Tipped off by a friend late Friday evening I raced over to this sale first thing Saturday morning and stood in line for an hour in the rain.
Once inside, I scanned this room for hidden treasures.
Fortunately there wasn't a lot of competition as the weather was a definite deterrent.
Of course I talked my "partner in crime" into coming along.
Here she is buying her favorite thing...
Her next stop?
You guessed it.
There was also a fabulous book room.
We were told that a local family had generously donated the entire library from their father's estate.
Check out this box of magazines from the late 1800's!
Downstairs in the furniture/art room, I found these 3 amazing pieces.
I couldn't quite wrap my head around this incredible oil painting that looks to be from around the mid 1800's.
I'm going to take it to the auction house on Thursday to find out more about it.
Of course I'm hoping for an Antiques Roadshow moment!
Next up is this beautiful still life.
And last, but not least...
is this wonderful watercolor of what looks to be a young boy in military school.
He's a keeper!
I'm going to hang him in my son's "new" sophisticated bedroom/guest room which I'll show you soon!
