PLEASE CLICK ON “READ MORE” AND READ FULL DESCRIPTION AND SEE MORE PHOTOS! I went to not one, but Two auctions in one day (I know I’m awesome!) and have so many cool items to list this week. One of the auctions was the estate of a couple that owned a rural radio and TV store, according to the auctioneer, from 1940 until 1970. They frequented the rural auctions, and collected many many antique treasures. When they passed, their stuff was literally packed in boxes and had been kept in storage for decades. The auction was filled with not only their collections, but also generations of family pieces dating back to the mid 1800s. Also, be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of all of my listings as I usually have MORE photos down there, too! AND…I might as well say it from the get-go. ALL of my items this week are DIRTY, DUSTY, COBWEBBY AND DEBRISY, all barn lived for a long time, and ALL will need a good cleaning. I do not clean or mess with as found patina in any way. Also please note that I’ve made some changes to my payment and combined shipment policies, which you can see highlighted in my detail below.
loveLoveLOVE this dynamic duo! It's two antique kitchenware pieces from the first auction. One is a small turned wood chop bowl and the other is a chopper to go with it! I bought them together so they are staying together! The bowl measures 9 1/8" going one way, 8 5/8" going the other, it stands 2" tall and weighs just over 1/2 lb. It's in excellent solid and sturdy condition structurally - totally strong with no cracks or structural issues. Whatever used to be the finish in now gone washed gone and you are left with the varying patina of the natural wood, it's darkened from age, with some dark spots of grey and caramel and there's some teeenie forest green colored spots on the inside of the bowl - see photo 13, clearly from what used to be inside. I have no idea if they will clean off - I have not messed with the patina in any way. I see it as all part of its story! The bowl shows all the wear that you would expect from a utilitarian oldee - scratches, scrapes (especially on the bottom/underside) nicks, dings, divots, cuts, nibbles, and anything else that you can think of! It clearly worked hard over its life but it still looks great! The chopper has a turned wood handle and a steel blade. it measures 5 7/8" wide at the handle, 5 1/4" wide at the blade, it's 5 1/2" tall from the bottom of the blade to the top of the handle, the handle is 7/8" diameter and the blade is thinner than 1/16". It weighs a smidge over 1/4 lb and is in excellent solid and sturdy condition - totally strong. There's looooooots of rustic wear to the wood handle, but it's sturdy with no wiggles or jiggles. Just like the bowl, whatever was its old finish is pretty much gone. There's one darker spot on one side and a little darker on the bottom of the handle, but that is it. It has nibbles, nicks, dings and small chips. The steel blade is dark from age and it has smooth darkdarkdark spots of surface rust all over that are just part of the patina now. The blade is not sharp, but it's not dull either - I assume you could sharpen for use. Orrrrrrr, just have them out as part of your primitive decor - you can't go wrong with this pair!
Customer Satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me before leaving feedback.
If you are using a phone or tablet to look at listings, you may not be seeing full descriptions – please make sure you are – I list sizes, condition and many photos on all of my items – so if you are not seeing that, you’re not seeing all I have about the listing.
Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra photos, let me know. My white stool, my rug and anything else that you see other than the item discussed are not included in the auction!
PAYMENT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY(SAME DAY) AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION.
I’m happy to combine shipments for you, when possible - depending upon size and weight, it might not always be possible, though. If you win an item and plan to bid on another, please email me to let me know that you are looking at other items, hold to pay for the first item and request a combined shipping invoice once you’ve won the other item/s. If you pay for an item, I have to ship it, I cannot hold for items that close another day, if you pay for the first item. Unless you ask me for an invoice earlier, I will invoice on Sunday for multiple items purchased the week prior, or after 5 days have passed since the item that you won has closed. 5 (FIVE) days from the closing of the FIRST bought item will be the longest I can wait time wise to combine, and I ask for immediate payment after invoice for combined orders. I NOW HAVE 'S UNPAID ITEM ASSISTANT SET TO AUTOMATICALLY FILE A CLAIM FOR PAYMENT 8 DAYS AFTER THE CLOSE OF AN AUCTION, WHEN NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE - PLEASE KNOW. Please know that some items cannot be combined, though, do to size, weight, or safety of the items. Many items that are set to ship in USPS FLAT RATE boxes; I cannot combine due to size restrictions. Please look at the shipping alternatives in the listings. I only mail USPS and pack in the best manner that we feel safe – I cannot change shipment methods after the close of an auction (i.e. rolling an old map to save money when I have it set to ship flat), especially if I feel the requested method is not safe. Again, I only ship USPS and charge actual cost to ship only. I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, unless there’s a holiday that closes the post office, or I will notify you otherwise. As I shop for treasures on the weekends, I most often do not ship on Saturday. Most items closing and paid for on Friday will be shipped on Monday.
Many of my items come from local rural estate sales and auctions. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you - dust, dirt, cobwebs and all! I do not clean and polish before I sell – they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos, and I leave the patina exactly as it was when I bought the item. I do my best to photo and describe all thoroughly.
Please email me before bidding if you do not use PayPal, as Paypal is the only requested method of payment on this listing.
With postage rates increasing regularly, I am shipping more and more items Parcel Select. Parcel Select travels by land or rail and the packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so the estimated delivery is truly only an estimate – not exact). The post office estimates 5-7 days, but it can go up higher, sometimes even 3-4 weeks in peak mailing times like the holidays. I always provide a tracking number, so you can see where your item is on any day.
Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers.
…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
