Hello Everyone..been away for awhile with some bad times. But this week was a good one as i found and bought all these antique wooden gear molds in a old school gym that has been closed for along time. The yellow one is over 7 foot tall and the others are all diff sizes. Now i have to figure out what to do with all them. Just can't pass on a good deal.

Yes! I am very interested in seeing your gear molds and possibly purchasing a couple. Please email me to discuss: junksophisticate@yahoo.com and feel free to send your phone number if that is easier to discuss by.

Thanks so much! Will I be able to see that workshop of yours?? No pressure. ;)


AtticusFinch ~ The headboard idea is actually from Sue's book Decorating JUNKMARKET Style which is like my bible. That gear mold photo still sticks out in my head.

Oooh Candy, I don't have your vision of headboard but sounds fabulous. Cool. Posted: 11:51 am on November 7th

georgiamoon writes: Whoa Nelly!!! What the??? You found All of these in ONE place. I had never even seen one until I read Sue's book! Is this a regional thing where they have plants (meaning factories...I know they don't grow them) that make gears? We possibly don't have these in California. I can only imagine the thrill you must have felt when you saw all of these incredible, fantastic, gear molds. I think I might have an attack of some sort. Palpitations perhaps? Great find and it seems like things are looking up. I pray that they are, Georgia Posted: 2:10 pm on November 6th

If you're anywhere close to NE Ohio I know someone that would be a happy buyer if you're interested in resale for a couple! That would be ME, ME, ME!!!

Jumbo headboard is what I envision.

Hope things are better for you - some good junk does usually help (and all of that is definitely over the top!) :) Take care.

To Better Times,

Be well,

junkinhart writes: Oh, what a find!!! I've been looking for a few of those myself!

Doesn't a good treasure find just help the bad not seem so bad?

Can't wait to see what you do with all those!! Mimitoria put one on her wall as it with other pictures and it looks very nice....table top......chandelier (with vintage christmas ornaments hanging off of).......OH MY OH MY!!

Have fun,
