April and It Isn't a Million Degrees Below Zero

I am set up for the April 4 day sale at Second Hand Rose in Buffalo, Minnesota.  I am also hoping that at least for a few of the sale days the temperature will breach the freezing mark.  My space looks better than the grainy photos, but all I had was my phone to take pictures when I finished on Sunday evening.

The small desk is on casters and rolls easily.  The top folds down and a drop leaf on the back raises to create a dinner room size table.  Behind it are a small pair of French doors, all sanded and ready for the buyer's paint or stain.

Atop the chair is a basket constructed from branches.

Big (and heavy) mirror sits on a Art Deco buffet priced to sell at near wholesale.

The corner has a ladder, goose decoy, butterflies and other good things.

There are colorful chickens filling the west wall.

Niloak blue, Haggar gold and a brown transferware vase sit on the glass.

This dressing screen on rollers just needs the proper fabric to meet the buyer's screening needs.

A small bear skull sits on a heavy industrial style table which is planks on top of a steel base.

We are all hoping for good weather and a good turn-out.  Look for the hogs just inside the "other room" amongst all the roses.

Hogs at Second Hand Rose for March 2014

  There is a whole herd of hogs lose at Second Hand Rose's for the March sale.  I finished up with a little cleaning and pricing today after working after 9 PM yesterday getting everything into place.  I like a lot of the pieces that I herded into the shop for the March sale.

 The homemade antique ladder rests against
two old desks repurposed into coffee tables.

 A great church stained glass panel rests atop
a Victorian cast metal faux bamboo hall tree.

 The Twin City Seed Separator has a glass top
so it can serve as a console or hall table.

 Art Deco walnut veneer buffet with a nice
industrial stool in front.

 A small four drawer parts cubby sits on top
of a great desk.  The desk top folds out with
two pieces making a 66" top.  Big enough to serve
as a dining room table.

 One of the expanding leaves on the
desk sits as a drop leaf off the back
of the desk when not in use.

 The ornament from the center of a neat automobile grille.

Two industrial Lobay Co. lights from the
Lutheran church gymnasium and a hand
made copper and forged iron hanging light.

It is going to be a good sale this month, our first of the year with temperatures above zero, and there is a lot of good junk to pick from.
