Estate Sales & Auctions

FEATURED ...

Heirloom Estate Sales ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  The color purple is associated with royalty (has been for centuries) which is why Fred and I started with a picture of the living room sofa and chairs accented with purple and lavender pillows.  The homeowner is 91+ years old (the exact age of Queen Elizabeth II) and just the kind of person you’d love to meet and hang out with.  She’s filled her home with a majestic collection of quality furniture ... china ... sterling and silverplate ... collectibles ... costume jewelry ... Orientalia ... and maintained it all in excellent condition.  You’ll see lots of vintage furniture as well as current up-to-date pieces which should please shoppers of every stripe.  Unfortunately, the homeowner won’t be in attendance; instead, she’ll be handling her royal duties elsewhere.   But she’s left Karen & Sue in charge of the sale – two of the best Sellers in the business!

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Weatherford starting Friday. I felt as if I had stepped back into my childhood the minute I saw the vintage figurines at Cory’s sale.  I loved everyone of the shows represented – Starsky & Hutch, Mork & Mindy, ChiPs, The Dukes of Hazzard, and Get Smart.  Oh, it’s a great estate sale filled with furniture and everything else the name implies, but it was the “TIME WARP” that had me smiling.  Made me want to pull up one the zebra print accent chairs and play with the dolls while the adults shopped for ...

C&C Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Friday.  A whole house full of nice furniture, but it’s the art work and the clocks that held Fred’s attention.  He liked the watercolor over the mantle by Keeley Halswelle best, but it was the oil painting of a waterfall by Davenport I truly loved.  The clock collection includes a 3-weight tall clock, a 3-weight grandmother clock, a German wall clock, several Vienna weighted regulators, an electric Bulova advertising clock. As Fred checked out the clocks, I made a bee-line to the bedroom and found several cool purses ... a Coach bag, a Brighton, and several by Ivanka Trump.  Mary’s sale certainly has all the bells and whistles you could want from an estate sale including ...

C2 Estate Sales~Dallas ... starting Friday.  Not one, but two incredible sales in one weekend for Charm ... one in Dallas and the other in Plano.  I especially love the more modern look to the Dallas sale with the Marge Carson inspired sofa and ottoman ... the ostrich leather chair and ottoman ... and of course, the designer clothing and shoes.  What does Charm think of her sale?  She says, “In a time of everyone downsizing, this homeowner has upsized to the Texas mansion. This lovely golf course home is filled with one-of-a-kind treasures from around the world.”

Jeff Hamlin Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Friday.  What a privilege to preview Jeff’s Highland Park estate sale ... home to the Skillern family, owners of Skillern Drug Stores.  I loved sitting at a Skillern’s soda fountain when I was just size and enjoying a banana split after buying my school supplies (something my parent’s treated my brother Mike and me to each new school year).  The house is old style traditional with lots of English antique furniture ... Oriental rugs ... sterling silver flatware ... silverplate serving pieces ... and fine art.  Fred claimed the 1820 Houghton Ormskirk tall case clock as his favorite piece in the sale, while I went for the china – Minton "Daventry" and Wedgwood "Bianca."  I couldn’t stop with china and ended up adding the knotty pine 4-poster and bed steps.  Shoppers will delight in this quality estate sale.  Go for the sale; stay and play with Suzie!  Now for the details ...

Out of the Attic ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Julie & Steve are helping friends with an estate sale that has very cool things.  I can’t get over how much I like the Heywood Wakefield Kohinoor MCM bedroom suite, especially the vanity with stool.  It’s such an unusual piece and someone will love owning it.  Then I found great vintage pottery – Steubenville Woodforest pottery in a variety of colors.  The petal-like edges make it a standout for me.  I could go on about the vintage radios and other interesting finds, but you need to see for yourself what a fun sale this is.  Let’s kick off the sale with ...

Texas Estate Sale Service (TESS) ... in Plano starting Friday.  I have to admit ... I am so excited about this sale.  Yes, it has great furniture (lots of contemporary pieces – leather, glass and acrylic) ... gold and sterling jewelry in addition to costume ... a walk-in tub that’s never been used ... an antique oak china cabinet Fred fell in love with ... and a lovely king size bedroom set.  BUT ... it’s the kitchen with its bakeware, cookware, small appliances, and kitchen accessories I’m most excited about.  The homeowner managed the culinary aspects of several different hotels.  Vendors must have sent him samples of their newest designs hoping he’d purchase them for the hotels.  Fred enjoyed wandering through the house and garage/patio area while I checked out the KitchenAid mixer ... cake pans and muffin tins (including silicone ones) ... a Cuisinart Food Processor ... and the Roshco bakeware.  It will take me as long going through the kitchen as it does for everyone else to browse through the house looking at ...
