these barely made it back from portland- almost didn't fit in the car. but they're here in seattle now, and ready to find their new home. they're adjustable, sturdy, and full of character. perfect for home or office. or your lake cabin or rv.
get creative with this sweet old wooden tool box - perfect for storing your tools, art supplies, or magazines. or maybe use it as a picnic basket. or as a planter. or use it to haul your cat around town. up to you. and it's only $20, so if you buy it and never put it to use it won't be the end of the world.

a house isn't a home until it has a utility scale. keep that in mind. here's your chance to grab a piece of americana in the form of a fully functional, 60 lb. capacity, 30's era hanson model 2060 utility scale, made in chicago, usa. the dial is in perfect condition with a great looking crescent shaped needle. the base is heavy-duty painted black steel, with only a few spots of wear. this beauty could be displayed on a bookshelf, a kitchen shelf, a mantle, or used as yard art to hold a planter full of flowers. your call. but, the important thing here is to make the call. dimensions are 10" H, 8" W, and 7" D.
i'm not going to say too much about this set of 6 siesta ware glasses- i'm pretty sure the awesomeness speaks for itself. pure western kitsch, but with a tall glass full of function- something you and your friends will want to drink out of for a long time. dark amber glass with cowboy designs branded right onto the real wood veneer! giddy up, wrangler.
bookends are fairly straightforward items and generally don't elicit much emotion. however, adorn them with a handful of brassplated skeleton keys and you've just made them much more interesting. skeleton keys are known for their powers to unlock knowledge and wisdom, as well as to symbolize mystery and the unknown. but, if you're not into all stuff yet still need a goodlooking, vintage, burly set of bookends, then these are for you. they stand just over 6" tall and are about 4" wide. not sure how much they weigh, but i'd guess alot. skeleton keys are cool, and so are bookends. therefore, you should own these. pretty straightforward.
