --Ready or not, here we come! We just picked up these few things to add to our stash for the Antiques at Music Valley Show. It's getting to be crunch time and we still have alot to do. Hope to see all of you there.
This folky table is really great! It has a one board top and one board shelf. Great color!

Is this sign terrific or what! I'm not sure where it would have been hanging--maybe in an old tavern? It is heavy sheet metal with 2 bullet holes for hanging. The back side is worn white paint. Size is 12 inches by 20 inches.

I said useable, and these pulleys are really to look at! We have the stands custom made at a fencing company and sell them together so you don't have to bother.

This pedestal would be great for plants or something special. It is 11 inches tall and the diameter of the top is also 11 inches.

This square pedestal is 13 1/2 inches in height and the diamond shaped square top is 8 1/2 inches. Another great plant stand or for whatever you want!

These chairs are a vintage, shabby light pink in color. I think I'll leave them just as they are.

Two sweet barn ladders. One is 69 inches tall, 15 inches wide and 5 rungs. The other is 76 1/2 inches tall, 15 inches wide and has 6 rungs. Primitive, but sturdy.

This counter is one of 12 that we have. It is out of an old drug store from right here in Central Illinois. They are in need of TLC, so Gary is refinishing it. This one is almost 6 feet in length with sliding doors and drawers on each side. Very useable and nice for any room. It is made of oak and pine.

This old washstand is really a cute piece. As you can see from the pictures, one side is missing it's paint. The green is very great, but someone might want it down to walnut.

That's all for now! As always, email me if you have any questions. (countrymeadows3@charter.net). We will be taking these great finds to the Antiques at Music Valley Show in Nashville---along with lots more! We'd better get busy!
Until next time,
Pam--(& Gary)
