This weeks feature item is this very unique Stanley Victor No. 20 1/2 compass wood plane. The sole plate is flexible and when you turn the the adjusting knob it will either pull up or push down to cut concave and convex shapes. They are great for curved work such as handrails, curved moldings, and furniture.

It has been crazy here at Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques and I have fallen behind with my weekly feature items. We actually found some antique shows and flea markets this fall that we have been able to set up at, and this weekend will be our third show in the past 3 weeks. This weekend on Sunday we will be in Elkhorn Wisconsin at their HUGE antique show.

This week’s feature item is this very nice 3 slot Automatic Electric Co. model LPB-82-55 rotary payphone in excellent original condition. These can be retro fitted and work with today’s technology. Perfect for a man cave or home bar.

Remember back in time when you looked forward to winter recess at school, and kids were tough. This weeks feature item is a throwback to that time. This metal Artic Saucer was made by the Garton Toy Co. in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Garton made 2 versions of the saucer with different graphics. One had kids sliding down a hill, and the one we have with the penguin, rabbit, and bears. Of the two versions this one is the harder to find.

UPDATE: We have been allowed to keep our larger signs where they are until we get this straightened out. We do have to move our small open sign and banners back farther away from the hwy.

 

 

 

 

To all our valued Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques customers.

 

Beginning Monday June 17th, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, after 10 years, will no longer honor the agreement we have with them to have our business signs out by the highway and visible to oncoming traffic. They are forcing us to move all Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques signage back 200 feet from the highway. Our signs will no longer be visible from HWY 8 unless you look directly down our driveway. This includes our Antiques Ahead signs, our business sign, open signs, and all banners. We know this will negatively affect our business, but we are NOT closing. The DOT is reviewing our circumstance and hopefully we can arrive at a suitable conclusion that both parties can agree upon.

Over the years I have had a lot of interest in my personal ride-on toy collection on display in the shop. My collecting interests have changed and it is time to offer some of these toys for sale.  This week’s feature item is this rare all original 1978 Allis Chalmers 7045 pedal tractor. 

 

Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques brought home the plaque for most creative pinewood derby car this year at the Boy Scouts Chippewa Valley Council Adult Pinewood Derby fund raiser . The winning car (wagon) was all hand made except for the wheels. RCM's other two cars came in 11th and 31st overall posting scale speeds of 188 and 184 mph. The wagon could only get up to 153 mph. Stop by the shop and check out the wagon.
