Setting up the antique sale

Today I was over to the Red Barn to take a few more things and help set up the displays. These pictures were taken inside the barn, upstairs and downstairs and believe me........you only see the tip of the iceberg! I'll try to post more pics soon!

There's that railway lamp I picked up a couple of weeks ago alongside some old snowshoes.
This cupboard is painted the loveliest soft green!
GREAT old sign!
Someone who collects this type of glass is going to be VERY happy to find these pieces!
Up to the hayloft....great furniture and more!
ok.......see the fur jacket upper right? One of my garage sale finds for........$1.00....we believe it's MINK!!..and in great shape!
I have NEVER seen such a gorgeous old brass bed....that is GLASS in the headboard and there's another panel in the footboard!!
SEE?
And my old wooden chest on its stand........I painted it and gave it a crackle finish about 10 years ago.
I brought that over today. I decided to let it go. Let someone else enjoy it.
Well, gotta go and dig around for more to take over to the sale, it starts next Wednesday and goes til the Sunday. I always find things that I wanted to sell after it's over!

I wish I could come shop. I've never seen a headboard/footboard like that before, you'd think it would never survive. Now you have the weekend to buy or hunt for more goodies to sell. Hope it's a success for you;-)

If you were in VA. I'd be there in a heartbeat. :) That bed is amazing and more amazing that the glass has survived all these years. Have fun and don't work too hard. :)
