Oh My, That sounds great! and Yes, do check out the prints at your charity shops, they are often overlooked! Do you know who the artist was? Just curious if it was Currier and Ives, or Audubon? I've found both in the Salvation army, several years ago! :)

Thanks for the encouragement to! We have yet to sell a stick of furniture, and really need to move at least some of it! Geez Louise! I priced it very inexpensively too! It has been so tough to move lately - it's really hurting the biz! Hopeful, if nothing else, we can make up some with the fab linens and clothing - they just don't sell any where near the prices for larger pieces - drives me nuts!

All the young one's SAY they want the MCM, but it would seem none of them purchase anything - UGH!

Comment by Donna Cook on Tuesday

The economy is hurting everyone.  It's almost a miracle to sell anything.  I posted a pink bowl awhile back - Shirley just ID it for me it's a console bowl by Fenton -  Ming pattern  - $4 find looks like a $50 find.  I found a few nice pieces of jewelry.  I found a $3 Madame Alexander doll that sold for $110 - Bumblebee doll made for Lenox Lt Ed.    Today I talked to a man that told me he found a 1800's print at my GW for $4 a few months ago and he sold it for $22,000.  Now that's what I need.   It's a pickers dream.  Good luck wrapping up the Estate sale.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Tuesday

Thank you very much Donna! Except most of it is already sold, as of today - LOL

As did the antique Razors, and TONS of beautiful linen and clothing. There are some really nice things here, but this is also an area heavy in "older Italian and Chaldean" folks, who dislike intensely paying the price asked - LOL

They will come back each day to "haggle some more" with us! Oh Well, it's the way of the world today, I guess!

Any good finds for you lately?

Comment by Donna Cook on Tuesday
Vicki - the Estate sale looks interesting. I'd love to look through the jewelry. You did a great job setting it up.
Comment by vicki hufstetler on Tuesday

I think those would be perfect! Thank you Chris and Betty! :)

Comment by Chris Pollock on Tuesday

Thanks Donna, this gives me (or Judy) a chance to group colours together on the shelves leaving room for clear in the big cabinets. Vicki, these use 3 AAA batteries each take a look at the link I posted to Betty, this may be what you're looking for.

Gosh, in all my hurry up this week, I forgot to post our current sale. Not much glass wise - but some cool MCM things, if you like them! Have a look!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on Tuesday

That looks fantastic Chris! Super nice with the lights! I need some small LED's for my Jewelry cases - anyone have a suggestion on the best ones?

Betty - you say they run out fast? Are they regular A batteries or watch batteries? - I hate watch batteries - LOL

I'd really prefer the regular if possible, and they can't be bigger than about 4-5" in both height and width??

Comment by Donna Cook on Monday

Looks great Chris, I like the blue glass group best.  The lights are a nice touch.
