Help Me Ronda. 6722 Lakehurst Ave; Dallas, TX 75230 ; Friday/Saturday … 10:00 am until 4:00 pm; Sunday … Noon until 4:00 pm.
Most estate sales are very predictable – furniture, collectibles, and miscellaneous, BUT not all. Some break the mold and then some are “The Gold Standard” of uniqueness. This week HELP ME RONDA is that sale. The house is filled with “theme” rooms – golf, motion pictures, a room filled with exotics, even a racing room. Fred and I saw so many unique treasures throughout the house … an amazing chess set, a custom built Longhorn grill, taxidermy that covers sea turtles to a hammerhead shark and even a mounted king size lobster. The art covers a myriad of tastes. And you’ll even find two Tesla driving suits. Expect all the standard quality furniture, but don’t think that’s the end of the sale. It’s way beyond the norm and it’s just like Ronda to be the one doing it. Come ready to shop the …

I love the elegance of the furniture … the sophistication of the mirrors … the uniqueness of so many treasures (a vintage piece – carved elephant stand and the antique painted English hall chair) … chandeliers and figural lighting … everywhere you turn a cornucopia of style and grace. Fred picked out the banded mahogany banquet table with wonderful chairs as his favorite; I delved into the many sets (and partials) of china and crystal and could see myself indulging in so many pretty things. If this is any indication of what to expect from Jeff, Bob, Malda, Susie (and the crew), 2019 is going to be a banner year!
