FEATURED ...

 

PAC Shoppe Auctions ... in Dallas Saturday Evening.  Steve is kicking off the 1st week of summer with A BLAZING HOT AUCTION.  The STAR of the AUCTION was easy to find.  It’s the 1969 Chevrolet Giveaway Corvette with 6.0 hp Gasoline engine.  It’s the first one of its kind I’ve seen and something any kid would love to have ... and that includes Fred.  While that may be the STAR, there certainly are several additional treasures I see as rivals to the Corvette ... sterling silver flatware ... sterling, white gold, and gold diamond jewelry ... rare pieces of Roseville pottery ... Murano Figures (with gold and silver flakes) ... Carnival Glass ... and my very favorite piece – the Marx Merrymakers Tin Litho 1935 Band windup toy!  I even liked the vintage Inspector Gadget doll.  After all that you’d think I’d exhausted my list of favorites, but no way.  There’s the Child’s Antique Vanity Mirror & What Not Shelf ... the Art Deco Hood Ornaments ... and the Copper & Metal Floral Electrified Oil Lamp.  Fred had as many favorites as I did.  In addition to the 1969 Chevy Corvette, there’s all the Plastic and Metal Art Deco Letters and several of the brass instruments (Spencer Polar I Meter Brass On Cast Iron Stand and the Antique Optometrist Eye Exam Machine, Cast Iron & Brass Ophthalmometer).  One of the best collectible auctions you’ll see this year!

Family & Friend Estate Sale ... in Richardson starting Friday. Step back in time to the mid-50's.  Once you do, you’ll be on Daniel Street in Richardson.  The homeowners married in 1952 and moved into their home in 1956.  There they stayed their entire life.  You can see from the pics the husband worked at the original Mrs. Baird’s Bread factory on Central Expressway for 50 years.  He’s got the banner, the picture of the original building, and the leather jacket to prove it.  Another cool item is the vintage National Reel to Reel Tape Recorder 776.  But that’s hardly the only “vintage treasure” you’ll find.  There’s a vintage Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer children’s book ... a cardboard cut out of a fireplace with red chimney (perfect waiting for Santa to arrive) ... Tonka truck ... dolls ... and LPs.  Now for the most unique item Fred and I have run across at an estate sale ... (2) Restland Cemetery Plots (heavily discounted).  Get ready for a little time travel when you head to Richardson for a shopping spree.

Heirloom Estate Sales ... in Fort Worth starting Friday.  Karen and Sue have taken a little time off, but they’re ready to get back to doing sales.  This week you’ll find both ladies in Fort Worth in a home furnished with a mix of traditional, mid-century, maple, and a splash of shabby chic.  Things that caught my attention immediately ... the jewelry cases.  I had to stop and check out the Miriam Haskell and Hattie Carnegie pieces while Fred considered the men’s vintage watches and pocket watches.  I could see the gleam in his eye, but quickly distracted him with the vintage train collection (Lionel 027 Engine, Coal Car, two cargo cars and caboose) and Trek bike.  Before he could ask, I threatened him with another set of china (Theodore Haviland, Spode, or Churchill) if he dared to buy another watch.  Actually, we both are such estate sale shoppers, who could blame us if we decided to buy our favorites or maybe something different like the ...

Help Me Ronda No. 2 ... in Dallas starting Saturday.  The 2nd of Ronda’s sales this week is a moving sale.  The homeowner loved his alma mater – Notre Dame.  And Fred and I both loved his executive chair in the school colors with the school’s logo on the headrest.  I personally would skip the chair and head straight to the navy blue front loading washer/dryer set (with pedestals) and from there to the shelves covered in Waterford crystal and the gorgeous drapes!  Two sales that will be the “Talk of the Town.”  More goodies on hand include ...

M&C Estate Sales ... in Plano starting Thursday.  She’s done it again.  Maryanne has another FULL HOUSE shoppers are going to love!  We have to start off in the sewing room.  It’s outfitted with a commercial Bernina sewing machine and work table ... a Hasqvarna serger ... a PND Hi-Steam Vacuum Ironing Board ... and the piece d’resistance – the Wolf form mannequin with cast iron base and arms.  The room wouldn’t be complete without all the accessories we associate with a professional seamstress ... notations, patterns, fabric, and containers to keep everything separate (think “Container Store”).  Since I can’t sew a lick (as mommy would say), I’m more in love with the MCM table with metal top and painted chairs ... the great contemporary rugs ... and the TGI Friday’s original menu in a spiral notebook.  This house is a treasure chest that will have hunters out in force hoping to buy ...
