Country Garden Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting WEDNESDAY.  25% OFF ON FRIDAY!
From ORDINARY to EXTRAORDINARY ... with plenty of stops in between.  This may be the most unique sale Fred and I have ever seen ... actually a combination of two estates.  One part is the Living Estate of Photographer Manny Rodriguez located in his 15,000 sq. ft. studio.  The other part is the estate of a Texas Wild Catter/Oil Man who married into a New England family from a ship building dynasty.  The ship building family originally left Spain & Portugal, arrived in South America, and immigrated to New York.  We describe this sale as high tech meets Old World.  There's lots to see so allow yourself plenty of time to browse.

DFW Estate Liquidators #1 ... in Euless starting Friday.  What started as a good sale ... just went ballistic!  Yes, there’s all the standard items you’d expect to find in an estate sale, but they’re not standard.  How many sales have you seen with a “DALE ERNHARDT custom Monte Carlo Race Car Desk?  Or how about a Huge Snap-on Dale Ernhardt Commemorative Edition Tool Box.  It’s in pristine condition because the homeowner only used it to store his collectibles?  If you aren’t familiar with Dale Ernhardt, he was an American race car driver who gained fame as a stock car driver for NASCAR and for winning seven Winston Cup championships.  Add a coin collection to the other hundreds of collectibles and this sale rises to the TOP!  But we aren’t through.  There’s a table (and underneath) covered in Coca-Cola collectibles .. The garage is filled with power tools and storage cabinets plus a sandblasting enclosure and compressor (media blaster) Fred’s all gaga over!

The Jewel Box ... in Dallas starting Saturday.  After the double header weekend Rusty had, Fred and I were sure he and his staff would take a break this week.  But that’s not in the cards.  In fact, Rusty says he’s busy beyond belief and for estate sale people like us ... that’s a very good thing.  So what can you expect to find this weekend at The Jewel Box?  Fabulous Furniture starting with ... Hancock & Meure Leather Sofa; Empire Modern Server; Theodore & Alexander Side Tables; Henredon Acquisitions Line Coffee Table; Handmade Persian & Contemporary Design Rugs.

Ambrosia & Co. Estate Sales ... in Plano starting Tuesday.  What do you do when the house sells practically over night?  You call Nancy Chesser and she works her magic preparing an estate sale for a mid-week start.  Yes, the sale starts on Tuesday and runs until 5:00 pm (not Nancy’s usual hours) and then again on Wednesday until 6:00 pm ... again, a departure from the norm.  So don’t forget, but if you do, we’ll send out an e-mail on Monday reminding everyone about a house full of designer furnishings.  Nancy describes it this way ...

DFW Estate Liquidators #2 ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  Start in Fort Worth; start in Euless; wherever you go first, you’ll have a great shopping experience with Cory and his crew!  Fred and I are always looking for great furniture and we found plenty at the Fort Worth sale ... the sage colored micro fiber sofa with a pair of matching chairs are stand outs!  Notice the pillows on the sofa match the seat cushions on the wingbacks, while the rest of the chair covering matches the sofa.  Nice touch.  I also noticed the cabinet full of Santa Claus figures and had to stop and check out each one.  Fred slid past me and went straight to the set of Gorham Sterling silver flatware and that adorable multi-colored gecko on the wall (he’s not real).  Whether you’re updating your furniture ... looking for collectibles ... or finally buying that KitchenAid mixer you’ve been wanting ... head to Fort Worth.  You’ll also find plenty more starting with ...

Estate Sales by Anthony ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Tony took a little longer getting this estate sale together than anticipated (it was scheduled for last weekend), but when you see the pics, it becomes clear.  THE HOUSE IS FULL of wonderful furnishings, a boat load of collectibles, and the kind of stuff every estate sale shopper looks for.  Before we share the details, Tony tells us this is the estate of a retired Dallas pawnbroker who had a store in Downtown Dallas for years.  The family has been wonderful from the start making this one of Tony’s Top 10 sales ever!  Now to the details ... you’ll find one entire room dedicated to sports cards ... baseball and more.  For watch collectors, here’s a new one on us ... 70 lbs of metal watch bands.  My personal favorites are the vintage 45's ... the animals, “The House of the Rising Son” complete with dust jacket tops my list, but Ann Margret’s “So Did I,” is at the top of Fred’s list.  One last thing before we get going, the house is a tear down which means light fixtures, drapes ... everything is for sale!  Now comes the list ...

Fabulous Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Thursday. It’s been too long since we last saw Helene Glazer, but she’s back this weekend with a sale that’s filled to the brim.  Fred started with pics in the backyard and he could have stopped there if you ask me.  The collection of metal sculptures is, well ... FABULOUS with a life size moose ... the cutest dog weathervane ... and two metal cactus paired with a cement birdbath that’s looks like a cactus wearing a sombrero!  And that’s only a few of the items in the back.  Inside the house ... lots of quality china, a Waterford light fixture that’s really unique, and a Baldwin piano with 2 antique piano stools.  Helene’s eclectic sale will have shoppers standing in line to buy ...

JLA Treasures ... in Dallas starting Friday.  We found it ... this is it ... the sale that has it all!  Carol’s Dallas sale is full of “treasures” that I love for me (and my hubby, Fred), but it’s also got perfect gifts for family and friends.  Do you have someone that collects vintage toys?  If so, the boxed toys Carol found in the attic are a “must see” ... an Attacking Martian ... an Astronaut ... and a bright red Fire Engine ... all three have their original boxes and would be cherished gifts for any collector.  For the mother-in-law who always makes your favorite dessert for Christmas dinner ... a 66-piece set of Wallace sterling in the Grand Baroque pattern or a set of Lenox china in the Presidential pattern.  There’s even the perfect gift for those Cowboy fans in the family ... a pair of Dallas Cowboy jean jackets by Gear.  I even found a gift Fred would love.  But let’s move on and talk about ...

Loretta's Estate Sales ... in Richardson starting Friday.  The homeowner has moved to assisted living and left behind some very nice things ... all very good and clean ... and even one standout Fred calls “NEAT.”  It’s the oak slip top dining table with 4 chairs.  It’s the kind of thing antique collectors will love!  Something I think is irresistible ... the quilt top featuring all 50 states and the emblem of each state’s flower.   Loretta has priced everything to see, which is incentive enough to shop for ...
