Estate Sale Pick - Holmby Hills

I love a good estate sale. Maybe it's because I'm a nosy nelly and like to get a peek inside people's fancy houses and boy are there some amazing ones out here in Los Angeles! Or perhaps it's because I fantasize that I'll snap up some unnoticed treasure for $100 bucks that's really worth a million dollars. The best I've done so far is a set of Fortuny fabric curtains for $50. In any case, It's really fun to see the architecture not to mention the goods on sale. You can find vintage designer bags like Louis Vuitton, stunning furnishings and decor usually at a bargain especially on the last day of the sale.

I like to stay on the Westside because that's my hood, but I've been to some great ones in other neighborhoods too. I thought I would start posting my pick for estate sale of the week, and this week it is one of Vanya's Distinct Possessions. Her sales are usually in upscale neighborhoods like Bel Air, Beverly Hills, or in this case Holmby Hills. She knows her stuff so things are usually priced accordingly, but I have gotten a deal on the last day, and don't be afraid to haggle!

Sometimes it can be hard to see the forest through the trees (or clutter as the case may be) but at this particular sale it looks like it's all about the dining room. I'm swooning over these white Chinese Chippendale chairs and that Chandelier not to mention the carved mirror.

All those chairs need is a less traditional fabric update and they can go with a more modern, transitional, or eclectic decor. Here are a similar set in this Lonny Magazine spread:
