Old slide projectors, campaign chests and some really great sideboards. Not to mention a pair of red skis that I should have put up on my wall.
Here’s what I ran across this month.
Let me tell you. Out of everything in that entire batch of things I had to leave behind, that Massey Harris wagon wheel killed me. It was $199. I stood by it for almost 30 minutes debating taking it home. I have this upper stair landing in our home with a giant empty square wall that I have wanted to fill. This would have been perfect as it was huge – at least 42 – 44″ in diameter. The problem is I in no way, shape or form had the money to be able to spend on it.
From the research I did on Massey Harris (the brand stamped on the wheel) it looked like it could have been made anywhere between 1915 – 1928. Then I googled it and happily discovered that one was for sale for much less than this asking price. Then I emailed it to my mom who lives in Mennonite meets Antique farm country central and she was like “What’s the matter with you? Do you know how cheap I can get you a wagon wheel for?”
Still. I loved it. And I cannot believe someone gave it away. Just goes to show you how one man’s trash is another man’s trea…no wait, what’s it going as now Macklemore . My apologies. One man’s come up.
Anything catch your eye?
