My latest estate sale find

My latest estate sale find

What I know about this teapot is that it was made by the Pairpoint. Pairpoint was a company that started in 1880. When I bought this teapot, I thought it was pewter and to my surprise it is quadrupled silver plated. If anyone knows anymore about this teapot please let me know.

Estate Sale finds for the week of November 2nd

Despite the cold weather, this was surprising another good week for yard/estate/demo sales. Living near the coast as we do, many people buy the land a house sits on the for the ocean view or proximity to the beach,  then tear it down and build a brand new house. People will often sell the entire contents of the house to be torn down, in what is called a demolition or demo sale.

These sales are indoors and can be held year round. Estates sales are the same way. You enter the house and go through room by room. The contents including entire kitchens, bathrooms, along with bedrooms and living rooms are for sale. Everything is laid out and priced by the company conducting the sale. These are some of my favorite treasure hunting grounds. Here are a few pictures of the items I picked up this weekend.
