Posted by Susan Berge, Editorial Assistant

Check out these 8 plexiglass/Lucite pedestals! We have 6 tall rounded ones and 2 that are smaller and square.

So versatile, they can be used as plant stands (just think of how philodendrons, spider plants, ivy or asparagus ferns would be highlighted on these!) or perhaps for other items you’d like to display. The possibilities are endless – your imagination is the limit! This is another one of our finds at the florist shop in Boston that closed due to the owners’ retirement.

The pedestals are transparent and notice that some have square tops and bottoms, and others are round. They do have some scratches, as is expected due to use.

Condition:  These are in good, used condition with no breaks or chips, although as mentioned, they have scratches from use.

Dimensions:  Round pedestals are 32″ high x 10″ wide/deep. Square pedestals are 21″ high x 10″ square.

FIRM Price:  $50 for all 8 pieces, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.75, for a total of $52.75.  Sorry, we really don’t want to sell them piecemeal.

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!) 

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do hear from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping is not recommended on these items.

SOLD! Lovely Mahogany Tilt Top Table With Pie Crust Edging

Posted by Susan Berge, Editorial Assistant

Pedestal tables like this are usually on three legs, with a round or oval top, trimmed with a raised, scalloped edge that looks like the crimped rim of a pie crust. The edging can be either carved or molded, and the top often tilts up making for easy storage against a wall in small homes.

Condition:   It’s in very good used condition with no noted damage.

Dimensions:  22″ Diameter x 26″ High

FIRM Price:  $46.00 plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.53, for a total of $48.53. 

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!)

A Stylish Addition to Your Living Room – Vintage Henredon Console Table

Posted by Susan Berge, Editorial Assistant

You may or may not have heard of Henredon furniture, but the company was founded in 1945 by four furniture makers – Henry Wilson, Ralph Edwards, Donnell VanOppen and Sterling Collet. The name Henredon is a combination of Henry, Ralph Edwards and Donnell (wonder why Sterling didn’t get any representation).

We found this wonderful table at a florist shop in Boston that was closing after years in business, due to the owners’ retirement. It’s constructed of mahogany wood and beveled glass. Note the interesting artistic design which helps to support the glass. It needs to be refurbished, but with a little love, just think how nice this will look! There are no chips or cracks in the beveled glass.

The Henredon mission has always been to create quality constructed furniture that will last for generations, as is the case with this well loved console table.

Condition:  Structurally, it’s solid. Visually, it looks great until you get up close and can see what may be water damage to the top, under and around where the glass insert is. It seems likely that the table was used to display plants, with the resulting water leaks. There are some other dings and blemishes to the wood as is likely to happen to older furniture.

Dimensions:  51″ wide x 14″ deep x 28″ high

FIRM Price:  $60.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $3.30, for a total of $63.30. 

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!)

A Quaint Addition to Your Kitchen, Pantry, Mudroom… An Amish-Crafted Jelly Cabinet

Posted by Susan Berge, Editorial Assistant

Constructed by Amish craftsmen, specializing in wood furniture, jelly cabinets were usually made of wood and sporting multiple, shallow shelves to hold jarred goods. Jam cupboards were found in many American households. Using a jelly cupboard during the 19th century entailed placing the jam and jelly jars inside to ensure proper storage.

This piece is marked, “Amish crafted” and “Borkholder”

As you can see, it needs some TLC but if you choose to refurbish the piece, it will be an awesome addition to your household.

Condition:   Structurally, it’s in very good, used condition. Visually, you’ll see there are significant water stains, although they don’t detract from the cabinet’s usability.

Dimensions:  48″ high x 26″ wide x 14 1/2″ deep

FIRM Price:  $115.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $6.33, for a total of $121.33. 

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!)

Antique “Universal” Brand Hand Wringer – Makes Handwashing Those Sheets a Breeze!

Posted by Linda Snyder, Proprietor.

Can you imagine? I can, because I grew up with an old-fashioned wringer washing machine. Readers who’ve been following this site for a while may remember a reference to the scars I have from that machine – and the time my teenaged waist-length hair got caught in that wringer!

Anyway, I doubt anyone will actually want to use this extremely heavy, rather awkward wood & metal hand wringer nowadays, but wow! What a great reminder of how wonderful modern appliances are.

The piece came via an auction in Vermont, so I have this vision of a farming mom from 100 years ago, in her cotton dress and apron, laboring over it on wash day. (Note the statement on the piece that it’s “Warranted 3 Years for Family Use”.

Condition:  It seems to be in great condition for its age, although I haven’t actually tried to wring the water out of anything with it.  The wood appears to be all intact, and there’s not much rust on the steel/metal parts.  

Dimensions: 17” high x 17” wide, plus another 11 inches with the handle.  It’s about 7″ deep.

FIRM Price:  $75.00 plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $4.13, for a total of $79.13. 

You can pay with PayPal using the blocks at the end of this page.  (We’re still working out the bugs, so bear with us, please!)

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  The wringer is quite heavy.  Shipping via USPS is $35.00.

2 Vintage (1940s era) Alligator Leather Purses

Posted by Linda Snyder, Proprietor.

This was such a weird auction purchase for me. I’ve been a vegetarian for nearly 45 years, and close to vegan for the past few years. So the idea of buying two 80 year old alligator bags complete with their little heads and feet, should have been a “No Way!”. After all, I won’t touch fur with the proverbial 10-foot pole.

But I looked at those little faces and something about them seemed so touching – almost sweet, even! (Yeah, I know. You’re definitely getting strange in your old age, Linda!)

So I bid, and I won them. And here they are. Two vintage/antique alligator skin taxidermied purses, from the 1940s. I even found a few S&H Green Stamps in one of the bags! (If that doesn’t date it, nothing will!)

The larger one is stamped “Genuine Alligator. Made in Florida USA” inside. The stamp on the smaller one is somewhat worn off; all I can read is “Genuine —, Made in Cuba”.

The larger purse has a small zippered pocket inside. The smaller one has a small zippered pocket and an exterior flap that hides another pocket / compartment.

Condition:   Both purses are in excellent condition, although the straps on the smaller one are a bit worn with some cracking.  However, compared to others found on-line, these are in superior shape!  The small bag also has a blemish of some kind on the top left, but it almost appears original with the bag.

Dimensions:  The large bag is 12″ wide by 9″ high by 4″ deep (across the bottom).  The small bag is 10″ wide by 7″ high by 3 1/2″ deep.

FIRM Prices:  The large bag is $115.00; the small one is $85.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax.  Buy both for $160.00.  Please promise to love and respect them!

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do hear from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping via USPS is $25.00.

SOLD! A Great, Inexpensive Set of Lawn Furniture! From Our Lawn & Garden Shop

Posted by Linda Snyder, Proprietor.

I picked this set up at an auction last month, and just yesterday (April 7) put it outside to take a better look at it. Sure made it seem like summer in Maine is on its way!

The set consists of 2 upright folding chairs and two folding chaises, as well as the cushions you can see in the above photos and those below.

The birdbath on the left is not for sale. The one on the right is, although it does have a crack in it and I’m not yet sure if it will hold water, although even if it doesn’t, it would make a great planter! Information on that item is coming soon!

Condition:   The set is in overall good condition although there are some dings and blemishes, which you can see in the photos.  Also, since taking the photos, I’ve washed all the cushions, but because they’ve been outside, the outside stains just do not come out as well as one might like.  However, they are clean! 

(By the way, the dark spot in the upper right hand corner of the cushions on the two chaise lounges is the logo of the company that produced the cushions.  It’s not a damaged area.)

Dimensions:  I haven’t measured them as they are standard lawn chair sizes.

FIRM Price:  $60.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $3.30, for a total of $63.30. 

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.

Let’s Welcome Sue to Our Team!

Author: Linda Snyder, Proprietor.

Oh wait! That’s not Sue! That’s some dude named Elvis, and he belongs on another post! Oops! HA!

Okay, so here’s the news! Sue Berge is a friend of mine who is now a part-time staffer, hired to help with writing the inventory and informational/resource posts (the latter being something I’ve long wanted to do, but rarely have time for). We will now be able to offer more of the chatty kinds of posts about our products that we’ve become known for!

Sue has an excellent background in business, marketing and office management, and has already proved her value to me. (She also has no problem suggesting I do things differently!) I’m thrilled to have her, and to be able to use those wonderful skills!

You’ll be able to tell who writes the posts, because from now on, one name or the other will be listed under the lead photo.

Welcome, Sue!
