My Favorite Things – Estate Sale in Bel Air

Full of special pieces that create an air of whimsey, this is one of those estate sales that just doesn’t come around all that often. Our clients were discerning collectors who loved the theatre (so many playbills!), raised their family in Los Angeles and enjoyed a bit of Hollywood adventure – they raised a lion cub for Tippi Hedren’s Shambala Preserve. I’m so excited to be able to bring this estate sale with truly one-of-a-kind pieces to the Los Angeles estate sale people!

It’s an East Side Estate Sale Weekend. YAY!!

It’s been far to long since we had a proper Los Angeles estate sale and thanks to a long time client with exceptional taste we’ll be hitting up the east side (Valley Village/North Hollywood) this coming Friday, Saturday, Sunday. And we’re so excited about all the goods packed inside this entertainer’s bungalow. 

There’s a mix of vintage and contemporary items and the vibe is eclectic modern with some fantastic Mid-Century Modern pieces; I’m having trouble deciding which is my favorite with a strong teeter toward the John Keal for Brown Saltman credenza (pictured). The other’s being a Hans Wegner Secretaire and Paul Frankl for Brown Saltman dresser and side table set. The artwork is a great mix of high and low, and there’s some nice studio pottery, ahem, I only have eyes for the gorgeous Raymor table lamp (pictured). 

You’ll also find stuff you need!! Think brand spanking new kitchen blenders (Ninja/Vitamix), funky blue Kitchenaid mixer, glassware, serve ware, and jewelry of course… Crate & Barrel sofa!?

Check out the North Hollywood Estate Sale listing page for more details. Photos and information to be updated by Thursday. 


A Vintage Collector’s Trove

This weekend we’re in Venice, California for an estate sale that promises to bring vintage collector’s to their knees. This little home close to Lincoln Ave and Venice Blvd is filled to the max, over-flowing to the outdoors. And the clothing finds ranging all the way back to the Victorian period are beautiful, unique treasures; hats, shoes, dresses, children’s clothing, racks and tables full! It was the number one hoard of this house! 

Our client’s mother was a seamstress with a love for vintage clothing (before it was cool!) that developed into a fashion show she called “Fashion through the Years” and was narrated by her while family members and local gal’s worked the cat walk in pieces from her vintage clothing collection. It was a totally local show through her PTA, Chamber of Commerce, and Woman’s clubs and became an annual fixture at the Venice Woman’s Club and Marina del Rey Chamber of Commerce. Seems the gal had style!

July 4th Weekend in Rancho PV

Rancho PV estate sale starts Saturday and ends Monday. 

We’re not crazy enough to host an estate sale ON the 4th of July but it seems we are just crazy enough to host one over the weekend, and to extend it into Monday. I never really liked the idea of hosting an estate sale during a holiday weekend because I assume we won’t see as many of your friendly faces as we’re used to! Ya’ll proved that to be wrong when we hosted an amazing four day estate sale over Memorial Weekend in Palos Verdes Estates. I’m still thinking about all of the pretty things we sold over there! 

This Saturday – Monday we’ll be in Rancho Palos Verdes celebrating our independence to choose to laboriously work over a holiday weekend, and we really hope to see a whole lot of you! This sale has turned out to be an estate sale we love being able to present; one with lust-worthy items in excellent vintage condition. In my opinion the note-worthy vintage items are naturally the hand-woven Persian rugs because they are things beauty and skill (and because I’m obsessed with them), but just as beautiful and skillful, though not my hoard of choice are the Victorian period quilts with provenance. The chairs and benches in this estate sale had me at first sight too!

Estate of southern California artist, Pat Cox

I’m getting so excited about the estate sale happening this weekend! We’re in PV Estates once again and this time we’re surrounded by art chosen and created by Pat Cox, a watercolor and assemblage artist who lived in southern California most of her life. Many of the pieces are created by other local artist who I imagine Mrs. Cox was friends with.

You can read about Pat Cox, at the Pasadena Society of Artist website

Mrs. Cox’s mother was one of the founding members of the Pasadena Playhouse and her husband, Dale Cox, served in WWII. You’ll find some of his vintage Navy uniforms, medals, a selection of model airplanes. 

Beside all the art filling this home there is also a great selection of art books, art supplies, some stunning pieces of pottery, and there are a couple of furniture pieces that I’m just lusting over.
