Mr. Retro and I went to an amazing Estate Sale on Saturday!
(You are forewarned...lots of photos here!)
One of the water views from the home
Our view as we approached the mini-mansion.
(Would love to know what these folks paid for the floor lamp.)
I wanted a photo of the Estate Sale sign, but this woman suddenly appeared
with her Corgi. Actually, fitting because ALL the profits of this sale
were for the benefit of our local county Humane Society.
Thank you philanthropists!
More gorgeous views and manicured grounds.
Wouldn't you like to sit on this portico with a glass of wine~enjoying the view?
Or on this patio overlooking the fountain, gorgeous even though
there is no water circulating through it now.
Or how about a night in this amazing guest house?
It was so lovely, with a gorgeous bath and mini gourmet kitchen.
or even in the garage...yes, this is the side of the garage!
Look at all the wonderful stone and brick work everywhere.
Aaahhh...how the other half lives.
It wasn't easy to be able to take "inside" photos, but I did get a few.
This piece was in the guest house. A Cherry wood cabinet (used as an end table)
from circa 1860, for $260. Probably a good price for the piece, but out of my league.
We headed back up the hill to the main house.
The marble topped table and sweet daybed were also for sale.
Loved the bed, $500.
Some Wedgewood china, Hathaway Rose, for $125.
A bargain compared to most of the prices.
Many lovely items, unfortunately none came home with us,
but just getting to visit was such a fun experience.
On the way home we passed a thrift we had never seen before, for the benefit
the local volunteer firefighters. A great cause and cheap prices ~ Woo Hoo!
Vintage cards and lace for crafting (10 cents each lace, hem facing, and deck of cards),
Delta airline cards (also 10 cents) for Mr. Retro, lovely vintage linen runner (25 cents)
and hand towel (10 cents).
No kidding! Who sells anything for 10 cents anymore?
unmarked yellow-ware mixing bowl
Well worn bottom. Anyone recognize it? My big purchase of the day, $1, LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by.......and putting up with so many photos,
but I couldn't leave any of those Estate Sale shots out!
What goodies did you find on Saturday?
Doyle was just exhausted after all that shopping!
