Time to Start Thinking About Estate Sales Again! Status: Urged Forth by RetroRenovation.com
I was poking around RetroRenovation.com today and was inspired by Pam's posting about a light fixture she spotted at an Estate Sale. I decided to drag out some pics from some of the estate sales that I've been to in the past.
Pam's website / blog, RetroRenovation.com, is an Invaluable source of information for those like myself who appreciate the original style of their homes. Today she blogged about an estate sale she recently checked out and the great items both available and not so much.
I've been hitting estate sales for years now and once in a while you see some really great "time capsules" and sometimes I remember to take some pics. The image quality isn't the best because of light and the limitations of a camera phone but you can get the idea. I promise this year to take the Real camera and get better pics to share.
Anyway, some of these pics aren't actually Estate Sales, they are from an Estate Auction that we attended on New Years Morning Last Year that was such a bust (Great Stuff but prices went astronomical) that it really soured me on getting up early on the weekends and all the effort. We didn't hit many this last year at all. But now I'm ready to get back on that horse!
