Estate Sale


Only the promise of a really good antique estate sale can get me out of bed early in the morning. This morning I headed into the city for just that and I was not disappointed. I picked up this great sailboat painting, signed oil on board and in a wonderful frame. It was a steal and I couldn't pay for it fast enough...$20 Omg, I would have paid more for sure! I also love old photos and got some of those too, I use the ones of the ladies in my display for my jewelry. They are eye catchers for sure, people always ask if they are my relatives.


T
he truck is still full of my finds and tomorrow I will bring everything up to my antique booth at Bright's Antique World. I also purchased an early 1840's rocker, it is pine and has a wonderful "shaker" look, an old door, pine table, a painted tin duck decoy and some folkart birds. I will try to remember to take some pictures tomorrow of my booth after I redecorate it. I am getting it ready for all the buyers that the Heart of the Country antique show brings in. Heart of the Country... It's the "grand-daddy" of American antiques shows, where the finest antiques and decorative arts from every region migrate to Nashville -- the crossroads of America --

  4. Judy,
    it looks like we were up to the same things. I absolutely love your new collection of old pictures...each with such character. You're living my dream though with your antique booth (maybe one day....). Oh how I would love to visit your booth. Maybe one day I'll make it to TN.....
