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:

  1. 1890 postal guides;

  2. stamps from the former Soviet Union

  3. 1930’s postal boxes

  4. military photos, personal correspondence

  5. an army helmet with bullet holes from WWII

  6. depression glass in mint condition

  7. apothecary bottles

  8. colorful book plates

  9. wood doors

  10. distressed lumber salvaged from a barn

  11. turn-of-the-century baby shoes

  12. 1913 phonograph records

  13. a 1960’s police detective files

  14. a hardcover 1930 phone book

  15. ad posters from defunct brands like Sealtest

  16. hand-made Americana

  17. 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!
