Old Sled

Here is a photo of a very old and unusual sled.

It wouldn't hold up for any downhill races, but would be great sitting next to the fireplace or Christmas tree filled with gifts.

click on photo for closeup. $45

those sleds are very common in this part of Canada! I have a really great rocking horse on springs and a metal base...that I used as a child parents picked it up used at a garage looks like a carousel horse...and is made of very hard plastic..almost like porcelain...I will be in day...I plan to take shots of these things and post them...but the garage needs a good cleaning first!

I am 37 born 1971. You can still find those here for sale brand new! lol
the handles are metal on most and mine is too short for me...I felt like I was hunched over trying to pull it! there is a little metal rod along the bottom of my ski parts on mine...I really should just go out and take a pic of it if I can reach it in the is way up high!
