|This sale was at the home of my late cousin who died last Spring.|
|Walking up the driveway...|
|The sale was outside, in the carport and this driveway area.|
|There were numerous items lined up on the retaining wall.|
|Some of the wicker from the sunroom area|
|This was the second day of the sale.|
We didn't know it would start yesterday.

|My cousin was a voracious reader. There were always books books books everywhere! She introduced me to many writers.|
|In one corner of the living room...|
where some of the furniture was kind of "stored" here and there
This little vintage French-style curio will be coming to live with me. This is the piece she bought to keep her prized Lladro collection together. My cousin and his wife didn't want it since they really only wanted to keep the antiques. We will be going back for the cabinet as well as my mother's old Desert Rose Franciscan-ware dishes which he gave back to me. I am planning to use it to keep my silver (which has been stashed in my garage for seven years!).
|A last look as we drove away|
The end of an era. It still seems so surreal.
