A Blast From The Past

I got the awesome opportunity to go take photos of the Southland Estate Sale during my lunch break today. Some photos had been posted on Estatesales.net, but those photos were taken a few days ago and didn’t cover many of the items inside the house. But even my photos don’t cover everything because the estate sale team was working on the kitchen today when I stopped by.

The home where the estate sale is being held is in a dreamy location in my opinion. Large stretches of farmland are on 3 of the 4 sides of the house, with a fenced in area for horses between the home and its neighbor on the fourth side. I call it dreamy because I live in a somewhat cramped Maumelle neighborhood, where I can expect to be annoyed by a neighbor  multiple times a week(whether it be their loud dog(s) barking all through the night or their calling the police because someone parked on the street in front of their house – I’m not kidding). So the awesome location, along with the amazing weather, really made it hard on me to go back to work!

My favorite view was looking out at the farmland behind the house where some cows and horses were hanging out under a tree:

These adorable Shetland ponies from next door came to the fence for attention:

While taking photos, I overheard some conversations about barbeque being sold while the estate sale is going on. If barbeque does end up being sold at the sale, I can’t think of a better place to be than a place that feels like it’s out in the country with awesome antiques, great food, and wonderful weather!!

This sale has more primitive cabinets than I’ve ever seen in one location.  I typically see one or two old cabinets at some sales, but this one has several!

I love the color of the cabinet below. If you look closely, you can see there’s one beside it that’s just like it, but bigger. Those chairs on top are super neat too.

Most of the other furniture is nice and rustic too. Here are some of my favorites:

That is a drawer in the table below. Love it!

One of the first things that caught my eye inside the house was this collection of Nell Walker watercolor paintings from around 1911. My camera flash and the sunlight coming in the living room windows made taking photos without a glare about impossible!

Here are a couple closeups:

This is my favorite room in the house — It is definitely a blast from the past! I love, love, love the small rustic cabinets! This room is filled with small primitive items that you don’t find every day:

What’s a primitive estate without a claw-foot bathtub?

One of my favorite pieces is this neat shelf. Those are jars hanging on the side for screws, etc:

I love the shop out back decorated with old signs:

Something that you’ll rarely ever see is a collection this large of children’s clothes and costumes from the 1950’s:

I could go on and on about how great this sale is, but I better stop so I don’t have the longest post ever. 🙂  If you’d like to see more photos, check out the Southland Estate Sale page I created.

The sale starts this Friday bright and early at 8:00 and runs through Sunday. I have a feeling I’ll be visiting this sale more than once and leaving with lots of unique antiques!!
