Something for everyone here

The children and family members of the couple who lived on this piece of property before their deaths, held a huge estate sale over the weekend.
I wandered down there this morning and found a couple of things to buy, but what really interested me was the history. There is the first family home, a cottage, old out buildings, wonderful antique pieces of farming equipment and household goods. This was an opportunity to record some history in pictures.

An interesting old barn which is still full of all kinds of stuff.

The first home of the family

This quaint cottage, is where some of the family were raised.

An old out building decorated in blackberries.

I wonder how many members of the family, were wheeled around in style, in this perambulator.

More wonderful farm equipment, which may end up at
someones home as yard art.

Probably a cherished labor saving washing machine in it's day.

This home which housed more sale items, is where the senior couple of this family lived before their passing.

Some very old, and some, quite not so old things for sale.

Inside one of the buildings is an amazing array of tools and misc. items,
you name it and I am sure it is in there somewhere.

My treasure.
I was just on my way out of the driveway, when this little old wagon caught my eye. I could not resist buying it. I already knew what I was going to do with it, even before pulling it back home.

After a visit to the garden center, this is what the wagon looks like now.
