ESTATE SALE TOUR
my haul this week. did 2 at the nursing home apartments. 1st 1, i made a big mistake. i should have gotten the cool 80's winter coat and EBAYED it! the 80-'s is BACK! and it was a very nice coat. instead i got a plastc strainer. the 2nd was far more interesting, did the itchen 1st. KNIVES KNIVES KNIVES neatly kept SHARPENERS. i had to get 1 knife. sharp + nice. 1 sharper like the blue one, but used to death. also grabbed a pink polka dot towel. nothing else til looked in the living/finning area. mid century sideboards not danish enough. OOH, VERY NICE mid century lamps. but too big + blue. OH, old scale, wait, hat was in the kitchen too. same shape as my 1899 scale. probably 1905-1910. OOH, copper. there were a few books. OOH, mein kamf. german. explains the knives. was almost ready to write my check when i spotted the coin tray. also got an interesting carved wood spoon. i love that sharpener.
