The first treasure, an antique primitive German wood blanket trough ( whew! that was a mouthful! ), came from a "collector couple" in the Cities who were downsizing. They purchased this trough many years ago at an antique store and used it at the end of their bed to hold blankets. As far as they knew, that is what it was built for. It sits on an antique iron stand and is 45 inches long. Wouldn't you love to have this to hold blankets in? Or you might think of other uses for it! If you're into primitives this is a very cool piece!
The other treasure is an antique German telescopic camera tripod. The initials D. R. G. M. are on it. It has extendable brass legs. This would be nice repurposed as a base for a lamp or use as its intended purpose.
Both of these items will be for sale at our Spring Sale over Memorial weekend!
