I went to three different auctions this last weekend and tried to pick up some different tasty items for the shop and your consideration. This is a very attractive and unusual all wood carved rocking horse all in original paint and in overall very nice condition. He measures about 41 long x 14 1/2 at rocker and 17 wide footrest and he is 26 tall at head and 18 at saddle. He is absolutely not lightweight and it all wood sections joined together. There are cracks on the rear of the runners but very minor and easy to glue and I gladly will before shipping if preferred. Very minor just figured should mention. I wasn't sure to call folk art he is a little old and think is is more pure Americana, anyway is is really cool. The hair is still in pretty good condition and the underarms of legs very strong. I have never seen this style of footrest but the best is the original paint. I tried to picture this guy very well to both show him off the great detail and answer a question or two. Shipping would be best going Greyhound Express for too large for carriers and would be arm and leg with UPS. Glad to answer any questions and I also tried to price it nice in hopes of a quick sale so I can go out and find more cool stuff for the shop and your consideration. Thanks for your time and interest
I went to three different auctions this last weekend and tried to pick up some different tasty items for the shop and your consideration. These came from a pretty extensive collection in upstate New York. Tell you the truth I have never had antique revolving chimes and if memory serves me correct I have seen them at shows but not very often. I always like unusual and things you don't see much so thought they would make good addition to the shop. There are three complete and one the largest that is a half of one and I knew that and the auctioneer was even honest too. But we thought it could be well used to mount on a door and used nicely as a door chime. One of the pulls is a rigged newer piece of wire, besides that this is a really good collection. I tried to picture them well to both show them off and answer a question or two. I also tried to price them nice, but I paid well for them because I had to outbid a few others that liked them. But I'm still in hopes of a quick sale because they are neat so I can go out and find more cool stuff for the shop and your consideration

Sesame Street Elmo Sing Along Mattel Radio 10 Songs
Elmo is his delightful, fun self with this Mattel cassette radio and microphone, and wants you to sing his favorite songs along with him. Elmo stands 10 inches tall, (to the top of his head phones) is holding the radio in his right hand, and the microphone in his left hand. The radio has 10 song play buttons, and 1 applause button. Music play requires three AA batteries, which we have provided. There is an on/off switch on the backside to activate the musical selection buttons. Elmo's favorites include: 1) Chicken Song (Dance) 2) Hokey Pokey 3) Village People YMCA tune, Move Those Arms 4) Make You Want To Shout 5) Elmo's World, La La La La 6) Wheels On The Bus 7) Old MacDonald Had A Farm 8) If You're Happy & You Know It 9) B-I-N-G-O Was His Name-O 10) Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes This is a one previous owner toy. Over-all, it is in very good condition, but we do want to make note of scuffing and some areas of missing paint. This can be seen on Elmo's head phones (front & back), and his nose. The only other issue is the microphone, which is supposed to be activated to sing along by pressing its red button. We don't know exactly how this would sound, because it appears not to be working. We believe that the idea is for the child's voice to be amplified while the songs are playing, but you won't hear that echo chamber effect. Of course, a small child could hold the microphone in his or her hand and still sing along with Elmo. Sesame Street Elmo is meant for the young child, perhaps in the 2 to 4 years of age range. Elmo's favorite songs may quickly become the ones your child sings and dances with, too!
