I had been looking forward to this Epic Estate Sale
for the whole month of August!
One of my favorite Estate Sale Companies,
Brown Button, was holding an Art and Antique
sale in downtown Kansas City.
I previewed the sale online
and they had so many beautiful paintings
that it literally hurt my eyes!
If you know me,
then you know that I absolutely
ADORE landscape paintings!
I just sit and stare at my favorites
whenever I go to museums,
I just get lost in them.
My BFF and I went to the sale on Saturday.
The weather was just gorgeous BTW.
We talked to the Brown Button guys
(my BFF and I love the 40's vests and caps that they wear)
and they told us the inside scoop...
Apparently, a very large Midwestern Bank chain
was doing some remodeling of their offices.
Instead of selling the paintings and furniture themselves,
they decided it would be better for them to donate everything to a charity group.
The charity group then hired
Brown Button to hold the sale.
I was afraid that the prices would edge me out
of most of the paintings.
They were all original oils
so I knew they had to be expensive.
But, what the heck, a girl can look can't she?
Well, you can see by my living room
that the prices were quite reasonable!
AND, they were discounting them by 35% that day.
The paintings are all about 30X34 inches large
and in beautiful ornate gold frames.
They were all so pretty
that it made it very hard to choose.
I walked around a few times to look at them all.
I finally decided on two that loved
and asked the guys to hold them for me.
Well, you know there is a story coming don't you?
The guys got the ladder
and got one down and I went over
to get the other one
and there was only an empty hook on the wall!
A lady was snatching up paintings left and right...
The helpful worker whispered
that she was only
going to pick two
out of the ones that she was holding.
So my BFF of course, set about to persuade her
to choose two that I didn't want!
Ahhh, a true friend!
I wanted to buy quite a few
so I called Mr. Beaux
and he came down to help me choose the rest.
It really was a once in a lifetime chance
to own some fantastic art.
I think I will bring this one up to Colorado.
This one is my favorite!
It is larger than the rest
so it will be a focal point on my new gallery wall
going up the stairs.
I have so many things that I have been working on that I want to share with you all...
I hope you will come back and visit to
see what I have been up to!
Until Next Time,
