|S.San Francisco Victorian|
Recently, I got what I thought was a rather typical call. A woman's mother had passed away and she had to sell the house contents. She was just getting ready to have a dumpster delivered to get started. I stopped her quick. People always tend to throw out the paper and keep the china. In all her piles of "to be recycled" I found old fashion model shots from the 1940's.

Her Mom had been the one to inherit things from both sides of the family. She had just kept it all boxed up. Thousands of antique photos, many from the 1850's-1870's. Here is one photo from a rare set of Victorian shoe store photographs. A shoe cobbler at work on a Victorian shoe.

I love this photograph. This is the heirs great grandmother with her mom, aunts and uncles. I love the look on the boy face, "if I move, grandma is going to let me have it!"

After I spent an afternoon there, I realized the estate was anything but typical. There were alligator covered trunks, charming 1930's aprons, a vast collection of old childrens books, sterling silver serving dishes, 19th century glass, and so much more. I'll be going through boxes from this family for a while.
I'm putting items up for sale daily on my site: Nachokitty.etsy.com I am selling the estate on consignment so that the heirs get as much value as possible from it. Here's a few more items from this wonderful household.
