ESTATE SALES

 Featured ...

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Dallas starting Friday.  TWO dynamite sales this weekend for DFW Estate Liquidators and they couldnt’ be more different.  The sale in Dallas is in an older downtown building that’s been converted into a cool contemporary loft filled with Cantoni furnishings.  If that’s your style, then you’d better put Cory’s estate sale at the top of your MUST-SEE list.  What did Fred and I love the most?  Hmm, let’s start with the living area.  The white leather sofa ... the two matching white leather club chairs ... and the glass and metal coffee table were amazing.  We loved the look as well as the comfort of this seating arrangement.  Now head into the dining area and feast your eyes on the round glass table with wooden graduated pedestal.  It’s beautiful, but the chairs are what make this our Star of the Sale.  The four brown snake skin arm chairs are a totally unique look that Fred and I think are irresistible.  Will it be the 1st item to sell?  Our prediction is YES!

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Fort Worth starting Thursday.  When Cory told us about this sale and how the homeowners were personal friends with the Brandt family, manufacturers of RANCH OAK in Fort Worth from the 1930's to the 1970's, we expected great things.  But who knew some of the pieces were custom made to fit alcoves and cutouts in this Fort Worth home (at least they appeared to be).  But Cory didn’t end the story there.  The husband owned a well-known, award winning Landscape Design Firm.  He and his wife were frequent visitors to the Nixon White House ... and there are plenty of pictures and news articles to prove it!  Are you hooked yet?  If not, then walk inside this home and see landscaping designs that include flowing water and waterfalls throughout several of the main rooms.  You can bet there were parties galore through the years.

Garnett Estate Sales & Dry Goods ... in Euless starting Thursday.  A house that is bulging at the seams with antiques and collectibles.  You’re going to love, love, love this sale.  It took us 3 hours to preview (can you imagine) all the antique lamps and chandeliers and accessories the homeowner collected, along with his collections of antique chairs, Meissen, glass (the green Depression Glass definitely caught my attention), and prints by Maxfield Parrish and R. Atkinson Fox.  But hold on, that’s just the beginning.  This man was a true collector who had an eye for antique telephones, old metal bookends and doorstops, shaving stands, and incredible antique furniture.  Engineers are inquisitive by nature and this man certainly was curious about everything!  

Rachael and her staff have spent more than a few waking (and sleeping) hours in preparation ... washing, cleaning, and staging hundreds of items and they still haven’t cleaned out the storage buildings.  So prepare yourself, this sale could go on for a couple of weeks.  Before we get too far along with our description, please note ...

Discovery Estate Sales ... Private Sale starting Thursday by Appointment Only.   A moving sale unlike the typical moving sale.  First, it’s in a gated community requiring an appointment with the Discovery Ladies (Barbara and Sandy).  Second, the furniture is absolutely beautiful and obviously custom made.  My favorite piece is the king size bed with ormolu trim.  Add to that the elegant chair with matching ottoman and the bedroom becomes fit for royalty!  And third, the lighting in this home is just as elegant as the furniture with a pair of crystal sconces and ornate crystal and metal chandelier.  The pics are all the motivation you need to make that appointment.  So get going and good look shopping for ...

FairMarket DFW Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Friday.

 

Fox Estate Liquidators ... in McKinney liquidating a Montessori School.  Preselling begins NOWNot an estate sale ... a business sale!  This Montessori School in McKinney closed and left behind everything ... from office equipment and supplies to rooms full of cool learning materials, sleeping cots, and child-size chairs, tables, and bookcases.  They’re two complete play grounds outside plus iron fencing that encompasses the entire property. AND EVERYTHING IS FOR SALE!  It’s hard to describe the fun the “adults” had (Mark, Fred and I) playing with the puzzles and materials that teach kids how to button their shirts, zip their coats, and tie their shoe laces.  My personal favorite was the display featuring a variety of door looks and how each one worked.   Of course, there were also  team games.  It took all of us to figure out what they were and how they worked.  The kids probably won’t have that problem!

Lake Highlands Estate Sale ... in Dallas starting Thursday.  If you love glass as much as Fred and I do ... then make a fast track to Whitehurst Drive in Dallas.  The homeowner is doing her own sale and she was quite the collector.  You’ll find a 50-year accumulation of Depression Glass ... Hobnail ... Fenton ... in a variety of shapes and colors.  I’ve got my eye on a vintage piece that would fit beautifully in my Christmas collection as well as a pretty little epergne sitting on a bookshelf.  GLASS ... GLASS ... and more GLASS all over the house.  But that’s not all.  There’s lots of wonderful silverplate serving pieces and fine china.  With the holidays fast approaching, both are a must for the well decorated dining table!
