Everything Comes to He Who Waits

Check out this letter from a Farm Collector reader about obtaining new pieces for his museum

I spent an hour out here at our museum to get this photo. I had to climb the tower and push the mill around a couple of times, with the wind lightly blowing, so as to get the fan to “show right.”

We have several “new” pieces in our museum: a lady gave us an Arcade 25 coffee grinder, as well as a hand-powered washing machine (we now have six of these older ones, some electric, some hand-powered). A couple gave us his grandfather’s nickel-plated parlor furnace, all restored, that his granddad bought with his World War I severance check.
