"Treasure Hunting"

One of my little "gifts" is that I have "junk ESP" and a photographic memory - must be the artist in me.  I have been having so much fun setting up this auction this week.  I know my limits - I now hand the boxes to a much younger person - who carries them up the stairs.  Tomorrow, he will running them down stairs....lucky him.

I found this really cute mesh purse - before I even opened it, I knew it was a Whiting Davis.  It is so cute and small.  I was so excited when I found the original packing and box in a totally different part of the house.  Putting them together now, makes this item complete and hopefully will bring a better price.  When you pack up an estate, it is so important to be aware of what you packed so if something like this happens, you can match it up.  "Willy nilly" packing won't make us the most money.  

It is fun to work with Al, he is older and a wealth of information!  As we are packing I can hear him say..."oh my goodness" or "wow, you will never guess what I found" - truthfully we have found some awesome treasures!  He gets so excited and then will proceed to tell us exactly what the items is, why it is valuable and how much he thinks it is worth - priceless!  I know I know stuff - but, I'm learning stuff as well!  I hope when I reach his age - I still find joy in doing this!  

The house will be up for auction as well - it has a lot of potential - with original charm!  



(beautiful fur coats - this one actually fits me!)



I'm off to go and work (play) - have a great day!  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

My trouble is that I would take it all home rather than sell it! Cute, cute house! Have fun working:)
