With not too much to do this weekend I was hoping to find a good estate sale so I looked to see if there were any in my area on Estatesales.net and one poped up as ‘going on right now’ just down the road from us. The sale had been going on for just a couple hours and was advertised as an estate sale at the ‘Historic Monroe House’ in Sebastopol, CA. Cars and people everywhere. Walking up the front stairs I run right into Selena Cate from Apron Thrift Girlcarrying out large furniture items, she had a few tables and such so she got there in time to score!! I wonder if she is taking the items to her booth at the Antique Society antique mall just down the road. Anyway, walking inside I am immediately struck with the beautiful house that already has a sale pending. The house is a grand turn of the century home. The Monroe House, built circa 1894, has a wonderful presence and stately and spacious rooms with lots of period details in the moldings. Gorgeous house. It seemed like most everything was already sold except for the usual mugs, old tools, pots and pans. Only the main floor was open to the public and the top floors were closed off. The kitchen sure had that vintage charm with its turquoise counter tops!! I saw a couple stunning stained glass panels but they were also sold. Oh well, even if I didn’t buy anything I got to see a stunning turn of the century home and got to admire some very pretty items.
