"Holy Toledo"

     Can you believe that my dear husband purchased this for me?!! I have always loved these old scales and now I own one. It's substantial, heavy and beautiful and I already have a few ideas for displaying it either at home or in "Sweet Repeats."  But whatever I do, I can promise you that this is a keeper forever!

     While looking at different vendor spaces and inquiring about them, most of the the responses were "Sorry it's sold."But before leaving the grounds for home, I did a quick run through and actually located this scale right across from were we had lunch.

     Thank you "Cottage Vintage Home"in Vancouver, Wa. for the great deal you gave us and it's in perfect condition. This is the best gift ever....thank you Tommy because you never hold back on trying to give me the things that you know I love.

     Until next time....The Blue Farmhouse.

  4. Hi Sandy,
    The scale is in mint condition and I've always wanted one. They are usually a couple of hundred and my husband bargained and got a screaming deal. He's so good to me.
