Susie Braden's Estate Sale ... in Waxahachie starting Thursday.  Collectors will be in Heaven shopping this sale with the many limited edition Lladro figurines, Waterford, Swarovski, Herend, Lenox, Disney Society figures, and more.  Fred and I offer kudos to the homeowner ... she certainly chose incredible pieces.  We certainly don’t want to overlook the fine antiques found in this sale ... the heavy brass half tester bed, rosewood chairs, and antique tables.  And finally, we think shoppers will definitely enjoy the backyard where they’ll find 3 concrete gargoyles, lots of garden furniture, and several terra cotta planters.  Waxahachie is a fun destination for collectors on the hunt ... especially if that hunt includes ...

The Jewel Box ... in Dallas starting Saturday.  Having grown up in Oak Cliff, I really thought I knew every area like the back of my hand ... especially one that’s just blocks away from the home where I grew up.  But this house is a complete surprise ... built at the top of a hill that backs up to a wooded area.  The Oak Cliff bike trail (Kiestwood) actually transverses the back of the property.  It’s a gorgeous home furnished with antiques that include Victorian parlor sets to contemporary seating on the 2nd floor.  At the back of the house is a sun room that runs around most of the home and populated with live plants, concrete benches, oversized planters, and statuary.  Inside you’ll find mountains of porcelain ... glass and crystal ... Capodimonte ... original art work and prints ... ornate mirrors ... rugs ... display cases filled with carnival glass, Fenton, Victorian lighting, and more.  Fred and I can’t begin to enumerate everything this sale has to offer, but we can say – DON’T MISS EVEN ONE DAY shopping with Rusty.  A sale that offers everyone some very special treasure ...
