I recently went to an estate sale my good friend Judy (http://www.twohumblepickers.blogspot.com/) told me about. It was a long way from her house but I was staying at my mom's that weekend so I was already half way there! So down to Galveston we went, my mom tagging along even though she doesn't care for that sort of thing. What a great sale!! It was a 6200 sq ft home close to the beach in Galveston, Tx and it was FULL, I said FULL of costumes, vintage hats, mannequins, vintage furs, vintage clothing, furniture and all sorts of theatrical paraphernalia!! It had been owned by a gentleman named Danny Morgan, quite a talented fellow from what I've been told---he had become very well known not only in Galveston but also in New York and California. He was acquainted with numerous hollywood stars and was very much sought after for his costuming ability and stage/party decoration. Unfortunately, Danny had passed away and this sad event leads us back to the estate sale. I found myself wandering through this huge home with the many, many other seekers of treasures and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of all I saw. AND, the lovely lady who was managing the estate sale, Christine Solis, and her wonderful crew were phenomenal!! Despite the heat, the large crowd of 'not always so nice' customers and all the hard work involved in an estate sale, they were always curtious, kind and helpful. So I hope you enjoy these pictures of one of the best 'picks' I've ever been on!! and p.s.----Judy showed up on the second day--I knew she couldn't stay away from a good pick!!
