could not be more excited about what we're finding in this that
belonged to a life-long Elginite AND longtime Elgin Watch Factory
Buried in the basement (but we'll be bringing it upstairs) is her
watch bench complete with catch screen and all those amazing little
drawers, and also the storage cabinet that stands next to it.
often, we go into Elgin estates and people say "we're told
this came from the watch factory" .... but this time, we know

In addition, the basement is just loaded with tiny treasures --
I'm not sure what the whole story is here, but I have a hunch her
years assembling watches led to her love for gathering little items

She collected glass, so we have some Depression glass, Carnival

We have Franciscan Desert Rose, both the dinnerware and some matching
Lots of paintings of the European village genre.
