Name Your Poison - The Estate Sale of Dr. Clyde Burgamy

When I saw the ad for the estate sale of Dr. and Mrs. Clyde Burgamy I knew that Mom and I would have to go to this sale. I worked at Doctors Hospital here in Augusta many years ago and knew both Dr. Burgamy and his wife. I can remember the smell of Dr. Burgamy's pipe lingering in the hallways and elevators of the hospital (yes in those days you could smoke inside the hospital). I did spot something in the online photos that I was going to make a beeline for in hopes that I got to it first. As soon as we stepped in the door I asked the estate sale lady where the bar was and she pointed to the left and off I went. I did get to them first and quickly wrapped them up and put them in my bag. There were several people right on my heels! If I had gotten to them a minute later they would have been gone! So here they are:

Cora Name Your Poison Glasses (complete set of 6)

I just can't tell you how fabulous these glasses are!

I also got a complete set of Georges Briard Frosted Crane Glasses.

Dr. Burgamy was an OB/GYN so I was happy to find some Storks, I think these would make great centerpieces for a Baby Shower.

I was delighted to find a ton of boys rompers from the 1940s, 1950s and some very vintage LaCoste childrens sweaters.

I also found this little vintage Christmas Angel (she needs a little cleaning but no cracks or chips).

We did hit a couple of other estate sales and I got a few other things, I couldn't believe that these vintage Christmas napkin rings were still sitting at the second sale we went to because we didn't get there until around noon.

I loved this chippy dresser tray and tin (also got a few pieces of jewelry, the basketball charm is engraved 1957).

I was very happy with my haul this week! I guess I will be spending the weekend cleaning all the vintage rompers so I can get them listed.

Hope you are very happy with your haul this weekend too!
