Even with being a half hour late, this was definitely worth the trip. Lots of art, small ceramics and silver. If you were looking for quality furniture, the house was loaded with Ethan Allen pieces.
I noticed that the owner seemed to like more of a midcentury look when it came to dinnerware. Also lots of nice Asian ceramics. We've been to other sales held by this estate sale company and they're really nice people. They price items reasonably and are also willing to haggle.
I would have loved a chance at that small red and white ceramic piece sitting on the cabinet in the pic above but it was gone. Too bad for me -- you snooze, you lose.
Nice rugs of various styles but all of good quality were available. Also a number of newer Tiffany lamps.
Much of the art consisted of museum shop pieces that were the 'brushstroke' type and nicely framed. Not my thing but great for someone wanting a copy of a masterpiece.
Of course, we didn't leave empty-handed. There were a LOT of DVDs. Perks of the jobs, maybe? I bought three along with a little Dansk vase that caught my eye. It's signed by the designer Kathleen Wills. Duane bought a very nice silk knitted sweater and a paper cutter.
We headed for coffee and a treat afterwards and discussed what we missed by being late. Heh, heh, heh.
