Estate Sale: Pick Up Bits Of Our History This Weekend
I recently got wind of an amazing estate sale that I wanted to bring to your attention. It looks like there are some pretty groovy antique and vintage treasures from 1890’s to the 1980s to be found, such as:
1890 postal guides;
stamps from the former Soviet Union
1930’s postal boxes
military photos, personal correspondence
an army helmet with bullet holes from WWII
depression glass in mint condition
colorful book plates
distressed lumber salvaged from a barn
turn-of-the-century baby shoes
1913 phonograph records
a 1960’s police detective files
a hardcover 1930 phone book
ad posters from defunct brands like Sealtest
appliances, housewares, cameras, typewriters, telephones, farm tools, furniture, lamps, wooden ironing boards, and more!
The sale manager, says this collection is a treasure trove for stylists seeking props for photo shoots and window displays. Items are priced to sell too, many under $5. It’s worth going to this estate sale just to see the venue too, a 1920’s smoked fish factory!
