I went to an estate sale the other weekend and it had some good things going for it. It wasn't advertised and it was run informally by the family. Some interesting, dusty old junk. I must admit that I would have passed by the poster shown below because reproduction posters are everywhere but a friend pointed to it and told me to check it out. Smart lady.
The age of the framed poster is hard to determine but I lucked out when I noticed that the hardware store where it came from had its phone number on it the back. The phone number is quite early. Two digits with a letter would date it to the 1940s at latest, I would think.
This is one of those nice little purchases that make picking worthwhile. This heavy little silver-plate platter came from the Fairmont Hotel. Made by Reed & Barton, it seems to be from the 1930s or 1940s and will be perfect for serving morning tea or afternoon cookies!

The big party is here! North Hills beach music Thursday nights began with The Embers a few weeks ago and continued with the Fantastic Shakers last Thursday. The Guccis (sans socks) are shined and ready to go! Even though I've written about it previously, each year, the party seems to get better and better. Still haven't discovered it? Find out more here....
