Estate Sales by Mike & Jackie ... in Allen starting Thursday, October 23rd!  The homeowner and her mother purchased only the best antiques and collectibles and were frequent shoppers at several Antique Malls (especially the Limited) throughout the Metroplex!  It’s now time to downsize and find new owners who will love and appreciate the many European and American pieces ... ornately carved servers, oak dining table with paw feet, French tables covered in ormolu, parlor sets, a tester bed, and my personal favorite ... the large cut glass lidded vase.  Fred had a difficult time choosing just one favorite ... originally it was the tall walnut book case ... then he changed his mind and chose the Victorian full size bed (complete with rails, head and footboards).

Heirloom Estate Sales ... in North Richland Hills starting Friday.  An absolutely wonderful and unique sale that demands your attention.  This North Richland Hills home is fille with Orientalia, Primitives, Southwestern, Western Art, and  Pottery ... and that's just for starters.  Wait, we forgot to mention traditional furnishings too!  Everyone will find something (make that lots of somethings) we consider must-have treasures.  But first ... KUDOS to Karen & Sue for putting this awesome sale together.  It took a lot of work and more than a few “man-hours” to stage something of this magnitude.  And a shout out to Debbye Berry who works with us for those fantastic pictures.  How do we describe this sale?  We’re leaving it to the experts who have spent time touching and handling every piece you see!   Karen and Sue, it’s all yours!

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  It has been too long since we’ve seen a really good “Man’s Sale” and then Cory and his staff pop up with two ... this one in Fort Worth and another one in Carrollton.  The Fort Worth homeowner is what Fred calls a Man’s Man in a home filled with hunting, fishing and golfing gear.  And he was good at all of it.  Just check out those trophies.  He was so good at golf he was a “Marshall” at tournaments and has the hats and shirts to prove it!  As for his hunting and fishing gear, it covers several tables ... more than a few binoculars, duck calls, reloading supplies, a laser range finder ... tackle boxes full of lures, rods and reels, camping gear for when he wants to spend the night in the “wild” and the appropriate clothing to blend into a certain terrain.

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Carrollton starting Friday.  Another great “Guy Sale” this weekend by Cory and his crew!  This one starts off with a fully loaded automobile ... a 2000 Toyota Avalon with 116,000 mile.  It’s a beauty and really clean.  From the car, let’s head directly to the garage where you’ll find a Honda generator ... a Honda lawn mower ... and a Husqvarna leaf blower (Fred says that’s a big deal).  But the garage floor is the STAR here.  It’s totally covered in interlocking rubber mats.  One more “must have” for the guys ... a Rubber Maid storage building for all those power tools and lawn equipment.  Whew.  Now, for the ladies.  The home is filled with very nice furnishings ... from the microfiber (leather look) sofa and matching love seat to the ladies’ writing desk.  The dining table with matching server ... the 4-poster bedroom set ... it all definitely shows a more feminine touch to the home.  Another “special” piece that brought a smile to my face (and will be a hit with the ladies) is the pink and green dinnerware.

Estate Sale & Consignment Auction ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Mark this date down in your calendar ... October 24th, 2014!  It’s when The Purveyors (Bonny West) and DFW Auction (Martin & Kirk) changed the face of the estate sale/auction industry by combining their efforts and creating an even better venue than either could produce separately.  It starts off with an estate sale this Friday and Saturday in The Dallas Design District ... a huge warehouse covered in over 1,500 pieces of fine furnishings (antique, traditional, mid-century, and contemporary furniture), rugs, art work, and decoratives.  Shoppers who love estate sales will feel right at home heading to 1715 Market Center Blvd.  The BIG SURPRISE comes when you see the pricing ... 1st day is unbelievably affordable.  So make your purchases, load up the SUV, and head home.  It really is that simple.

Art Rousseau Estate Sales ... in Tyler starting Friday.  Art has found an interesting sale for this next weekend and in a new location for him - Tyler, Texas.  The sale comes from a Dallas family that he has worked with twice before and is a combination of one person downsizing from 4000 square feet to 2500 square feet AND taking all of her mother's things out of storage.  Art did two sales for the mother in Dallas and was excited to see the quality things that are still available to sell.  There is not a lot of furniture, but the KITTINGER dining furniture, the AUFFRAY and CO bedroom furniture and other miscellaneous pieces really look good.  Add to the mix a sprinkling of Steuben, Waterford, Baccarat and MilleFiori and the sale begins to take shape.

FairMarket DFW Estate Sales ... in the "M" Streets starting Friday.  The homeowner was in her 90's when she passed away.  Her home has a box full of old photographs ... several Zeta scrapbooks from the 60's and 70's (she was the social secretary and historian) ... and our Star of the Sale – a French Provincial style dining table with marble top and ladder back chairs.  It’s such an elegant piece, we can see her serving her sorority sisters tea at one of their many events.  There’s another interesting piece Fred couldn’t resist and that would be a copper topped round coffee table.  It’s just different enough to draw his attention.  Bobbi and Cindy have a good old fashion estate sale that shoppers will enjoy.  It starts off with ...

Harriett Martin Estate Sales ... in Plano starting Friday.  The home of a longtime collector, dealer, and estate sale enthusiast.  She’s heading to The Hill Country to relax and enjoy her favorite past time (besides shopping estate sales) – painting.  Everyone knows Sue Warner.  She’s a fantastically fun individual all of us will miss.  But before she leaves town, there’s business to be done.  That’s where Harriett Martin comes in.  Harriett has spent the week prepping for the start of a great estate sale full of collectibles and home furnishings.  My favorites are the vintage Halloween and Christmas.  Fred adds to the list the vintage Budweiser clock/advertising sign and the Zenith Transoceanic portable radio.  I counter with the collection of Quimper.  Fred finishes off with Braniff photos/framed pictures and a brass lamp with a seahorse finial. A sale that makes us smile ... just like the homeowner!  Get ready for more treasures starting with ...

Mosley's Memories ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  Another nice sale by Mosley’s Memories this weekend in Fort Worth.  We spotted loads of treasures even as Clarice was still staging.  You know that means we didn’t see all there is to this cool sale.  What we did see and loved are the Burgundy Leather Sofa, the assortment of great rugs & textiles, and the mid-century modern leather chair and ottoman.  For the ladies ... a stainless steel refrigerator.  For the guys ... a full garage and a backyard that’s a heavenly oasis covered in live plants.  And one last thing ... just in time for the holidays, lots and lots of Halloween and Christmas decor.  What more could you want?  Well let’s start with ...

Ruth Taylor Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Saturday.  Wait until you see this monstrous home located behind the Cooper Aerobics Center ... beautiful and absolutely full of furnishings, sterling, original art work, silver and gold jewelry, and coins.  It’s been a busy 3 weeks for Ruth and her staff, but the home is stagged and ready for shoppers.  The question is, “Are you ready?”  I fell in love with the furniture ... a mid-century sectional and a tiled table with Lazy-Susan centerpiece (another fantastic mid-century find).  Fred was admiring the framed art collected by the homeowner, a retired Marine General as I wandered over to the costume jewelry tables.  Prepare for a long stay if you hope to see all this estate has to offer.  A BIG HOUSE ... with an array of estate sale finds that include ...

Susan Williams Estate Sales ... in Richardson starting Friday.  Shopping this Richardson home is like landing on Treasure Island.  While you enjoy the antique and traditional furniture, it’s the original art work and collectibles that will cause your heart to flutter.  The 1st item to grab my attention was a book ... Tom Lea – A Portfolio of Six Paintings with an Introduction by J. Frank Dobie (1953), University of Texas Press, Austin.* From the book Fred and I both headed to the old paper that included a photograph from the 1920's of The Depot in Argle, Texas ... Bills of Sale (one of a slave woman and one for cotton, tuition, etc.) ... and a $100 bill from the Confederate States of America.  The homeowner obviously loved golfing.  Why else would he collect lots of books on the subject, an antique Auchterlonie golf club, and  Royal Bank of Scotland banknotes signed by Jack Nicklaus?  The entire house is covered in wonderful collectibles, so many you’ll need at least half a day to see everything.  But at the end of the day, make plans to return Saturday.  This sale is layers and layers of treasures.  Come prepared to dig for ...
