RANDOM ESTATE SALE TOURS
UNFORTUNATELY all my pics from this sale were POOFED in my new digital camera. FUCK!!!!! well, the sale of a KOHLER(toilet barons of WI) in sept i think i emailed ryan see if he could do it. 4 day sale. sat + sun. YES! ooh. so. these i had stolen from the web site. the paisley above was already gone of course. well, we started early! it opened at 9. there was a small crowd waiting. check out tent OUTSIDE. OMG, what stuff old people w/ money have. while waiting we checked out the garage. where we went inside too. big old traditional looking house.but oh my, addition added onto the back. OH FUCK. i just remembered the patent model? thing in the basement in a glass case. well, i found a few things in the garage or outside. wood hangers. names called after about 10 min. went into the kitchen. LOTS of cookie cutters + TONALAS. ryan helped get them off a high shell to check them. they had a BIG duck/goose, extra big bird. near the front door exit/ was a HUGE pot w/ the mouth up.
i was a good girl. i only got a squirrel a $1 bird. there was a BIG dish pantry and another storage room to the right w/ decorations + more dishes. LOTS of glasses. stuff stuff mexican black on black di=aily dishes. then a little dinning room. then a formal one in the addition. SHIT. you should have seen the black forest TALL chest. a big sideboard. VERY FANCY. 2 big arm chairs by the window. that's where we found the ASIA magazines. GOOOOOGLE asia magazine. sadly they were $6 each. i went thru all of them. it came down to 2. they were SO PURE deco. i think we went in the basement 1st. OMG the books. the basement had some awesome old ones, but mostly paperbacks. + then that weird model). a room off to the west of the dinning room, i guess a library/lounge. piano" yeah. FULL OF STUFF. the political buttons on a couch. republican. $$$. too many books to even consider. tho, in another room off the informal lounge? i found childrens books. me + illustration. i got 3. saw a hoard of straight razors + other things. but at full price, i am glad i limited my grabs. went upstairs. oh fooey, i lost the pics of the old furniture up there. mid 1800's a little later. fun to look at.
after the sale, we drove into sheboygan to look for a pizza place i saw on a local PBS show. the chef own 3 all close, the $$$ fancy place not open. we went o the shop 1st. nearly ate there, but i said no, gotta do pizza next door. fancy italian wood brick oven.
after that we checked on the tree we discovered in forest home cemetery to see if it had changed colors. yes. it finally was changing.

ANTIQUE DRESSER JARS- hair rceiver/powder/ART NOUVEAU w/ silver plate lids- $12
As of right now, both these authentic old jars are in nice condition with only the most minor signs of use. The pressed glass has a pattern name – probably something like “fans & dimples” or “sprays & bull’s eyes.” I don’t know, and I don’t care. However, one thing you’ll never need to worry about is either jar coming down with rickets.
I want to call your attention to the lovely violet color most now call “sun purple.” You know what would be handy? It would be really nice if a scientist somewhere found a way to fiddle around with our genes in such a way that our skin would turn a nice violet color when exposed to ultraviolet rays instead of us getting sunburns, skin cancer and worse.
Unfortunately, we aren’t killing off the ozone layer fast enough to get the full benefit of the 5% of the sun’s rays that fall into the UV wavelengths. We are trying, but I doubt I will live to see it. However, man-oh-man, the next generation should cook up beautifully.
The lids are white metal with silver plating. I doubt the plating is 100% intact, but you never know. My advice: Don’t monkey around with them. Just enjoy.
They have no cracks, and the only way you might find a tiny chip is by running your tongue around all the edges, including the pattern, but don’t do that!
Well, cwap! Now I can’t get that old song out of my brain. It keeps playing over and over and over again, and it’s bothersome. Your grandkids may very well become victims of a flying purple people eater unless they’re able to get him a gig.
"I said Mr Purple People Eater, what's your line? He said eating purple people, and it sure is fine But that's not the reason that I came to land I wanna get a job in a rock 'n roll band"
Have you ever started talking gibberish, and even though you knew it, it was too late to quit? I’d better go find my meds.
They ARE both the same size. It’s my camera’s fault.
