Today I went to my own private estate sale!
|Franciscan Desert Rose and beautiful a beautiful Colclough pastel teacup/saucer set!|
|Pretty Johnson Bros plates and Limoges!|
My own private estate sale, how fun! If only I had limited income, I would have bought everything! I'm picturing some of the pieces I bought. I love the Franciscan Desert Rose set! This is the USA set, so it is vintage (the pieces made in England are newer). I have an entire place setting plus serving pieces!
|The serving bowl is at least 100 years old|
Another reason I feel lucky to have my own private estate sale, is I get a bit of history on the pieces! Most of the pieces were from Connie's Mom, or Grandmother! Connie actually ended up using the Desert Rose set as her everyday dinnerware!
Connie was also nice enough to hold some other items that I really want, so I may be going back in a few weeks! She will probably be selling what's left in her friend's garage sale, so she will call me before that. Oh, and my favorite thing of all time, green depression glass! I really think I just might have to buy all of those pieces!
She also had some beautiful vintage handbags that I really want (I have quite a nice personal collection, and yes, I do use them)!
So that was my fun Wednesday! I love coming home and going through everything! Now....where to put it!!
