Sale Info

Thursday, August 5, 2010

The truck is coming to my house at noon today and we'll be loading up lots and lots of furniture and home stuff to sell this Saturday, August 7 from 7:00 am - 1:30 pm at the Arlington, VA Flea Market located at North 15th Street and Quincy (here's the map).

Cash only.

I will be on the 'E Level' which is open-air. Please come and say hi and introduce yourself. I'll be the girl with paint-stained hands and a baby on her hip.

Here's a sampling of what will be coming. I've included some of my reserve prices here. All prices shown here and on the tickets at the sale will be firm until 11:00 am.

**Please note that I won't be at my computer much until the sale, so I won't be able to accept 'dibs' or put holds on pieces. If there is something you see here or know of in my home that you want to make a generous offer on, email me and if I'm tempted, I'll consider working something out.

I tried to keep prices reasonable and also tried to bring a range of furniture that's either ready to be used at a fair price, or less expensive things that need some TLC.

For example, this mid-century dining hutch was something I painted, so it costs $250

But this vintage hutch is ready for you to customize yourself and costs $60. There is cool paper in a gold cane pattern lining the shelves already.

Likewise, due to cost of materials and labor, my Chiang Mai settee has a reserve price of $350.

But this vintage tufted sofa is only $50. I love the ivory flame stitch upholstery. This piece is screaming for gorgeous pillows!

All mirrors $30-$100

China $1-$3 per piece

Pair antique twin bed frames (head and foot boards) $250/pair

Drexel twin canopy bed, $100 ($5 side tables seen to the left)

Antique daybed (rails not shown), $200

Lamps $5-$40 ea (these are the less exciting ones, relegated to the basement)

Artwork: I have boxes and boxes of art to sell, most for $5-$30 ea. This series of eight prints of scenes of NYC is $100.

Pair vintage bombay chests painted BM Marlboro Blue. $80/pair

Side tables GALORE!! Priced between $5 and $60 each.

Benches, some needing a lot of love (for $5), others already upholstered in designer fabric, like Ralph Lauren's leopard. This vintage pair of painted steel benches is $200.

Lulu DK footstool $45

Trunks, suitcases etc $3-$50

Credenza $50

Blue gray wall mirror, $40

China Hutch, $250

Bamboo trellis vanity bench, $35

Midcentury tufted floral chair. Upholstery is in perfect condition and the fabric is a gorgeous yellow floral - almost a suzani print. Love. $6o

I featured some of the pretty things, but like I said, there will be many diamonds in the rough, like this $8 pedestal table and the $5 mirror to the right.

And then, of course, at 11:00 am all offers will be considered. I don't want to haul anything home.

Other things of note:

Dining room hutch, $150
Dining curtains, set of four panels, $100
Chiang Mai headboards from girls room, $300 for the pair (the fabric alone is worth twice that)
Black and white striped living room curtains, set of two panels, $150
Brand spankin new, still in the package seagrass rug with black binding from Ballard, 8x10, $135
Black Campaign chest (the mate to Joanna's), $50
Red-orange CB2 Office chair, $35
XXlarge sunburst mirror from my DR, $75
