Meridian Hills Estate Sale

Oh my giddy aunt. Put this sale on your estate sale map for this weekend. Seriously. I’m not kidding.

Just…wow.

When: Friday, September 18: 9-5     Saturday, September 19: 9-5

Where: 3313 N. Preston Dr. Oklahoma City

This sale sums up why we all love going to estate sales. It has something for everyone. Vintage to current military uniforms, memorabilia, and original art; the always classic Franciscan Desert Rose dishes; a plethora of new and hardly used Vera Bradley bags; a classic Bernina (yes! Bernina!) sewing machine; and a fantastic wrought iron patio set…just to name only a few of the items in this VERY packed house. We are spanning the ages with this one. Antique, mid-century, and current treasures…this house is absolutely brimming with treasures!

Let’s just start in the kitchen while I gather my composure, shall we?

This isn't the new limited-use Correll. Nope, this is the stove to oven to freezer Correl. And the blue cornflower, of course.

Yes, you are gazing upon a sea of Franciscan Desert Rose. I'll give you a moment.

Speaking of backyards, how about a nice wrought iron table set? These babies are all the rage these days!

Heavy, and in great shape! Just a coat of paint (in any color...OSU orange??) and this set will be the talk of your backyard. Did I mention they are heavy?

This, sewers, is the find of the day. A Bernina 801 Sport. I’ve opened her up and she’s clean as clean can get. She needs to be oiled, but I’ve sewn with her and, well…its a Bernina. What do you expect? Solid metal, so it’s quite heavy…

image…yet it’s quite compact.

Even has it's cover.

It even still has all it’s original gizmos!

imageThat’s a lot of feet! And you can still get parts for this machine! Seriously, if you need a machine, this is the one to get.

We also have lots of great vintage items.
