A Day In the Country
(also see Day In the Country 2)

When I was a tiny child my Grandfather had a farm in what was then "The Wilds of New Jersey". I was only 2 or 3 years old, but strangely, I still have memories of it. I recently ran across a photograph of me, at perhaps 2 years of age, with my older brother, leaning against an apple tree on Grandpa's farm. There in the background were the barn and the lake and suddenly -- I was back at the farm, just as if it was yesterday.

Sorry, the following item is by Special Order only.
A. The Horse Barn Box. A tile roof on a rough stucco stable with quoined corners and arches leading into the stalls. A hay rack on one side of the building, dimensional, an old wagon wheel leaning against the side, done in relief, horseshoes nailed up on the building, painted, and grass all around. The detail is so real and so believable and to make it more so there are two horses heads, dimensional, peeking out over the stall doors. A horseshoe for the clasp and a removable colt inside. We had this box a couple of years ago. It never got into the catalog it sold out so quickly. When I saw it again I had to buy it. For horse lovers it is the greatest! PV, of course. Retail: Upwards of $175.00. Our price: $157.90. Not new but still remarkable. Don't pass it by if you love horses.

Sorry, the following item is by Special Order only.
B. The Maid a Milking Box. The cow is belled, the pretty maid has a long, golden braid hanging down her back and the milking is ongoing. If you collect cows, this is a wonderful box. Retail: Upwards of $235.00. Our price: $212.90.

C. The Littlest Lamb Box. The sweetest little lamb, brand new, still on his bed of straw, the barnyard fence to keep him from wandering off. Retail: Upwards of $251.00. Our price: $213.90.

Sorry, the following item is by Special Order only.
D. The Ram Box. He's a fierce looking fellow with large horns and a heavy wool coat. Retail: Upwards of $149.00. Our price: $134.90.

Sorry, the following item is by Special Order only.
E. The Billy Goat Box. Be careful where you put this box. Billy goats nibble at everything. Inside, the barnyard fence, painted. Retail: Upwards of $147.00. Our price: $132.90.

F. This Little Piggy Box. He is too young to be going to market. He is so tiny that his mama doesn't let him out of the barnyard alone. He's just a babe and still kept in the pen. You can see it inside the box. The box is 1" by 1 1/4". Very small indeed. Retail: Upwards of $120.00. Our price: $102.90. Insiders Club Special: $92.90.

Note 1: I thought you all might get a kick out of seeing a "for real" photograph of me that is more than 80 years old.
