Antiques Again

Back again with some more antiques new to the store.  Above is a walnut spice box, homemade with 6 drawers.  On the bottom of one drawer in old script is a handwritten recipe.  No paper on hand, quick, turn over the drawer of the spice box and write it there!

Next is a homemade spoon carved washstand.  This has a lovely iodine stain that gives it a reddish appearance.  Really unique.  The towel bar would be spiffy with hand dyed wool laying over it like hand towels.  Hmmmm......I should try that tomorrow.

Below a few of the many baskets I bought while at Sauder Village.  These were made by the Sauder ladies and most are signed on the bottom, by their maker.  These two have strap handles and are perfect for hauling lots of wool to your next hooking event.  There are lots more Sauder baskets in the store.  All shapes and sizes, so if you are in the area stop by and see all the interesting news things.

I will show a few more tomorrow, so check back. Maybe tomorrow I will show you the new project I am starting.  First I guess I should show you the one I just finished.  Yes, that is what I will do.......see you tomorrow, then.



  1. Ann from 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets used to be a basket weaver at Sauder and she makes some wonderful baskets. One that is very similar but on the front hangs a plaque (for lack of a better term) that shows a sheep and says Woolhooker Goods. You ought to check her out!

  2. I will, thanks Lauren. Baskets are just so much better for hauling wool around than a Target bag!
