Estate Sale Finds

I found so many cool estate sale items last week.
This Acme Suitcase in blue is in great condition and it still has traveling tags attached. How cool is that?

Can you read the writing on this vintage silverplate champagne bucket? It’s inscribed “Girl of the Year” 1979. It’s already sitting in my front room on my antique dresser, I just don’t think I can part with it, it’s so cool.

 All of these finds will make their way into my dealer space at The Brick Basement for Fall, except girl of the year, she’s already found a home.

Be Blessed!

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Side Table

This is one of my “fall” finds that I lucked upon at an estate sale on Monday. This is her “before”
 And this is her “after” one coat of Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Duck Egg. I did a light sanding before hand which I shouldn’t have because I sanded the top more heavily than the rest and now the colors that show through are different because of the color beneath the new coat of paint.

Close up of drawer. I kept the original hardware. You should have seen me after I finished sanding this morning, I was covered in blue dust!
If you’re interested in purchasing this little lady she will be available at The Brick Basement next week. 
Be Blessed!

The Brick Basement’s Christmas Open House

Hello Ladies, 
I was quietly reminded (by my sub-conscious), in the middle of the night no-less, that The Brick Basement’s Christmas Open House is coming ! 
I know it’s still summer and filled with beach, pool and lazy sunny days, it’s hard to think about Christmas but here I am thinkin’ about it.
So I’m starting to prepare lovely things for you to buy for family, friends and yes, even yourself…
Save the Date!
1st Saturday in November
 Christmas Open House
The Brick Basement
113 N. Harbor Blvd
Fullerton, California
