Very neat item at a fair price. Condition as described. Giving as a housewarming gift for family moving to the city on the bottle. Ellen was very pleasant, prompt, and helpful throughout the transaction. She even went out of her way to save me a few dollars on shipping costs. Item still arrived quickly and carefully packed at reduced shipping price. Thank you!

This blue bird is perfect in all his age. He now is in a planter on my front porch greeting friends.

Connecticut Yankee moves to Texas
While I loved living on Long Island Sound, I didn't think I could face one more winter. So I moved to Texas with all my vintage dishes, linens, children's books, tin toys, clocks and and antique furniture. Yes, it cost me a lot to move!
Here in Austin, I met a wonderful man who also has an appreciation for antiques and vintage items and helps me with identification, repairs and overall love and support.
Many of the items for sale in my shop made the move to Texas with me. They've been lovingly cared for and their histories have been researched with great care. It's time to share them with others for their collections or to be used as a movie prop or other advertising piece.
Excitingly, some of my items have shown up in TV shows and movies! A vintage globe that was in my shop is now on display at a major department store on Fifth Avenue in New York City!
A toy car was sold to a production company in LA for use in a popular TV show. (Think advertising agency in the 1950's and 60's)
And we just sold a pinball machine to another production company, this time in NY, for a TV show in production. How exciting is that!
My grandparent's dairy farm in upstate NY was the inspiration for my shop name. I spent many wonderful summer days going through all the interesting stuff in the attic, farmhouse and the dairy barn. We had a family reunion at the farm several years ago and 200 people showed up! Was it ever fun!
I collect children's books and paper ephemera to excess,
so I opened another shop on Etsy.

Please contact me if you have any questions or thoughts or just want to chat about antiques or life in general. Thanks for stopping by!

Muffin was in charge of photography for a local rescue group. We were lucky enough to get her to join our team as a photographer's assistant. Sometimes she likes the limelight and shows up in the shop photos.
Head Of Security
Hard to believe Maggie is in charge of Security. She becomes everyone's best friend the minute they meet. Though, she can let out a big WOOF when needed.
Mickey is the newest addition to our staff. He's in charge of morale because he is always happy, has lots of energy and is ready to help out whenever needed.
