Estate Sale Goods



We saw this massive chippy white cabinet at an estate sale on July Fourth in Wrens, Georgia. We arrived about thirty minutes after the start of the sale and it was already sold. I was sick about it.

 It has shelves inside and you can see the lovely patina. The price was good too. I apologize for the dark images but every day is a rainy day in Georgia.



This was a pretty bamboo chair.



The old wicker set is certainly charming. It has some damage but I think I could live with these pieces easily.



The chenille spread had many stains which OxyClean could have handled but I passed on this beauty too.

What did we buy? A sofa for our den. Nothing terribly exciting. Also in the worst room possible to photograph. I will post it later. When my house is clean. When the moon is full on an odd Thursday.



joy and peace

  3. Hi Olive! Oh, you saw some gorgeous things! I love the wicker set and the cabinet. But you didn't show us your sofa.
    Oh, I'll be praying for your little tiny one. God is bigger than anything and I claim a miracle for the little darling.
    Blessings,
    Shelia ;)

  6. What a beautiful wicker set! I love the cushions, too. Looking forward to seeing your sofa. It has been raining everywhere I think. Yesterday we finally had a break, and this morning looks sunny, but the forecast says that will change.

  7. If I had room for that cabinet, I would have snatched it up too - such great storage possibilities! The rain is wearing me out too - please, some sun soon would be wonderful :-)

  10. Oh gosh... so sorry you missed out on the cabinet. The chippy paint looked perfectly aged too. So, are you saying we will not get to see the sofa in the den? Silly girl.

  11. What great offerings. I would easily live with that wonderful vintage wicker. I wish I had a sun room large enough to use large pieces like the sofa and chair. Love their style!

  12. Oh I would have loved that cabinet also!!!

  13. It looks as if you could have easily sold the cabinet and the wicker set to any of us! That is, if you didn't lose your heart to them yourself. Love the fabric on the wicker set! I love the-one-that-got-away stories!

  16. i love the wicker furniture. so you did purchase or didn't??! either way i love it ... really gives you a beachy or can give you (your home) a totally different look as well. ( :

  17. Yeah, that's when my house will be clean too. lol

    sorry about the cabinet. I saw 'wardrobe' and sighed at the thought of you missing it. Looks like it would be a great addition.

  18. Too bad the chippy old cabinet had sold. I love the wicker set. I wouldn't have a place for it though.

    I'll look forward to the post when your house is clean during a full moon on an odd Thursday. haha

  19. That was a great piece...just tell yourself it was too heavy to move!
    I love the material on the wicker set.
    Maybe when the odd Thursday and full moon come my house will be clean too, probably not!

  20. I would have been sick over that cabinet too.

  21. Olive,
    that cabinet is fabulous! I would have been verrrry sad too!:( The wicker set also very nice, it would have been hard for me to pass up!
    Will be waiting to see the sofa, when the moon is full and the werewolves are howling!

  22. My daughter has essentially the same cabinet, chippy and all. It was left in her house when she bought it. Probably from the turn of another century. It's her pantry. Should I put your name on it? In my family that's what my kids do for what they want "when you die, ma." Cracks me up.

  23. I love the big old cabinet, too. And I passed some chenille up awhile back and now wish I hadn't. It's hard to buy everything I want though. No room! lol Hugs!

  24. Oh my...that is one AWESOME cabinet...so sorry that you didn't get it. I hit the jackpot Sat. on some old beadboard cabinet doors (like the cabinet doors) for a steal:) Get this...I only went to this upscale shop for ideas and left with four great doors for just pennies...you just never know.

    Blessings,

  25. Olive, I laughed so hard about when you will photograph the sofa. I know that feeling..I thought the old wicker looked abused. Sad. Take care.xoxo,Susie

  31. I found an old cabinet (not as nice as the one in your photo) at a garage sale. I bought it and we used it for years as a china cabinet. I gave it to my daughter for her art studio when I got our lovely new (old) hutch. Sometimes you can find treasures in somebody's garage!

  32. OMG...you always find the good stuff! even if you didn't get to bring it all home! I know you would have found the PERFECT spot for that cabinet!

  34. I'm over here sick for you! I'd have sat in front of it and cried. Romeo? Well he just coughed up a furball for you. He's all sympathy for your plight but thankful it didn't come home here because he's had enough furniture moving for the year ;)

    We'll be waiting for that odd Thursday with the full moon. Or was that a cresent moon?

    Purrs and hugs,

    Romeo and "her"

  35. I kept waiting for you to say the person who bought the white cabinet couldn't fit it in their car so they sold it to you!!! Maybe you will run across it again some day. It was perfect!

  36. The cabinet is so cool Olive! I love pieces like that. Too bad my house is now way too full for such an awesome piece.
    I loved seeing your last post. Such beautiful photos of your sunny rooms!
