Today we traveled about an hour and a half from our home for an auction that advertised a "blacksmith shop."
All that was spent from our account was $5 for a tap and die tool, and $3 for a hamburger and hot dog. It was however, a fun day in the country, I will let the pictures do the talking.
Let's walk through the front gate to the house. . .
This was what I'd call the back of the house, but it had the only exterior door. Notice the dark cabinet? It was a very unique corner cabinet, very primitive!
A silk quilt, reminded me of a crazy quilt. It sold for only $30.
Maybe a neck tie holder?
An electric washing machine!
Wordless . . .
More crocks and a coffee box labeled Meyer Bros. We have a bigger box with the same stenciling.
A very unique horse with real fur!
Thousands of fruit jars. Well maybe not quite that many.
God bless our home.
Can you read this?
Does this speak country or what???
Awesome oil chandelier.
An 1899 book and more!
I wonder how old the kids are now that sat at this table?
Now that would make a lot of butter.
I am so hungry for some apple butter now.
Any guesses on what this is?
It's a ballot box, a very early ballot box I would say.
As for the blacksmith items, I took just a few pictures . . . find them here.
