Photos of the Estate Sale I'm Working At

Let's start with one of the doll houses. It's a large, 3 story. The owner of the house made at least 3 doll houses that will be for sale. It really is amazing how detailed this one is....let's take a peek inside...

The house also lights up. I love it. Let's have tea in the parlor and listen as the hostess plays the piano. WOW...I can see how fun and expensive this hobby could be.



Just some of the furniture...



Just some of the pictures.....



YES....awesome kitchen items...I may have to buy one of these treasures in the vintage sink!!!







The stove is electric and look at all the fun cooking items on the wall...





There are 3 bedrooms...here is just a peak of 2 of them... and just some of the vintage clothes







There is a Jenny Lind double bed for sale...and 3 awesome dressers. A couple with marble like the one above. Today we had to get into the attic and a vintage light was pulled out. It's awesome..




It's looking a lot better at the estate house. We were very productive today. I'm thinking it that we should be ready by the end of the week...


Okay...icky part so far...old bed linens that "reeked"...almost threw up because the smell was so bad...off to the garage they went. I can handle the ashes...smells ...not so much!!!


I hope you enjoyed the peak inside the estate house. I'm still loving getting it ready for the sale.


Hope you weekend is going well. Tomorrow I'm ushering at church and later we are going to bring the Hoosier hubby bought out to the antique store.


Warmly,

Deb :)

Kate Spike and Her KatS said...

Oh my goodness! That is one of the most incredible dollhouses ever! I am definitely going to get mine out of the box and start working on it--I already have quite a bit of furniture. I love how she put all those pots and pans in the sink--looks just like MY kitchen (and that reminds me, I need to do some dishes . . .).

I would go crazy over that doll house! It is my wish to have one... I don't know where it will go but I want one! lol Love the little vintage dresses and slips! So precious! What a job you've taken on!

The Queen of Clearance. said...

I wish I could come to your sell when it is done! Looks like tons of fun things!

Queenie said...

Hey Deb!
Oh I just loved the peek inside of that doll house! I want it! I would love to have a doll house like this one here, that you shared...I actually had a beautiful two story doll house when I was a little girl...it was wooden and had a wooden shingle roof and 8 rooms, it had front porches on both levels, but it was nothing fancy on the inside... just plain wooden walls on the inside. If I still had that thing today...I could doll it up so cute with wallpaper, lighting ect... ect! Maybe one day I'll have room for one..I can see what an expensive hobby that would be too!
Gosh, you got snow...amazing! It's been in the 90's down here and I am soooo tired of the humidity and heat....cooler temps are supposed to be on the way this week...fingers crossed!
Jackson Brown looks so cute....now, why on earth wouldn't he like sporting that cute sweater?! LOL!
Hope you are having a great day!
Big Hugs,
Queenie
P.S. we had to postpone our trip to the flea market, due to the unpredictable weather forecast....that's the way it goes sometimes.

Barb said...

sweetjeanette said...

oh my, the side by side cabinet reminds me of the "one that got away" from me at a community yard sale! I was about 10 minutes too late. LOL. and the pump!!!! Oh I've been looking for one of those for ages. My father used to have one in his orange grove. Now my husband is a salesman for a pump systems company and he looks for "all things pumps" LOL. I loved looking at all your pics!
Come see me sometime!

I don't know how you can get anything done with all of that eye candy around you ... simply amazing! I had to laugh when I noticed the junk in the doll house attic! tee~heeee ... If I were there, I'd snatch up those white enamel strainers hanging on the wall ... I cannot wait to see what you finally end up with when it's all over ... such FUN!!

Hey there sweet friend!

Been meaning to get over here and visit with you! Is this something you do on the side, helping with estate sales. Looks like some great vintage/antique goodies in there! So up your alley, so to speak!

So...I am wondering if you ever see any of the Owls that have glasses, like the wise ole owls s/p shakers...I have a friend who'd like me to make some for her. She teaches and their theme this year is As Wise as an Owl...so we thought it might be cute to do up some tassels. And..if ya have any other beauties and want me to make ya another tassel..just let me know...okay?

I will keep you guy in my prayers as well..times sure are tough it seems. I hear this a lot!

Love ya girl friend!
