Farm Estate Sale

Here are some pictures of the farm sale I was telling you about. I'm hoping it will be ready in mid-July. Please excuse the photos. They were taken late in the day, and the lighting wasn't the greatest. The house is kind of dark to begin with. Believe it or not, there is only one outlet in the living room, and it doesn't work. Guess I won't be able to vacuum.....I'm heartbroken ;-)

This is one of two pantries. I'm not totally finished sorting or marking, but you can kind of get the feel of the place, right?

 The wall cabinet is actually oak and has been painted white. It's really cute with original fifties shelf paper.

This old stepback cupboard is full of crocks and depression glass.
There are about thirty more local milk bottles in the basement, as well as blue Ball jars. 

I'll post more pictures as time allows. Tomorrow we'll be working in the outbuildings if it doesn't rain.


  1. Wow! This looks like it is going to be a wonderful sale! Have fun with blogging too! :)

  3. Thanks, Laura. Old estates such as this are getting harder and harder to find. The guys are finding incredible stuff in the outbuildings. The snow collapsed the roof on one building, yet, they managed to rescue two stained glass, cabinet doors that miraculously survived intact. Sweet!

  4. I'd love to know more about your sale so I can post the info on my other blog, Vintage Market Guide. Would you email details to me please? Thanks! :-) -amy

  5. Amy,
    I just sent you the particulars. Diane
