This is my favorite monthly estate sale!
Every month, on the first weekend, my favorite estate sale is held in Mobile, AL.
This fabulous monthly estate sale has been held for many years. It’s Mobile’s oldest and largest monthly estate sale, and luckily, I have attended it from the beginning of it’s inception.
Over the years, I have rarely missed a sale, even when we lived in another state.
There is such a great selection of antiques and the prices are very good.
With each sale, I always manage to find some great pieces at wonderful prices!
This month, I thought I would share with you a little sampling of the treasures that can be found at this sale.
The venue is huge and there’s always something for everyone!
This French sideboard was a beauty. It was painted in gray with a creamy white trim.
I seriously considered bringing it home, but not knowing where I would put it, I passed.
I’m always drawn to these carved pedestals.
They are so versatile and can be used in so many different ways.
This pretty table immediately caught my eye.
I love the painted scenes. I believe it’s Hungarian in origin.
Looking for antique furniture? Look no further!
If you are looking for antique furniture, this 4 day monthly estate sale is the place you need to be.
The selection is amazing and you can find many different styles and periods of antiques.
You will need to get there early for the best selection, because things usually sell very quickly.
The doors open at 8:00 a.m. on the first Thursday of the month, but the early birds get there around 6:30 a.m. for first dibs.
On Thursday and Friday of the first weekend of the month, everything is priced as marked.
On Saturday, smalls and artwork is 30% off, and on Sunday, 60% off.
There are walls and walls covered in amazing antique artwork and mirrors.
I love this pair of vintage Italian sconces.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t quick enough, and they went home with someone else.
This pretty French chaise was gorgeous, and I’m halfway kicking myself that I didn’t bring it home with me.
I rarely find these in this wonderful condition.
You can see those beautiful curvy legs peeking out.
There’s something for everyone!
The furniture, artwork, and smalls go on for miles.
Not only do they have this huge monthly estate sale, but there is also an amazing antique store
attached as well, giving you over 15,000 feet of antique paradise!
There are hundreds (maybe even thousands) of antique books covering any and all subject matter.
This is where I always load up on antique French books.
This little french chest was a true beauty.
I wouldn’t have done a thing to it. It was perfect as found!
The selection of antique and vintage lighting is usually plentiful with a wonderful selection of
chandeliers, sconces, and pendant lighting.
There are tables and tables covered in antique glass ware with a selection to entice any decor style.
The selection of small items for sale is a bit overwhelming, with prices starting at $1.00!
There are rows and rows of tables with pricing at $1, $3, $5, $10, $15, $25, and then individually priced.
There’s something for everyone and every budget.
Antique French clocks always attract me because they are like works of art.
I don’t even care if they run or not, it’s the sculptural beauty that draws me to them, and there were some beauties at this sale.
If dishes are your passion, then you’ll be in heaven with tables and tables of dishes, china, and flatware in a myriad of patterns and colors.
I fell in love with this gorgeous floor clock.
It was very tall, standing around seven feet, and the wood was beautiful.
There seemed to be an abundance of bombe chests at this sale, and this one caught my eye.
It didn’t come home with me, but now I’m wishing that it had!
Once I was finished shopping the estate sale, I had to take a peek inside the antique shop.
The two owners, Charles and Greg, source the most breathtaking and amazing antiques from around the world.
This stunning Christ statue is made of cast iron, and has gorgeous patina.
It’s much larger than it looks in the picture.
I always wonder at the stories behind these pieces…..if only they could talk.
This set of french chairs in the original blue paint are drool worthy!
I could just imagine them sitting around my breakfast table.
We found lots of goodies for the shop and I also found a few for myself!
Now you know why this is my favorite estate sale!
I can hear you shouting at the page, “WHERE is this place?”
Well……it’s Old Mobile Antiques Gallery in Mobile, Alabama!
Their amazing estate sale is held the first weekend of every month…..it’s an experience that you don’t want to miss! And I just might see you there!
