Collectibles Of A Different Sort

Every area of the country gets the benefit of enjoying collectibles that other areas don’t get to see that much.  In my neck of the woods, primitives are seen here more often than things like Chippendale furniture.

There’s a wide range of primitives here in the Ozarks that you could run into, like this scythe.

 When you travel to another part of the country, it would be fun to see what kind of collectibles you run into.


  1. You have me curious. What does a scythe - in fair to good condition - go for? I have two of them - they were my grandfather's, or at least in and on his side of the family.

    Also. If you know what a two-handled wood saw would be worth. I'm curious to know that as well.

    1. I've seen scythes in my area sell in the range of $40 to $60. The thing to remember about these is to check the condition of the handles. Sometimes what would happen with scythes is they would be left outside, and the weather and pesky bugs get to it (espically the handle). The two-handled saw depends on how long the blade itself is. The ones that I see a lot of around here is like this:

      Those sell in the range of $40 to $70.
