Faves from the Grace Schroeder Estate Sale

Every estate sale has its own flavor. There are typically one or two genres of collectibles along with the standard handfuls of vintage clothing and furniture. But this one really and truly had it all!

Our last estate sale, the estate of Grace Schroeder had the basics in vintage, but also had some amazing artwork, antique housing fixtures, and some spectacular personal items from the original owner.

Thought I’d share a few of my favorites from this sale, just for fun.

These Seatmore chairs, built to literally, “seat more” people, were simply stunning. I would love to be able to see them in their new home.

Nowadays, people watch television, play sports or surf the internet in their spare time. Seeing these handcrafted wires trees reminded me of a time when people used their creativity simply to unwind.

Grace Schroeder painted the Austin skyline several times, but I just loved this hand painted purse.

    You all are on my “bucket list”! I haven’t been able to make a sale yet, because of distance and other commitments, but I have enjoyed looking at all your goodies. Maybe 2013 will be the year!
