I love my farm and country collectibles! I was fortunate to be able to scavenge and save a few items from our farm in Saskatchewan before it was sold. Regularly, I also take a tour of local thrift stores and watch the marketplace for various items.
Here are some pictures of some of my vintage collectibles and displays from my private collection. I will keep adding more as time goes by. We are still unpacking from our move so I will be setting up some displays as we unpack.
I hope you like them!
Update: July 27, 2021:
