What You Will Find:

Old items from our storage including a brass bed frame, large round table, wooden office desk, household odds and ends, assorted Christmas decorations, plus newly published books.

All proceeds will benefit the Josephine County Historical Society

 Large wooden desk (60" x 34") with thick glass sheet on desktop.  A couple of the drawers need a little adjustment, but would work fine as-is.  It is solid wood.  It was built about 50 years ago, probably as a school teacher's desk.  We would like $125.  (OBO bid and we will phone you at end of sale.)
Large round table.  Five foot diameter (60 inches).  Legs fold up.  Very Heavy...you will need a pickup, a couple of blankets to cover it and at least two strong individuals to load it.  Orange top that looks like Formica or similar .   We would like $75. (OBO bid and we will phone you at the end of the sale.)

Antique Brass Bed.  Old
and well used, all metal double bed, or at the time it was manufactured, it was probably called a "marriage bed.".   The brass coating has either worn off or it needs a good polishing.   It also needs a good home and will work as-is for the next century.   Head board, foot board and brass rails.  No slats.   Headboard is about five feet high.  We would like $150.  (OBO bid and we will phone you at end of sale.)
We'll add more photos as additional donations come in, so please check back often!

Hundreds of historic photos are for sale through the Josephine County Historical Society, and now you can view and purchase them online!

These historic records of our early discoverers and settlers make great wall displays when framed, and cover everything from gold panning, dredging, arrastras, and mines to railroads, historic buildings, sites and signs, towns, dams, bridges, ferries, sawmills, pioneer families and schools.

They are available through several different mediums; printed black & white photos, mailed to you on a disc or emailed.  Most of the catalogue is available for viewing online, and can be ordered and paid for online, or you can print out an order form to send with your check.  Shipping is free!
