Sara’s Treasure Hunt in Texas, Part 1 – Pink Maytag Washer, 50’s Dinettes and Petticoats!
Sara of the fabulously refinished Heywood Wakefield table recently sent me a ton of pictures on her “treasure hunt” from Texas. She went to a giant flea market/antique show (if I got that wrong, Sara, let me know!) with her mom a few months ago, and sent back a great report filled with all kinds of pictures. There is so much, that I think I am going to have to do more than one post about it!
But first things first! Here are the pictures of some of the amazing things Sara saw, but didn’t buy, with her descriptions:
I thought this dinette set was interesting, esp. because of how the legs are done on the table. Usually, it seems, the legs are just straight down at the 4 corners of the table, these legs were interesting, in that they curved down from the middle! The set was in very good condition and appeared to be all original. The price was $325.
I thought this cabinet was REALLY super cool, esp. with all the diamond shapes. The seller had it listed, on the tag, as an ‘English Curio’. I have no idea if that is really what it is. It does look 50’s to me because of the diamond shapes. Anyway, you can see it was clearance priced at $60! If I would have had more room I probably would have tried to fit it in!
Here are some general pics of different areas at the sale. Petticoats seem to be HUGE this year, I saw them everywhere!
Here is the coolest PINK 50’s Maytag washer. I Loved it! The washer was actually sold by the time I saw it, which was kind of surprising, because I got to the sales very early. The price was $350.
Wow, Sara! Thanks for all the great pics. Stay tuned for MORE great pictures from Sara’s adventure, she sent many posts worth of great pictures! And if you have some great pics you think would make a great post, email me
and let me know!
Thanks again, Sara!
