Attics to Basements #1 ... in McKinney starting Wednesday.  Whitney & his staff are McKinney bound again this weekend with another fabulous estate sale (1 of 3 for the weekend ahead).  The home is furnished with WONDERFUL TREASURES from furniture (antique and contemporary) ... to jewelry cases ... to the outdoor patio furniture.  Knowing where to start, now that’s the hard part.  If you love spending time with family and friends, start in the living room.  That’s were you’ll find the large overstuffed sectional that could easily seat the Dallas Mavericks.  While you’re seated pay special attention to the metal coffee table with storage.  It’s a unique piece that’s attractive AND functional.  In the same room with the sofa, there’s a game table that caught Fred’s attention.  Nice set with leather arm chairs.


Attics to Basements #3 ... in Deep Ellum starting Friday.   NO OTHER SALE LIKE IT!  Not this weekend or next.  A sale located in Deep Ellum in the studio of Native American Merle Tech.  He lived and worked in the same building so when you see his creations, you’ll also notice his living space filled with all the things you’d find at an estate sale.  But no one is going to call this a “typical” sale.  Mr. Tech worked in metal and wood which is why his studio/garage/home comes complete with huge metal free standing globes, a variety of different woods (from small to large), industrial carts (how else can you move his designs), and every possible hand and power tool to cut, chisel, buff, clamp, and engrave.  In addition to what we think a sculptor would use, Merle Tech utilized important elements of his Native American ancestry.  We found tables covered in feathers, tortoise shells, wood blankets, bleached animal skulls, and skins.


DFW Liquidators ... in Garland starting Friday.   When you see the beauty of this 7600 sq. ft. colonial style home from the outside, your adrenaline starts to pump.  Ours did as we approached the front door and walked into the foyer to meet the lovely couple.  While all the furnishings are top notch you’ll feel right at home.  The dining room is home to a banquet size table with eight chairs and a massive china cabinet (3 sections with buffet space in the middle).  In the middle of this expansive table ... a pair of elephant candelabras.  Formal, but fun!   From the dining room Fred and I crossed the hall to the executive office where I went straight for the desk while Fred headed straight to the leather recliner.  For him, the rough manly look of the leather is the No. 1 attraction in a recliner and then it’s comfort.  A+ for both.


Discovery Estate Sales ... in Highland Park starting Saturday.

Attics to Basements #2 ... in Dallas starting Thursday.  An absolutely immaculate home in Oak Cliff.  This little lady was a homemaker through and through and she had cool vintage that includes Hollywood Regency style furniture ... great lighting ... and vintage glassware that has me waking Fred early to drive over and stand in line.  When we went through her closet, what did we find but a vintage bed jacket and a number of short wigs.  When Fred teases me about getting my hair died, I guess I should point out that women have been “hiding” their true hair color for years (and probably always will).  So come join me and others as we enjoy shopping this Oak Cliff sale that offers ...

D'Lux Estate Sale ... in Dallas starting Thursday Afternoon.  RARE piece for mid-century lovers ... a Herman Miller Noguchi coffee table.  All we can say is “Watch out for the stampede when the sale opens.”  After the herd makes it through the door, the rest of the shoppers are safe so they can browse for furniture ... kids furniture ... an amazing collection of toys ... and children’s clothing.  Parents with young children are going to have a blast buying the kid size Harley Davidson and pink jeep ... toys by Little Tikes, Fisher Price, Imaginarium, and Step 2.  Our suggestion: buy one of the large toy boxes and fill it up with all kinds of toys for the young ones!  Let dad do that while mom goes for the Keurig Coffee Maker.  Donna’s sale is fun for the entire family.  So let’s start shopping ...
