Estate Sale at LaFavorites

It is with great honor and privilege that we will be hosting the family estate sale of the late Dr. & Mrs. Minthorn, longtime respected community members and residents of Longview, WA. With the passing of Mrs. Minthorn in March at 100 years young, she leaves behind 75 years of treasures from their Old West Side home. As a very young girl, I have faint memories of going to their home with my grandmother, who was their housekeeper for a time. (Of course she always gave us the daunting task of polishing the silver, but fond memories, nonetheless) As the family has brought over box after box of “family treasures,” it has given me a thrill to unwrap each and every thing that I can imagine Mrs. Minthorn took great pleasure in purchasing over the years.

Please join The Minthorn family and myself for this exclusive event at, LaFavorites, 204 S. Pacific Ave, Kelso, WA (next to the Kelso Theater Pub)

Friday, Nov 6th 12:00pm – 7:00pm and

Saturday, Nov 7th 10:00am – 6:00pm

In honor of The Minthorns and their commitment to this community over the years, it is our pleasure to offer an evening of celebration while shopping these amazing opportunities. On Friday from 4:00pm – 7:00 come enjoy a wine tasting and hors d’oeuvre from The Backstage CafĂ© and the sweet sounds of Sherri Kingsley as she serenades us with some oldies, but goodies!

Some items include…. 7 pc bedroom set, marble-top table, Chinese country table and chairs; Asian chest. Collectibles incl. porcelain dinnerware in Rose Medallion and Coin, English Wedgewood;  glassware; antique plates, figurines; place mats; Xmas ornaments; cookbooks. Much more. Cash & credit cards accepted. No presales, we know it’s tempting but please do not show up early!

To cute to not share!

I usually spend my time knitting, but I have admired this crocheted baby blanket pattern ever since I had a customer bring it in several years ago. It recently popped up and I thought the new yarn, Panda Pearl from Crystal Palace would be beautiful to use. It is a worsted weight of their popular panda silk fingering weight yarn, 53%bamboo/42% Merino/5% Silk. It is SO soft, I am thrilled with how it turned out! Yarn and free pattern available now at LaFavorites.... And lets not forget the adorable, completely handmade doll in this photo. It was designed and crafted by a former employee of mine, Ashley Poulsen of Penelope's Eclectic Closet. I have 5 of these cuties available in the shop for $35 each. When they are gone, there will be no more. It would be the perfect gift for that special little lady in your life, don't you think?
