ESTATE SALES & AUCTIONS

 

FEATURED ...

The Jewel Box ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Lovely North Dallas home off of Hillcrest Road filled with contemporary styled furniture tastefully done.  You know what we mean, not so “NOW” as to be out of style within months.  Fred and I would see ourselves decorating with the custom glass-top console table with frosted glass edge ... or the zebra print arm chair.  The pub table with two leather bar chairs is perfect for empty nesters who just want to fix a plate in the kitchen and enjoy dining together.  A perfect table for us.  When it comes to furnishings for the den or great room, overstuffed is exactly what we’re looking for.  Rusty’s Custom Kilim Sofa & Pillows with Matching Henredon Chair and Over-Size Club Chair & Ottoman fill the bill.  It’s such a wonderful home with relaxed atmosphere, you’ll enjoy the shopping experience.  And you might even come home with a number of treasures that start with ...

Heirloom Estate Sales ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  The homeowners are citizens of the world with homes in Switzerland and France.  Now they’ve decided to “downsize” leaving a wide range of beautiful furnishings behind from their time in Texas and abroad.  But come anticipating much more!  I’m personally impressed with the framed watercolors by Mary Rogers and the entire backyard overlooking the golf course covered with patio furniture, bird baths, and cement planters.  My favorite piece in the sale?  You know it has to be the mid-century style surf board coffee table with glass top.  It’s an iconic piece Fred and I’d love to own (along with the 2 McGuire barrel chairs).  Fred also had to stop and check out the vintage barometer/thermometer and the tables covered in vintage electronics that included a fabulous turntable ... top notch speakers ... and receiver.  You can bet everywhere will find something they can’t pass up.  Could it be?

Crown Estate Sales ... in Fort Worth starting Saturday.  Fred and I loved this place ... a moderately sized home with very nice furnishings.  The elderly homeowner kept everything in spic and span condition ... updated her furniture ... and had nice electronics and office equipment.  In fact, she purchased a blond contemporary bedroom set that is awesome.  There’s the king size bed, night stands, dresser with mirror, and tall chest.  After getting it home, she decided it wasn’t her taste and never used it.  It’s in the same room with her really cool costume jewelry.  Anyone looking to redo their living room, office space, bedroom, or kitchen, head straight to Fort Worth and shop with Brenda & David.  You’ll also find ...

Estate Sale Fanatic ... that’s exactly who lived in this house or so it appears.  The minute you walk up the sidewalk you’ll see the most ornate cast iron hall tree sitting on the porch.  Don’t worry about someone taking it ... it would take Hulk Hogan and a team of his friends to lift it!  More cast iron to be found inside along with the craziest collection of antique furniture, vintage and traditional men’s leather jackets, ladies’ designer clothing, architectural pieces, antique and vintage toys (and boxes), Playboy magazines, silverplate by the rooms full, Toby mugs and more.  This 2-story house and garage is a treasure trove.   Come prepared to dig (and stay awhile).  You have to see this sale to believe it!  Come looking for ...

Lorenda’s got one of the most fun sales of the weekend.  The house has 2 cool contemporary styled lamp tables complete with contemporary lamps.  The sage green sofa with red and sage colored pillows, a huge rectangular red ottoman, and the red easy chair with sage colored pillows are uniquely wonderful.  The garage ... well guys are going to love the hand and power tools and two car flags ...
