Yesterday found me up earlier than usual on a Saturday morning. Located far out in the country, at the end of a road, the location was idyllic and incredibly secluded.
The property belonged to a local small town doctor who practiced medicine for many, many years, right here in Smalltownland. His collection of antiquities was vast and interesting.
The front porch of the cabin was loaded with cherry chest of drawers, (swoon), along with a fantastic plantation desk, which is hidden in this photo.
Antique medicine bottles, marbles, medical equipment, and oddities rounded out the items for sale.
At one point they had people bidding on a hat and, upon closer inspection, I realized it was made from a cow's udder. It went for $325.....seriously.
This tractor was a gem and still running, as I heard men say.
This old gas pump went for several thousand dollars to an out of town antique dealer. There were several of those floating around the premises.
This gentleman made the best of his situation and procured a stool, to make a spot to see the action.
At one point I was looking around inside the cabin and I struck up a conversation with a sweet, elderly man. We both loved the property and the ancient cabin. When I told him my husband thought there were just too many outbuildings, he let me know that I could just divorce my husband and he and I could run away together.
Just goes to show you that there are prospects even at the end of the road.
