The Weekend Report

Sometimes I just never get to work on this place much!
Sunday we ventured to Wood's Auction to bid on some furniture items for the house. The crowd was kind of thin this time, so prices were more than reasonable. We ended up buying 5 items. The first thing was a "Radio Flyer" red wagon for Elizabeth at $6.00. We then got this laundry stove for $12.50, but we have no idea exactly what we are going to do with it. I could actually install it as a supplemental heat source for the upstairs of the cottage since the chimney is wide enough to put two liners in.

For the money we could stick it in the back yard and put flower pots on it!

Then I got us two Victorian Coal bins at $25.00 each. We can use these for kindling and newspaper to start a fire with when the time comes that we occupy this place and for $125.00 we got a parlor stove dated 1867. Here is the picture of the last three items.

Sorry, no picture of the red wagon. Elizabeth had taken it for a test drive.....
