The bag is a brown pin striped bag with a slight waxy feel.

Condition: small piece missing on bottom (approx. 1/8" X 3/4") Top has several creases and tears with a triangle missing approx. 1 1/2" X 1 1/2"

Antique vintage Iron flag holder - $32 incl. S&H<-- Click image to left for more views.
While this flag pole holder only has one hole to screw it to a base, as you can see in one of the pictures, it's perfectly balanced to sit on a rail. There's old tar which makes me wonder if this may have mounted on a buggy or ship?
12 3/4" at its longest

Vintage Tin & Wood Sunnyland Washboard Columbus Ohio Laundry Room Scrub Board - $22.00S&H included for US sales (all others contact us first)
Nice old, well used 2 sided scrub board. Has surface rust for that rustic look. You can tell the circular motion of the washing process by the way that the galvanization was worn off from use, which allowed the iron to rust. Writing on both sides. One side says "Sunnyland." The other side says, "Standard Family Size Galvanized No. 2090 Manufactured by Columbus Washboard Co. Columbus, Ohio." Overall dimensions 12 1/2" X 23 3/4"

the paint is gone. We've owned this horn for over 30 years

Antique Pine Baby Sled Frame - $69.00 includes S&H;Click image to left for more views. This frame is made from 1/2" wide pine boards. It is 28" long, 15 1/2" wide, and 13 3/4" high. The back was cracked a long time ago, and was repaired with the 2 iron bars you see pictured. I would assume the 2 small pieces of wood that are visible at the back of this were the arms that held the handles. If this is the case, someone cut it a long while ago, because where it was cut has darkened with age. Also as you will note, there is no bottom.
This must have been a very sweet sled in its day. Even if left as is, it would make a great display for dolls or other small friends.
Forged Iron Buggy Step - $21.00 includes S&HClick image to left for more views. Need a step up? The step is 4 1/8" wide and 3 3/8" deep. The support bar is 19/5" long. It would bolt to the underside and the step protrudes enough to help climb up. Probably late 19th century.
Could be a conversation piece as a plant stand.
Wizard Oscillating Electric Fan -$47.00 includes S&HClick image to left for more views. Just in time for the summer? This "Wizard" oscillating (reciprocating) electric fan has a really cool streamline-shaped base and chromed accents, including a chrome vertical stripe in the front of the base which is not visible in the pictures. Even the control knob has a rocket futuristic look to it. This is being sold as is. There is no chord. There is also a screw missing on the bottom. The picture of the bottom also shows how it was designed to be wall mounted as well as sitting on a table top.
It is also hard to see in these photos the word "Wizard on the center of the cage, or the information that is on the base - which says, "Wizard 105-120V 55W Model 45K - 60 cycles Bersted Mfg. Co. Fostoria Ohio Oakville Ont. Canada.
DIMENSIONS: 15 1/4" tall - The diameter of the cage is 13 1/2" - The Fan blades measure 12" end to end.
Vidicraft Cordless Headphone System CSH-200 $49.00 includes Samp;HClick image to left for more views. Cordless Stereo Headphones
Never used. We took these out of the box when they were given to us brand new. We never set them up. Just put them back in the box and stuck them in the closet till we had a good place to use them. As you might guess, that never happened. That could easily have been over 20 years ago.

Primitive Vintage Penny Wooden Folk Doll - $49.00<-- Click image to left for more pics
S&H included for US sales (all others contact us first)
Sweet primitive painted face. Some of the black hair is scuffed.
Approx. 12" tall
Also known as peg wooden and dutch dolls The hinge for her right shoulder was broken. I made a new one (as seen in photos). Her left arm and right leg come out. This would need new pegs or pins to hold these in place, as would the replacement piece. I opted to leave them as is, because it gives more flexibility for positioning her. Her right shoulder is missing a chunk on the back, but the dowel I made is long enough to still work fine.
Simply carved. The joints are crudely made and stiff.
I do not know the history of this particular doll. I have had several of this same exact style. Wikipedia attributes this design to peg wooden dolls from Val Gardena, late 19th century. Even the diamond shape that takes the peg / pin on the back of the should looks the same. My guess is that this particular doll may not be as old as that - They probably made them for a number of years. Anyway, we've owned this since the 1970s and it was not new then.
