Meanwhile, I’ll try to tempt you. IF you are a lover of Mid-Century Modern furnishings or artwork, you won’t want to miss any of these sales. Not to say we don’t have antiques from other periods, we have those too!
We very excited about trying some new tactics this month. For the first time ever, we will be holding an estate tag sale in our gallery. We’ve had to move it away from the home due to the timeliness of the closing. We are giving you, the public, an opportunity to purchase any items two days prior to the auction. On the third and final day, we will be business as usual. Auction at 1:00 pm!
Also, we’ve picked up a wonderful estate of our client’s mother who was deep seated in the Pennsylvania Dutch Community. Very nice primitives in this one! There is so much good quality furniture getting ready to roll through the doors, I say, “STOP”, if you’re thinking about buying new! We have several rich leather pieces, and elegant furnishings on their way to us.
Long story short……stay tuned. the fun is about to begin!
Thanks to all who attended Sunday’s auction! Hopefully a good time was had by all! We enjoyed it and are looking very forward to the next one in two weeks. This one is going to have, among other things, a wonderful collection of Modern Lithographs: Picasso, Miro, Ben Shahn, Matisse and many more!
We will also have the furnishings for the mid-century modern lover!
Le Crueset will abound as will Fire-King Swirl Glassware, Hopi Indian Basket and a wonderful collection of Ephemera and Vintage Vinyl! mark your calendars now for this wonderful sale!
We are so excited about our next Estate Auction this coming Saturday., August 21 beginning at 10:00 am, preview at 8:30. The address is 102 Bounty Lane in Durham.
It is a pure estate, with treasures directly out of our client’s home, as well as that of close-knit family and church friends.
If “y’all” want to attend a traditional country-style auction, please plan to join us. There will be bar-b-que, biscuits and a bake sale by the Lowes Grove Baptist Church. We will be auctioning off Pecan, Coconut Pies and more as the day progresses. The setting is perfect, as is parking. An estate sale steeped in Southern Tradition! Bring a Chair, all of your friends and a truck, because the furniture is super! See you Saturday.

Also, remember we’re still collecting ghost stories or strange happenings that you may to share……Peace, Cindy
I am collecting ghost, unexplained stories about houses or possessions. Could be a story about something that you just can’t attribute to any rational reasoning. I have mine from past and present that I will be sharing as well. Wait until you hear the story about the Greensboro estate that we did a couple of years ago. It raised the hair on our arms! Or, there was the house where a gentleman was murdered that we couldn’t get photographs to come out in a particular area of the home and the ones that did had a huge shadow in them! And to this day, when the door opens in our gallery for no good reason, we simply say “Hi Ernie”. If any of you remember Ernie, you’ll know what I’m talking about. This had never happened until we began liquidating his estate. Come on and share. Let’s have some fun. Afterall, we auction folks deal with numerous OLD things!
