Cool Banana Box For Sale!


This super cool and funky old Banana box is one of Tracy’s (dealer ID 0089) newest additions to his space! 

Old metal strapping along the edge, a metal handle and a rustic look makes this piece a must have for that added extra special pop of interest in your home.

It is great to hold all kinds of different things from books, rolled up blankets, magazines, beach towels, toilet paper….or just leave empty and display up on a shelf.

This unusual piece won’t last long and is priced to move at under $80.00.

A Shoe In



Several of our dealers have quite a variety of shoes and shoe forms available to our customers.  The tiny child’s tap shoes are a new arrival and available in Cheryl’s space (dealer ID OCAH).   Below is a wood shoe form available in her space, too.  There is a little bit of leather left on the wood to make for a great look.



Trudy, who offers a vast variety of Dutch items, has these cute wooden shoes from Holland in her space,



as well as these solid wood ones.  Old clogs make great vessels to plant flowers in.  These wooden ones would be adorable with red begonias.

(dealer ID #31).



Cheryl actually has two pair of child’s tap shoes (below)…



…another vintage shoe form…



…and these wonderful souvenir clogs from France.



Old shoes are great to incorporate into a vintage display on a shelf or even in a child’s room. 



Trudy has this adorable I LOVE PARIS figurine in her space right now.  Wouldn’t he be cute with the French clogs?  There is a little collection to start right there!

On The Ranch Treasures


Being located in the Central Valley of California allows plenty of pickins’ for cowboy, ranch and farm related items to have on hand to offer our customers.

Oakdale, California (which is located about 30 minutes from our store) is known as “The Cowboy Capital” of the world. 

A little walk around the shop, and several photos later, we captured a little bit of what is on hand at the moment for ranch and farm related items.

Below is a wonderful cow weather vane that Dorothy and Nadine have in their space.  Check out the chair above all decked out with western fabric.


P1010138i As soon as you enter the store, you will see a display of horse and cowboy items, like the 1930’s framed horse print and cool horse lampshade and lamp.


P1010142i P1010157g These toy tractors would be cute in a child’s room done up in a ranch theme.  Or if you need a fun piece to serve up a chilled beverage, try one of these vintage milk bottles.  There are plenty to choose from and most are from dairies located in the Central Valley.

P1010156h P1010174d Dennis, our store manager, has this super cool western restaurant plate made by Tepco. 

P1010175f P1010178f

A cute Amish salt and pepper shaker set, red tractor toy and little goat bell would be a darling farmhouse vignette.



There are several horse related old books around the shop.  Above is a fun pair of ceramic horse bookends (rt) and on the left, a pair of cast iron horseshoe bookends. 


Next time we will share a super fun piece that Barbara has in her space – and a little history lesson to go along with it, too.
