Weekend Update - Neighborhood Sales

This is a great garage and estate sales weekend here in the Atlanta area - it is almost impossible not to see multiple neighborhood and other sales throughout the area.  Usually, I travel 40 miles or more on a Saturday morning getting to the better sales but yesterday I was able to stay pretty close to home with several top-notch neighborhood sales.   In the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs areas I found  great sales in the Deerfield and Dunwoody Club neighborhoods.  Neighborhood sales are organized within a neighborhood and bring in a lot of customers because it is easy to get around to a lot of sales in a reasonable period of time.  I have also found that the best prices are found in neighborhood sales - people have cleaned out their homes and just want to get rid of stuff. My own neighborhood has at least one neighborhood sale per year.

A special treat for me this weekend is a visit by Dutch cousin Monique who is studying in Richmond, Virginia.  She accompanied me on my sale route and got a taste of what this American custom is all about.  She also met my upholsterer shop owner, Mrs. Song.  We had a wonderful time and I nabbed a number of great buys:

  • Vintage channel back chair
  • French bergere style chair and ottoman
  • Modern style wingback
  • Skirted chaise
