Today we cleaned out a room in the barn in preparation of turning it into a butcher shop and honey extraction room. For the past year and a half it has been used for general storage but had to be cleared out so we could start insulating walls and hanging sheetrock. Our son Brook helped me move boxes, funiture and miscellaneous odds and ends from the barn to the garage. Some of these things had been used in our old original family ranch since the time Nancy and I were married nearly forty years ago. Among these things was a solid oak pump organ which is over a hundred years old and in almost perfect shape. Also there were several treadle sewing machines; a Singer, a White and a Free. The White machine still has all of its attachments and the original owners manual.
In anticipation of purchasing a new saw mill and having a need to make more space we’ve decided to sell a number of these antiques. We were going to advertise them on Craig’s list but thought it might be fun to put them on the Timber Butte site knowing that many of our readers share our interest in country living. The following are pictures of a few of the items we have decided to part with. If your interested email Nancy email@example.com
“Free” treadle sewing maching $125
Estey pump organ – 1902 – $1000
