Authentic Shaker Boxes
My father who was the ultimate collector used to buy things in the hopes that when he died it would be the greatest Auction of all time. Well sadly it will be This Labor Day Weekend in Vermont. I will post the link tomorrow. Here are some of the things that you can find at the Herb Yalof Auction.
Authentic Shaker Boxes he had hundreds! Oh and we found so many amazing treasures inside!
Brass Hand bells - at least 60. On his last day he gave me a bell and we made a deal that if there was life after death he would ring the bell. Well the bell rings all the time but it is because my kids keep finding it and ringing it. I love that bell!
Herb used to buy other peoples collections at Auctions. He loved thinking that they spent thier whole life collecting Brass Candlesticks and that in one raise of the hand he could have their life''s work. So I really think he had at least 70 and he lined them up on the beams of our house from small to large. It was a spectacular effect!
He LOVED Secrataries but fortunatly for my mother the kind that look like this with the roll top - He had at least 6. Sadly none of us wanted any.
Oh and sooooo much more! I used to be a huge collector of Glass paper weights, vintage purses, and Bright cased glass vases which I still love. Are you collecting anything or in love with a collection you have seen?
Thanks Jane for reminding me of
