vintage JOHN OSTER COCKTAIL MIXER, works- $326

Long before we had blenders, pasta makers, and salad shooters, John Oster Mfg. Co. of Racine, Wisconsin was producing his Cocktail Mixer. This one is from 1935, and it still works fine.

OLD naive oil painting RUTH PARKER- $49

Drawn simply from the painting she left behind, I have a clear understanding of Ruth H. Parker and the life she led. It is all speculative, imaginary if you will, but paintings such as this one, straightforward, born of self-expression, and a heapin’ helpin’ of naiveté, are open invitations to conjecture. 

 Ruth loved cats, dogs, flower gardening, and children – not necessarily in that order. She knitted, crocheted, and kept her home spotless, even after her husband of fifty-five years, Ned, passed away unexpectedly ten years before the day she decided to “paint.”
