We need to liquidate everything this weekend so our prices will be very fair.

I will let the photos speak for themselves, as any description can’t accurately describe the content of this old Silverlake Bungalow. It’s rather like King Tut’s tomb of the golden age of Hollywood, but you need to be ready to “dig” for your treasures! Think of it rather more Archeology that Picking! Wear closed flat shoes and long pants. There’s a lot of stuff and jumbled items to pick threw and a basement loaded with memorabilia.

Featured items include: Lots of vintage magazines, (film and stage related) photos, artwork, slides, film reels, books, memorabilia and ephemera, maps and brochures, all going back to the late 20’s to the early 80’s. A collection of vintage Gay adult material (XXX photos and mags) mixed into the piles of materials in this house. Vintage books, oil paintings, cameras and darkroom equipment, dishes and the usual accumulation over the years. A antique Empire sofa (new upholstery) and overstuffed Armchair with footstool to match in Canary yellow velvet. Hand made vintage Persian / oriental rugs. An Unusual 1940’s Armchair and footstool in this extraordinary vintage “ Wine colored Cherub” upholstery. An antique Empire Dresser with Crotch Mahogany Veneer. Several Antique Wardrobes, upright piano, beds, desks, chairs and miscellaneous antique furnishings of all sorts. An antique trunk full of vintage 40’s threw 70’s sewing patterns, lots of antique trunks and vintage textiles plus many leather scraps. Vintage clothing! Lots of 70 -80’s Polyester and odd ball men’s clothing, etc. This house has too much to itemize. Look at the photos and then come on by.

Antique Spotlight: Collecting Vintage & Retro Patterns

Original Article: Dusty Old Thing

There’s a romance in looking back at the kinds of clothes we wore “back in the day” and a fascination with certain styles from long ago. With so many period TV shows and movies we see some of the wonderful clothes worn “upstairs” or “down”, Edwardian, flapper, frugal during War, extravagant later, bold, modest, strange and classic.

This is Nancy with Dusty Old Thing and I have two favorite periods: The “New Look” following WWII and the ‘60s classic lines. Like many of us, I took Home Economics in school. Sewing and Cooking and Basic Homemaking were required in Junior High for girls. The boys got a shorter course. In high school I took more Sewing along with all the college prep classes. Those were the days when designer patterns were replicated by Vogue and when quality fabric filled department stores.

5 Tips for Buying Antique Furniture

Antique furniture is a big investment and, well, a big thing to cart home. Before you put time and money into one of these purchases, check out our tips for buying antique furniture – then enjoy the hunt for something unique!

1). Research, research, research

There’s so much to learn about antique furniture! Before you start browsing and seriously making purchases, read as much as you can about antique furniture – especially if there is a certain time period or style that you really like. The more educated you are about the furniture, the easier it will be to spot reproductions and overpriced items.

2). Look for the mark from the manufacturer or maker

Most antique furniture has some kind of mark from the person or place that was responsible for building it – often in places that people wouldn’t see, like the inside of a dresser drawer or the backside of a piece.

3). Look for signs of age

Since the trend now is to make furniture look antique, you might come across a piece that someone has modified to look older than it is. But, there are some telltale signs – first, look for imperfections. If something was handmade, then there will be variations in the woodwork – if everything looks exactly uniform, then there’s reason to be suspicious.
