Estates sales are great. Not only can you find great deals on vintage pieces, you can also be inspired by interiors and architectural details from the past. Every now and then you stumble upon a sale that is a time capsule and you're not sure from what period. That happened this weekend and I just had to share.
Hopefully you have all seen the book "Awkward Family Photos". Well, I want to do a book called Awkward Estate Sale Photos. I'm going to try and dig up some photos of my late grandmother's house. Let's just say she had some "interesting" things and thank goodness I did not get her taste in design (God rest her soul :).
What is the craziest thing you've ever seen at a sale?
(artificial flowers, paneling, multi-colored shag carpet, Victorian settee, gilded frames....oh my)
(Thick red shag, flocked wallpaper and a fountain in the bonus room?? hmmm.....)
(an entire back staircase devoted to cat pictures)
(I am pretty sure my grandmother had this lamp)
(anyone need a hair clip?)
