Landmark Auction ... in Ennis Saturday morning.  Walking into Landmark Auction is always a treat for both Fred and me.  Just gazing on the beauty of the antique pieces makes me ooooh and aaaaah!  Well this month, it’s a fantastic shipment plus a large collection of antiques and collectibles from one family.  My eyes were drawn to the prettiest and rarest of all epergnes named Rubina Verde Victorian Vaseline Glass.  Fred has the same reaction when he saw the German Gustav Becker Oak Cased Wall Clock.  I was also drawn to a pair of Walnut Framed Leather Club Chairs. They have some wear, but they are so comfortable!  Then there’s the Rare Victorian Figural Napkin Rings I liked.  If it’s something cute you’re looking for ... the Folk Art Bear Carved Child's Chairs are exactly that!  For the art lovers out there, several original oils will win you over.  Everywhere you look ... more of the same!  Great antiques and collectibles.  Without a doubt, Saturday morning will see a full gallery of bidders along with those who prefer to place phone bids.  The only way Fred allows me to participate is to place my on-line bid.  Plenty of choices for everyone.  Now for a few more of our personal favorites.  (But check out the catalogue in case we miss a few.)

Discovery Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Friday.  Wow, the Ladies are styling this week ... as in Oriental styling!  My favorite is the 3-drawer Oriental chest ... or the Oriental figures ... or even the Oriental display case.  Fred went for the antique oak entry hall umbrella stand (not so big it overpowers) ... the oval mahogany and glass coffee table ... and the octagonal lamp table/bookcase.  I know we’re all over the map, but it’s such a cool sale offering all kinds of unique treasures.  Together Fred and chose the mahogany corner cabinet and a unusually small armoire with plenty of age as having STAR POWER.  Both pieces are something that would work for almost any home.  Fred made sure to point out a unique looking bar ... small, but perfect for high rise living.  You will love shopping this sale because of the great furnishings ... and the FUN Ladies doing the sale.  Now on to the details ...

Help Me Ronda ... in Dallas starting Friday.

 

JLA Treasures Showroom ... This week open on  Wednesday and Saturday in Richardson.  GREAT TIMING – Just before Valentine’s Day!  Carol will have the Showroom open 2 days this week instead of just Wednesday.  Here’s why.  Many shoppers headed to Jefferson, TEXAS last fall to shop the incredible antiques and collectibles offered at the River City Mercantile Liquidation.  The store had to be emptied before Carol and her staff had time to prepare all the contents for the auction.  Also, the 2nd story of the building was home to antiques that never made it downstairs during the original sale.  So all the remaining  merchandise was packed up and moved to storage until space was available in the Richardson Showroom.  That brings us to Valentine Week.  Everything is unpacked and staged.

Kellye Hollis Estate Sales ... in Flower Mound starting Friday.  A mother-in-law sale!  The family has been holding on to Mom’s treasures from two families and its time to let go.  Mostly a collectible sale that has some of the coolest pieces we found in a long time.  My favorites ... The University Songbook featuring school songs from major universities around the country.  Fred found a basketball trophy that’s back from his days running up and down the court!  Sports enthusiasts will find vintage Auction Lures in their original boxes, reels, and an adorable fish planter from bygone days.  Guys will enjoy playing with the vintage Hot Wheels (with carrying case) and a collapsible top hat.  Everywhere you look ... the unexpected treasure.  There is furniture which includes ...

Remington Estate Sales ... in Dallas starting Thursday.  This week José, Georgette, and Stephen along with their wonderful staff are in “Little Lochwood” ... close to White Rock Lake.  Whether you call it Lochwood or East Dallas, the location is great for finding cool estate sale treasures like a retro bar and vintage barware ... an ornate Victorian server with marble top and tile back splash (Fred’s favorite piece) ... and quirky art work.  The homeowner (who is moving to South America) has a good eye for antique and vintage clocks – both mantle and grandfather.  But I have to admit, it’s her designer purses and vintage clothing that I’m coveting!  What a fabulous Valentine’s Day it would be if someone you loved gifted you with the Louis Vuitton or Gucci handbag.  A wonderful sale that offers ...
