Art Rousseau — Briarwood; 5116 & 5120 W Hanover Ave; Dallas 75209; Thursday~Saturday — 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.
There is a formula: Take two side-by-side houses and two double garages; mix in four lots; start adding really great STUFF and stir. Next, bring in Art Rousseau and his crew to organize, empty boxes, get things in saleable order. Then invite the public to one of the most interesting sales we have seen in quite some time. It’s always interesting for Art to start a sale when it is someone he has known for a long time. His up-coming sale is one of those in that he has been a friend, customer, supplier and co-heart of his client for years and years. This sale even has Art waking up early in the mornings and not being able to go back to sleep worrying about getting everything ready, displayed, priced and logistically available to his customers. The owner has down-sized to a retirement center and must have taken some things but Fred and I could not see enough vacant space in the house to determine what was missing – change that, we did not see space in the TWO houses, garage, side lock-up, shed or storage building to see or say that anything was missing.

Mark has a wonderful sale in the gorgeous and prestigious Craig Ranch Community in McKinney, Texas. Mac Town has some awesome communities but this one is their best. It’s a magnificent home overlooking the golf course with a swimming pool (great patio items) – incredible home both inside and out. Mark considers this a kind of a “pop-up” sale since he’s squeezing it in between two other sales. Wonderful treasures include …
Harriett Martin Estate Sales. 3108 Canyon Creek Dr; Richardson 75080; Thursday/Friday … 9:00 am until 4:00 pm; Saturday … 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
A house full of furnishings that will please everyone. Traditional furniture to casual/comfy throughout the house.

Some of the more unique items include a Yuan Qun Violin, an antique 4-poster bed that’s truly good looking, and my personal favorite – the Desert Rose china by Franciscan.

Jeff Hamlin Estate Sales — Highland Park; TBA; Dallas 75205; Friday~Saturday — 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.
My favorite type of Jeff Hamlin sale … one filled with traditional art work (love the country scene of marshes on a fall day) … a wonderful array of antique furniture (a Regency style sideboard and a 1/4 sawn oak American library table) … tables covered in silver serving pieces … several outstanding antique tea sets … crystal chandeliers … Waterford and Baccarat stems … fine china – everything we’ve come to expect in a Highland Park home. Of course, there are always some unique surprises; one being the antique French dressing table/writing table. It’s not like any we’ve seen and Fred and I are both captivated by it. More in keeping with our personal style, I have eyes for the MCM wall mounted cabinet. It would be center stage in my office if the walls were not already covered in original art work. The last of Jeff’s 3 moving sales and it’s exceptional. Enjoy shopping the following treasures …

It may be summer time, but that doesn’t mean a vacation for the ladies at the Chic Cherie. Marilyn Harris has been busy traveling to California and Canada in pursuit of vintage clothing, jewelry, and handbags. What she’s found is FABULOUS! Let’s start with the vintage prom dress – a strapless full length white dress with all the frills. The original owner loved it so much she couldn’t part with it until Marilyn convinced her someone else would love it just as much. The same lady turned over her “Going Away Outfit” to Marilyn – a taupe colored 2 piece suit. A great start to summer’s buying trip.
