Most items will be 1/2 off Sunday
The offerings at this old Jefferson estate sale can best be described as eclectic. Items remaining, after the family visit, range from vintage furniture to 1935 Sugar Bowl ticket stubs. Remaining in this home, are item from three generations of a family that foresaw the wisdom in saving items that one day would have value.
In addition to the items remaining, in this 1920's old Jefferson home is a case of mostly gold and silver jewelry that a family member has decided to part with. The gold jewelry being offered is mostly priced at scrap gold value with no premium added for the aesthetic value.
It time permits, I will post more images.
Just a reminder, we will be at available until at least 5:00PM on both of those days.
Discovered Tuesday afternoon in an upstairs closet were 35 unframed watercolors of recently deceased New Orleans artist Olga Bannister.
Olga was a member of the Metairie Art Guild and served in many administrative positions including President. She was also a member of the New Orleans Art Association and the St. Charles Art Guild. She won many awards for her art, much of which was purchased by corporate and private collections around the world.
Some of Tuesday's discoveries are quite well done and all will be modestly priced from $5.00 to $12.00 each. We will also have inexpensive frames in which to frame them. If you are seeking well done original art to decorate your home, this might be a good sale to attend. The house is full of it.
