I have had to post an advertisement on Craig's List:
Following a Yard Sale advertisement in an Iowa newspaper a few weeks ago: A family member in Iowa had an estate sale in early November, and accidently sold two items that were NOT to be in the sale. This yard/estate sale was held on Brown Street in Davenport, and at the nearby park pavillion behind the house.
I am hoping the two people who purchased these items will contact me; so their money can be returned, and the items returned to me.
----A 1920-1930's style lamp with cloth cord. The lamp is approximately 20-24" tall. I have been advised that this lamp was re-sold by the dealer who purchased it at a recent antique sale in Des Moines, Iowa.
----An Eastlake style small dresser with mirror. The dresser and mirror was refinished 20 years ago, has brass teardrop dresser pulls, three obvious drawers and 1 "hidden" drawer at the bottom. It is believed the dresser was purchased by a gentleman who may live in a nearby Davenport neighborhood.
Both items belonged to my late grandmother; the dresser was refinished by my late father, and both were stored at my family member's home until I could find safe transport to my new home.
They were both sold by mistake. If you recognize either of these items, please call me.
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
