Snow Shovels in August!

I've never seen a vintage child-sized snow shovel, let alone one with such splendid graphics.

I'm not ready to dig out the mittens, even in 90+degree heat, but I'll gladly enjoy this little snowy treasure.


XOXO

What a work of art! I bet you are already planning some amazing wintry display with it to show off in months to come. Never seen a child size snow shovel, either.

Absolutely stunning. It has to be an Ohio Art piece. Must be worth a mint. Considering the sand shovels alone are ridiculous. Just might be a favorite find...smiles...Renee

I've never seen one of these either, but gosh is it cute! I'm so drawn to all of this old tin litho stuff right now, and I guess everyone else is too, because it's SO expensive on Ebay!
Happy REDnesday,

I guess if you are making the kids shovel snow they might as well have a fun shovel to do it with.
