ESTATE SALES

 

FEATURES  

DFW Estate Liquidators ... in Oak Cliff starting Friday.  Living in the southern most part of Oak Cliff just before you cross over into either Duncanville or DeSoto provided Fred and me an opportunity to lunch at family owned Cretia’s Flour & Flower for close to twenty years.  They’ve relocated their Duncanville bakery/tea room to one of the hottest locations in Dallas ... The Bishop Arts District as Cretia’s Eatery & Bake Shop.  With the move and rebranding of themselves, Cretia’s has filled a warehouse full of antiques, restaurant equipment, and furnishings from a design business (treasures found while helping family and friends redecorate their homes).  This multi-talented family can cook, belt out Southern Gospel favorites, and cater the most elegant weddings and parties.  Expect a sampling of tasty treats as you shop the Yorktown Street warehouse this weekend.  Some of my personal favorites from the preview were the antique cornices ... the antique cabinets (used to showcase fabulous pies and candies) ... hundreds of old chairs (from antique to ice cream parlor) ... leather and wingback chairs ... decoratives ... and a claw footed bathtub.  But if you want to know my absolute favorite ... it’s the old wooden revolving doors Cretia found during one of her “treasure hunting” expeditions.

D'Lux Estate Sales ... in Benbrook starting Thursday afternoon. A Present Tied Up with Ribbon ... the only way to describe this wonderful sale.  Danish Furniture throughout the house (the family lived in Denmark for several years) ... Ladies’ 14k Gold Jewelry ... a Lalique Perfume Bottle ... Militaria from the Korean War Era ... Two Autographed Pictures of the Homeowner and Jack Dempsey.  And if that’s not enough ... a Datsun 260Z Coup!  Shoppers have to see this sale.  I’d go just for the mid-century credenza by Dyrlund ... the glass dining table with V-shaped base resting on a marble ball and surrounded by mid-century chairs.  Fred agrees, but adds the art work ... originals and prints by Mort Kunstler, Basallo, and Melvin Phillips.  A wonderful sale happening in Benbrook at the perfect time of the year.  So many treasures starting with ...

There’s no slowing down for Rusty and his crew from The Jewel Box.  This weekend they’re in a lovely section of East Oak Cliff near one of the oldest golf courses in Dallas ...
