Joey MacArthur grits his teeth and lifts nearly 100 pounds of solid, rusty metal from atop a stack of tables. Once, perhaps a century ago, this ochre-tinged iron hay bale pulley, shuttled huge bales of hay inside a Northwest barn. Today, it’s one of the prides of the collection at the Wild Hare Vintage and Antiques in Snoqualmie, where Joey and his partner Tami Smith buy and sell finds. Like many treasures, though, it’s here today, and gone tomorrow. That’s by design, says Tami.
