Estate sale yummies

Last Saturday, I went to a very nice estate sale. The only problem - I was very, very late. Silly me forgot all about it until after lunch. The good part was that the workers were getting awfully tired and wanted to be done. They were making some awesome deals. Deals on what was left, that is. I don't even want to think about all of the treasures that went home with someone else.

The sale was for the late Mary Lewis Kleberg. You can read more about her by clicking HERE. She did wonderful things for Kingsville and South Texas. She will be greatly missed.

This was a really cool piece. Can you read the engraving? It was done in 1895. Sweet, huh?
