ESTATE SALES & AUCTIONS

 

FEATURED ... 

 

Fox Estate Liquidations ... in Denton starting Friday. A Waterford Chandelier ... Sterling Silver ... Vintage Clothing ... Antiques ... Loads of China ... and Books, Books, and more Books, an estate sale that will draw crowds from the entire Metroplex.  There are no words to adequately describe this fabulous sale.  Fred and I loved ... the game room covered in mounts, leather seating, and an incredible antique desk.  The sun room has vintage wicker ... a wall covered in quilts ... vintage Christmas ... and Spode Christmas Tree (including lots of wonderful serving pieces, placemats, ornaments, and glassware).  Every room is exactly the same – filled with great estate sale finds (upstairs and down).  What will you find in Mark’s Denton sale?  Let’s just say Fred and I both were like kids in a candy store except it wasn’t candy, it was antiques and collectibles.  Bring an SUV ... hitch a trailer to the back of your car ... or drive a U-Haul so you can head home with more than a few wonderful finds.

The Jewel Box ... in Highland Park starting Saturday.  Every estate sale professional has his or her favorite estate sale.  This week Rusty is in love with his Highland Park Sale.  The homeowners were extended members of the the Baker Hotel family.  For young people or anyone new to the Dallas area, The Baker Hotel was located at southeast corner of Commerce and Akard Streets.  It’s only competitor in the luxury market was The Adolphus, also located in the heart of downtown Dallas.  Now back to Rusty’s Sale ... One of the standouts in this sale is the framed art – originals by Henry M. Gasser, E. Cortes, Paul Le Masson, and Manuel Garza.  Other wonderful treasures to be found include Dresden, fine china by Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester, and Paris.  Fred and I both stopped to admire the Thomas Jefferson heirloom clock, the Kisabeth sofa (needing to be recovered, but excellent bones), and a John Widdicomb dining table with 6 chairs.  Every room has unique and wonderful treasures to see.  Before you finish shopping this sale, you may become as enamored as Rusty with the beautiful treasures throughout this house!

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Irving starting Friday.  The homeowner spent years as a photographer for National Geographic which means he traveled extensively.  It’s also obvious he had a wide range of interests which is why he has lots of electronics in addition to the photo equipment, negatives and slides.  You may feel a little light headed as you take in the volume of treasures at Cory’s sale, but relax, take a deep breath and dive into ... a mix of furniture ... gadgets specifically aimed at the electronic whiz ... small appliances and cookware for the serious chef ... and hundreds of CD’s and DVD’s.  I’m thinking of sending Fred off to investigate the garage, the collectibles (watches and knives), and all the camera equipment.  My plan is to relax, find a good book, and relax in the blue leather recliner or plop down on the upholstered sofa.  There’s so much to see at this sale, everyone will need a rest period before checking out!  Don’t leave before you browse through the ...

D'Lux Estate Sales ... in Hurst starting Thursday.  When you’re in need of someone with amazing organizational skills ... call Donna Nielson of D’Lux Estate Sales.  Before she moved to Dallas from Australia she was a professional Home Organizer.  She gave chaotic homes the boot.  Families loved her.  Now those same skills come in handy when the estate sale you have is a little “out of control.”  Boxes of jewelry were a tangled mess.  Vintage toys could be found from one end of the house to another.  Vintage kitchen wares were shoved into every nook and cranny that wasn’t already occupied.  With so much stuff ... how could anyone possibly see the great Kent Coffey bedroom furniture ... or the acoustic guitars ... or the ladies’ clothing and accessories.  A lifetime in one house means almost unlimited treasures from decades gone by.  It took Donna and her staff a lot of hard work (and a little bit of magic) to bring this fabulous estate sale to life.  Whatever you’re looking for ... vintage, traditional, or even contemporary ... you’ll find it this weekend in Hurst.  Fred and I don’t doubt shoppers will be excited when they discover these treasures ...

Without a doubt, everyone will enjoy shopping with Tony this weekend.  Hop on Hwy 175 and head east.  You’ll love finding cool treasures ...

M&C Estate Sales ... in Plano starting Thursday.  Really pretty home beautifully furnished ... Fred calls this sale “Super Spiffy” because everything is in great condition ... from the traditional furniture to the modern.  Fred spied a pair of vintage chairs (painted blue) he and I both liked.  I especially like the King Tom Thanksgiving dinnerware as well as the server it sits on.  But what’s really special about this sale is the garage ... filled with scuba gear ... camping equipment (which includes Lodge cast iron cookware) ... and power tools.  Even the backyard with its patio furniture ... live plants ... and garden statuary is something special.  Plano seems like “the place” to begin your shopping weekend.  We think you’re gong to love ...

MJ's Big Sale ... in Dallas on Saturday Only.  The family is preparing to move and they’ve decided to have a 1-Day estate sale.  You’ll find cool items ... tall wooden pedestals ... primitives ... lots of live plants ... along with furniture that includes a sofa, glass top coffee table, and lamp tables.  Fred and I actually loved the wingback chair with matching ottoman because of the upholstery.  We could see a gentleman relaxing with his pipe and reading the paper in such a comfy chair.  We also know that 24-7 shoppers are always on the lookout for garden statuary and patio furniture.  There’s plenty of both at this estate sale.  So head to St. Landry Drive on Saturday for this 1-day event!

Texas Estate Sales Svc (TESS) ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Fred thinks the best things in this cool sale are the cast iron toys and antique tricycle and scooter!  While I do love all the vintage toys (and there’s lots), my favorite is the cast iron bird bath.  Well maybe it’s the antique desk with green felt top.  The ornate gallery is what sold the piece for me.  Ladies will love the sterling tea and coffee service; collectors won’t be able to pass up the antique oak secretary; guys will gravitate to the musical instruments ... trombone, clarinet, and saxophone or maybe the lawn equipment.  Whatever it is you like about estate sales, expect to find it at TESS’s estate sale starting with ...
