Estate sale: Pittsfield, Mass.

I have some work-work to do first thing Saturday morning, but then I’m heading to this estate sale. And there’s another one nearby. There is nothing more exciting to me than a Massive Accumulation to sort through. I can outlast Anyone, when it comes to rolling up my sleeves, diving in, and getting dirty. About two weeks ago, I had a dream that I was at an estate sale. I got to talking with another shopper who was kind of nice, so I was “sharing” the finds with her. But then while I was digging, she just stood there. So I didn’t want to share anymore. In contrast, one of the reasons that I got along so jolly well with Denise the first time that we met is that she proved that she had thrifting endurance to match mine.  To view the slide show (which comes from the clean-out dealers’s email I received the other day, promoting this estate sale), click on the first thumbnail, use the arrow below the image to move forward:

    I bought a sofa almost EXACTLY like that one last weekend! Love the aqua! Mine is a Steelcase, which that one might be too. The cushions in Steelcase sofas have springs, so they don’t get saggy over the years. Unfortunately that makes them not as comfortable, but hey…that’s the price you pay for total retro cool sometimes 🙂

    Have fun finding lots of treasure!

    I want to cry. I need that sofa and chair so bad.Would they fit in a flat rate USPS box? Also, for our altered art side–those watches and that wonderful cabinet.

      Linda, more tears for you: I just came back from the sale and these were REALLY NICE in person. Harmony House brand (Sears)…

    Laurs and I both love a good estate sale, although sometimes they creep me out. I don’t go into the bedrooms or bathrooms when they’re stilll full of the deceden’t’s belongings (uh, merchandise).
    We have seriously considered a codicile in our last testament requiring a one-day estate sale, held from One o’clock to Four, in hopes of making many happy young strangers!

      Dave, I think that is the neatest idea! What a sweet way to make sure that your treasures are truly appreciated. And I’m sure you would make many young strangers very happy!

    No! I want the sofa/chair set! That’s exactly what I’m looking for too. We had a grey version when I was growing up. – I went to an estate sale this weekend also- but only picked up jelly jars for making jam.
    Nothing like a great estate sale 🙂

    Note to self: need to check out estate sales!

    I really like the sofa and chair, and they would work in our space, too. I also like the dresser in slide #11.
