YARD SALE SATURDAY

As I mentioned, I am getting together with some of my neighbours to have a great multi-family yard sale on Saturday, September 22, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

My friends Terry and Rick are great collectors, and we’ve gone to some auctions together. They’re doing a bit of a clear out and have some really wonderful things for sale. Here’s how they so eloquently phrased it:

Clearing out 25+ years of collecting. Kitchenware, dishes (including a great set of "India Tree", Russel Wright etc.), glassware, furniture (including chairs, a Mitchell-Gold Sofa, & more), lamps, artwork, 100s of cookbooks, art books, a huge collection of religious/kitsch items, and many other items you may not need, but must have! Several other houses on the street will be participating also! (it's also a great reason for early morning cocktails!)

I have my eye on this Indian Tree china. It’s a great classic pattern, isn’t it?image

Both they and I have Russel Wright pottery, although they have much more than I do… since I only have one piece.image

I am selling some of my fun glassware, and funnily enough, I saw these exact glasses on OKL today!imageHowever, I can ASSURE you that mine are much less expensive and I think I have six of them!

I am selling some of my silverplate serving pieces, just in time for the holiday entertaining season. image

And of course, I am selling off a significant amount of my fabric collection. I am just not finding the time for much sewing these days. I have some great Schumacher prints in linen, like this favourite, Shantung Silhouette. imageWake up your inner Junque Whisperer© and come on over to shop. I hope to see you bright and early! The address is 1012 Roland Heights Avenue (between Falls Road and Evans Chapel) in the Ham/Rol neighbourhood – that’s just to the north of Hampden and just to the south of Roland Park. Hon.image

Images are indicative of what’s on offer, not the exact items. I couldn’t be bothered to take pix of everything!

  3. Wish I was there. I can't get enough of silver-plate serving pieces. You can keep the Russel Wright. My mom had a lot in the 50"s and I thought it was ugly. Grey, chartreuse and maroon. I just can't understand the passion for "French" pieces these days. I prefer anything British. We spent our honeymoon in England, driving around buying antiques and shipping them back to NY. I collect porcupine boxes and tortoise things. And of course, YZ nut birds. How is Connor? Ann

    1. Not a big fan of Russel Wright, either. I love my silver/silverplate!

    1. I didn't take any with me. Too much other stuff to schlepp. The guys had 100+ cookbooks though!

  7. Now, that's just plain mean to taunt your non-local readers like that! I would have been there, even without the early morning cocktails, if I wasn't a good 600 miles or so away. Especially wish I could have dug through your fabric odds and ends. Next time, do an ONLINE yardsale, BYOB, right here on your blog!

    BTW, I love your new blog header for fall.
