No bats in the belfry, but birds in the Clock Tower!  LOL!!  I want to praise Plain City for taking such quick action yesterday when birds were getting in the Clock Tower and leaving little presents for us.  They caught one and hopefully will catch the other one soon.  Plus they found the open screen and took care of that.  Yea!

Miami Valley Steam Thresher corrections for 2018: featuring “Ford unusual and rare,” not John Deere as I’d read somewhere else.  Sorry for the mistake.  The parade is at 6:00 p.m. tonight and as always starts at pastime park and goes through downtown Plain City.  Come early to get the best seats and parking.  Our parking lot may be used as well for this event.  Just park wisely and don’t block our alley.  There are SO MANY events going on, including my husband selling lots of tools, Primitives, and such awesome stuff.  I want all of his items, so he usually doesn’t show me because he doesn’t want me to beg for them.  More information can be found at the Miami Valley Steam Thresher’s website, mvsteam.com..

BICENTENNIAL WINDOWS
We've worked very hard on putting items in our windows that might have been used by people that were living when Plain City was first started and during its early years.  Stop by and see if you know what all of the items were used for and then come inside to see lots more!!  Be sure to check out all the events that are happening to celebrate Plain City's 200 Year Birthday!!
            68th Annual Miami Valley Steam Thresher’s Show
Located in the peaceful, shaded Pastime Park in
Plain City, Ohio on North Chillicothe St.
July 12th (R) - July 15th (Sun) from 10 - 7
2018’s Feature:  John Deere

So much to see and do!!!  First you’ll want to visit my husband’s area with lots of awesome tools, primitives, cast iron, woodworking items, and so much more for sale!  Then you can go see the other exhibitors that have lots of things for sale too.  But of course the main things are the tractor displays, steam and gas engine displays, tractor and truck pulls, lawnmower races, horse pulls, unbelievable food at every turn, lots of nice people… and all for $5!!  Best of all, bring the kids and show them a piece of history for free!!  Kids under 12 get in free.  

Don’t forget the free parade on Friday night through Plain City.  Not sure what time it begins, but usually around 5:00 or 6:00.  Lots of candy thrown out for the kids so bring a bag for it and the trash!  Come have fun in Plain City.  Check out our windows while you’re there.  If you see something in the window you want, give me a call and I can possibly give you the price and then we can hold it for you if you want it.  ALWAYS check out our ever changing window decorations because it’s all for sale, except in December when the animated items are there.  Those we keep from year to year.  Of course, if we’re open come in!!!

CAR HOOD ORNAMENTS
Found an awesome sight for car hood ornament identification.  He doesn't have the prices but at least you'll know what vehicle and year(s) on which it belonged. He directs you to another site, which I've also listed:

BREYER HORSES
We unpacked LOTS of brand new in their original boxes Breyer horses.  They range in age, but most are within the last two decades.  I'd say we have at least 40 in right now and at least 200 unboxed ones that are older yet to come.  Those won't be out for awhile though.  We're only putting a few online because we have so many other products that we want to get on as well.  Please remember we have OLD and NEW items!
