The Girl That…

The first estate sale I ever attended…with my father…absolutely fell in love with the color and the almost pristine condition of the piece almost 60 years after the owner first purchased it for her family.

Since that first sale, I have attended several other auctions but my first sale, my first purchase is by far my favorite. More because my dad was there than anything else. He passed away about 9 months after this sale so he never got to see how much I love auctions/estate sales…probably as much as he did. I’m just grateful for this memory, the love my father had for all of his children as well as the love of antiquing he passed on to me…

I went looking for a sofa…you know one of those things that sit in your living space (Living Room, Family Room, Den, etc.).  Before the sale, I was looking at the pictures online and saw a fairly contemporary sofa that I thought would be a good fit for my house. It wouldn’t show dirt (the dog just doesn’t understand he should wipe his paws prior to jumping on the furniture)… it would somewhat match the rest of my decor… and best of all I figured I could get it for a reasonable price…

I have been devouring everything I read from Goodwill Hoarding as of late. Not because I love the Goodwill as much as these ladies do…but because I’ve discovered I already have a few pieces of Pyrex in my cabinets.

I don’t know the age of these items, so far I have obtained them at estate sales… so I would assume these are older pieces.
