If you’re looking for nostalgia... it’s out there this weekend. And when I say “out there” Someone asked me if I wanted to buy this. I said “No planks.” #found #nostalgia #tv #1970s #heehaw #estatesale #connectucut #urbanarcheology

This 200 year old home has been a source of one historical surprise after another. Held again in July - I returned to take a deeper look. In the barn was this headstone in 2 pieces. With permission and help we carried it to the barn floor and reassembled it. I can’t wait to visit the Easton Historical Society and find out more about Sarah Sanford. The mystery is - I purchased sheet music from the 1860s -1870s and written faintly on each in pencil is Sarah Sanford. The headstone shows that she passed in 1849. How is that possible? #found #headstone #Easton #connecticut #eastonhistoricalsociety #history #mystery #estatesale #urbanarcheology

I bought a box of heads - because - why not? Another find another education. I had never seen these before - but one look at their detail and I couldn’t pass them up. I learned that Bosson’s Chalkware was made from 1946 until 1996. Are these rare or valuable? I don’t care. Some things deserve more of my time than what I have to spend at a sale - so paying means I get to enjoy them for just a little longer. #found #bossons #decoration #chalkware #estatesale #collecting #urbanarcheology

The wine cellar under the “Breakers” (Newport’s largest mansion) was padlocked for many years and when it was opened this is what they found. Hundreds of bottle of champagne and wine many leaking from rotted corks. #newport #found #urbanarcheology #wine #champagne #rhodeisland
