How good are you at thrifting? You may enjoy the occasional yard sale, but the best finds come from auction houses and estate sales. The more you know about looking for vintage goods for sale in Seattle, the easier it will be to procure some truly unique pieces you can add to your collection.
As you start to look around for the best finds at auctions and estate sales, several pieces are truly timeless – and often valuable! These are some of the top decor items, furniture pieces, and accessories that you should be looking for when browsing these fantastic sales:
What About Tables?
Demilunes are half-moon-shaped tables often used in drawing rooms dating back to 18th century France. The compact design makes them great for placement under a window, in a hallway, or as a repurposed vanity.
What About Chairs?
Wingback chairs are quality-crafted chairs dating back to the 1600s with a high back or “wings” meant to help block smoke from the fireplace.
What About Accent Seating?
Setees are furniture pieces often called love seats that offer seating for two. Settees date back to the 17th century, and these are beautiful pieces of furniture great for placement at the side of your dining table or the foot of the bed in your master suite.
What About Silver?
Pieces crafted from this precious metal have been highly sought after for hundreds of years. If you get lucky, you might find items that date back to the 1600s or 1700s.

My husband and I have been attending Ginny's Girls Estate Sales for a couple years now. Unlike other sales we've attended, they are consistently well run, friendly, and fairly priced. Because of their sales, my workshop is full of quality tools and our home is furnished with quality name-brand kitchen, bath, and other home accessories. Why buy throw-away stuff from a big box retailer when you can be GREEN and save money by purchasing gently used home furnishings and hardware from Ginny's Girls?!
