all in a days work.

People are always asking me…”where does all the stuff come from?”. This may shed some insight. Monday was a busy but not unusual day. 10:00 am off to a house in Holland Landing and picked up several pieces of furniture. 11:30 am  went to a house in Pottageville and picked up a variety of primitives, clocks, barn lanterns, stereoscopes, clock parts and more.  It took until 2:30 to finish up there. 3:00 pm off to Bond Head to pick up some items from a 160 year old home…that’s right, it was built in 1850.  Picked up a great porcelain churn on stand, school house bell on stand, a few wooden boxes, cast iron and assorted primitives. 7:00 pm my final call of the day in a little hamlet called Keenansville.  You probably have never heard of it, but I know where it is!  More primitives, lamps, lanterns, blue flowered crock, blow torches etc. The large van of mine is now full, so it is back to Barrie. I leave the van loaded because now I will need a good portion of Tuesday to sort out, tag and photo the van load. Check my answering machine and there are 7 messages for items for sale. Check my email and there are a couple of interesting emails about items for sale.  Book a few appointments, and then make a coffee and pretty well call it a day. Repeat this all several more times in a month…and you have a full sale! That’s it.
