|Lake and Pavilion in Horseshoe Bend Neighborhood - Roswell, Georgia|
This lovely neighborhood is located along the Chattahoochee River not far from my own riverfront subdivision of Neely Farm.
There were two great sales going on in the neighborhood and the overall prices were pretty good - not usually the case with sales run by estate sale companies.Named after the magnificent horseshoe formed by the Chattahoochee River as it sweeps southwest along the rolling land, Horseshoe Bend was the original setting for the Atlanta Steeplechase - a springtime tradition.

|I put in a bid on these chairs - they were asking $135 each (for pair) and I bid 50%.|
|The sale featured a lot of "Americana" type furniture and accents. They were in good shape and well priced. This is just my style so I didn't see that much to think about.|
The next sale was on Steeplechase Drive. This was a newer house with more classic furniture. The Vintage Girls were running the show - they usually have 2-3 sales every weekend and tend to have a well staged sale as well as good prices. This sale was no exception. Unlike many companies, however, they are sticklers for the prices: full price on day one, 25% off on day two and 50% off on day three.
I saw a set of Lee's Industries (excellent American furniture manufacturer) on day one for $110 per chair and ottoman - a pretty good price. I am a stubborn (and cheap) person and they would not take a cent less so I left a bid for $170 for the four pieces. I got the call this morning that the bid was accepted and just picked them up to be dropped off at Lee's Upholsterers in Norcross, GA. I do still have to select my fabric(s)!
But I'm getting ahead of myself. I liked quite a few things at this sale and could have bought more.
|These are some of the high-end items at the sale including the great breakfront.|
|My favorite purchase ($15) - a sweet small chair that I plan to refinish and use as an accent piece!|
|One of two sets of Lee's Industries chairs and ottomans that I bought - these will be nice redone!|
