Early this morning I got up and headed to the beautiful town of Cohasset - the town where Witches of Eastwick was filmed. Cohasset is about 25 minutes from where I live and is just about one of the prettiest little towns in MA.
I had heard there was going to be an Estate Sale and that the lady who has passed away was an avid quilter. Upon arriving at the house all I could think was "it is so pretty, it is a shame that she will no longer be here to enjoy it" Then I walked through the doors...OMG! It was a quilters dream. I stood there just staring at all the piles of fabrics, the boxes and boxes of fabrics, the beautiful quilts, the pretty pictures and art work, the boxes of arts and craft supplies and the pile of bags containing lace. I stood there in awe and also with a heavy heart. This was her life. You could tell she loved what she did and enjoyed collecting beautiful things. I thought to myself "is this going to be me one day - is this what will happen once I'm gone?" All your cherished items left for strangers to pick through.
I was happy to see that there were other quilters there all admiring her quilts and treasures. Hopefully we will all do justice to the items we bought. All sales were for Cash only...I wish I had had more money on me so I could have bought one of her art quilts. In the end I spent every last dime I had in my purse on fabric, vintage lace, doilies, tatting, ribbon and even a pair of beautiful vintage porcelain pins. All in all I ended up with approximately 40 yards of fabric. Here are a few of the treasures I got.
