Oh My.... I Have Questions!

I get an email from a local estate sale company every week.  Always lots of interesting and fabulous things to see, but I rarely go.  I'm not as fast as I once was and believe me...  it's dog eat dog at estate sales and I'm afraid I'll be mowed over....

I'm figuring one of you ever so smart chickies will know exactly what this cabinet was intended for?  I swear it looks like a bird cage, but somehow I don't think that's what it is.  It's a wonderful old piece though, isn't it?

I would think these were a pair of Levis' with a stain...  but there are several pictures of them.  Am I way out of touch with what's hip or is this an unsightly mark on that pocket?  Fill me in girlies....  Do I need some of these?

And, finally......I think that might be a desk in the right corner?  I have no idea, but it has wonderful little cubbies and I LOVE the piece.  I don't suppose it would be there on the last day when I could bypass the crowds of wild shoppers?

Just in case you live in the Seattle area, this is a Girlfriends' Estate sale and you can get all the scoop here:

Or, you could sign up for their newsletter so you could see all the loveliness too!

Have a great day!

Huggies and Lovies,



  1. The first thing that came to mind to me is a bird cage. Wealthy people used to keep cannary birds in their homes. If it is, its worth a lot of money.
    The pocket stains are new to me and the small corner piece could be a desk or a sewing box. I am leaning toward a sewing, tatting, crochet type of box.

  2. I have no idea. It looks like the top of a two piece cabinet..I agree the other looks like a little desk of some sort...Looks like a great sale.. I hope there are some goodies left on the last day. Happy Shopping and blessings!

  3. I was thinking that desk might be a painter's box/desk. Supplies kept inside? It reminds me of something I've seen before.


  4. Oh it sounds like fun! Wish I could go!

  5. I wonder if the large cabinet is a gun collector's cabinet?
    Have a good rest of week.

  6. Spence, is that cabinet a gun cabinet? It looks like something like that to me due to the size.

    And I'm with Claudia, I think that is some sort of art box for paints. It's adorable. I think that might be worth fighting off some other buyers. I love it!

    The pants are a giant ????????? I'm just not hip enough to figure that one out. ;-)

    Oh, Spencer, all joking aside, we have been through a hard ordeal. I am going to post about it tomorrow. I wrote the post, but I'm too tired to see if it makes any sense. So will check it tomorrow and post. I'm on Fred's computer now. It's late, and I need to go to bed.

    Love you, my sweet friend...



  7. I have no idea what that big cabinet is for, but the pants the desk (and the cabinet too) look stunning nonetheless!!! LOVE that desk most of all, So beautiful!


  8. The mark on the jeans was made by either a Copenhagen or Skoal can (with both being finely-ground chewing tobacco). There are also several other brands that come in a similar container.


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
