Estate Sale

Last Friday Les and I took a trip to New Jersey to attend an Estate Sale. Antiques were listed as one of the items and yes there were antiques, but many were too rich for this dealer to be able to turn around and make a buck. But, we did not leave empty handed. Many of the items in the pictures will go into our booth at Weil Antiques Center. and some just may be come part of my household, LOL. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend. We have a couple of events planned, one being that we have company arriving early next week, Whoa!! need to get this placed picked up a bit.

Where does the time go?

I just realized that I have been wanting to post for a week now. But,like Les posted on FB yesterday, he does not plan on leaving the house today because we have been going full tilt for 12 days now.Two Antique Shows two weeks apart, working three auctions two weeks apart and life in general has kept us on our toes to say the least. But, I had to show off my new purchase. I rarely shop at a antique show that I am set-up at. No time, don't want to spend the money, on and on it goes. But at our last show Les was asked by a long time friend and dealer to come look at a dry sink that he had. He came back and said you need to see this, I (Les) said he wouldn't really call it a dry sink, he thought more of a blanket chest. I LOVE blanket chests and have a few in our inventory that are not selling. But, off I went and fell in LOVE with this sweet little piece. Agreed on a very fair price and it was brought to our booth a short time later. Later on in the afternoon, our neighbor next to us at the show asked Les if he knew what I had bought. Les said, yeah a small blanket chest. Nope, I bought a commode chest, not really seen in the North much, more of a southern piece. Isn't it sweet. Thanks for stopping by, talk to you soon.

Happy June!

And since all this loveliness can not be Heaven. I know in my heart it is June.
