Love the harp! I've bought them before...so pretty...and the dome is very cool. I went to the SF paper show and bought postcards...sifted through 100's...not fun, but interesting. I give them to my customers w/ purchases so it's kind of fun. Nap time!

What great finds. The harp is wonderful and all your other treasures will be put to good use I am sure. Love the cloche too. Hugs, Marty

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

Just as I was scrolling through and thinking 'Well isn't this fun to just look and not buy...from afar'...when I saw the things you chose and almost fell out of my chair. No more armchair shopping for me. Lucky, lucky you. I love your treasures.

Terri, My neighbor had a harpsicord just like that one when I was a little girl and she use to play it and we would sing along. Love that. I really love the dome and the shoe bows, pretty cool. No treasures here still working on my project and it is coming right along but not with out blood ,sweat and tears, Kathysue

I love your clothespegs - but don't tell me you passed on those horns? They looked as though they were fitted onto some kind of cap too...

I toured the Marin AIA House Tour - fabulous!

What a great house and some great finds!

Cashon&Co said...

I went to three estate sales yesterday as well! I had luck at the first one only. I am in LOVE with that first purchase of yours. Is that a harpsichord? It's stunning! And the parasol too! That view from the house is so picturesque. You are lucky to live where you do!

SPLENDEROSA said...

I was going to buy those same exact things, Therese. Really, how could you? LOL

sharon said...

Oh what fun. I totally approve of all your buys. Here in France we don't have this sort of sale in the house, I wonder what the atmosphere is like?

Beach House Living said...

Is that a Yacht Race bowl?
So when will these be available in your shop?

Theresa Cheek said...

Well, there would have been a "scene" as I would have fought you for the parasol!!! Love the wooden clothespins too! Great finds.

mbkatc230 said...

I'm afraid that I would have never gotten past the books! You found some really great treasures, love the parasol! What a fun day. Kathy

The Zhush said...

Loving that silver bowl that you scooped...have no idea what the first image was, clearly an instrument, just not sure what?

lisa golightly said...

You did good my friend ! I can't decide what I like the best ...is that called a harpsichord or a mandolin ? Love the parasol too !!!

shari @ little blue deer said...

You kill me with your finds, Therese! Just amazing! Love that typewriter the most!

my favorite and my best said...

so so awesome. what a house. as we get older do we just become slightly hoard-y?
great scores. esp. those hangars.

Cathy said...

Cathy

Look like a fun Saturday! So what plans do you have for the glass dome? I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

Wow, the harp! I'm sure if that was a sale that my son and I would have been at, my son would have jumped at that! How cool! What a sale wish I could have been there!

I'm doing my 1st ever giveaway, please come and check it out!

Hamptontoes said...

Love the parasol you found! Also, the bathroom is great, however I'd splash Benjamin Moore's Bunny Gray above the tile for a very chic, present day look. I can't wait to hit some estate sales in the Hamptons this summer! I'll keep you posted on my future treasures. Have a great week.

Candace Rose said...

Gorgeous!!!! You never know what treasures you'll find! I'm near Sac, I wish we had estate sales like that here!!!
