Welcome to Catherine's
Digital Yard Sale

To avoid a mad rush in a couple of months, I am going through my house progressively, purging and packing as I go. As I do, I'm going to list items here that I don't have a place for in the new home. Some items will be available immediately and others closer to move-out (but you can call dibs now!); I'll indicate which, below. Given that the new home is in such a different style and damp climate compared to my current home, I will be leaving behind many lovely items that have nothing wrong with them–some genuine antiques.

I am only listing items that are still in good shape. 

 

This page will be updated frequently with new items, so be sure to check back!

 

 Since I'm only sharing this site with friends and family, everything will be free or priced at half of what I would list it for in a regular yard sale. Still too much for you? Make me an offer–everything must go!

 

Everything is first come, first served.

If you see something you want or have a question, you can let me know by text/email or contact me through the form at the bottom of this page–whatever is easiest. 

I also have selections of perfectly good smaller things, including books, stationery, unused toiletries, non-perishable food, linens, etc. that will be available for free and can be checked out whenever you are over at my place.

WINTER THROW PILLOWS

Let's face it, as cozy as these make my home feel here in MA (even in the middle of summer because that's how I roll), they're going to be downright weird to see on the couch in FL. ^_^

FLORAL SHOWER CURTAIN

I freakin' love this thing, but I'm planning a different look in my new bathrooms. This durable shower curtain was handmade for me in fabric I personally selected for the lovely pattern. If desired, I will throw in any or all of the following: the rod, rings, matching window treatment, and matching red towel set.

FREE - I just want it to go to a good home <3

CLAIMED!

This antique walnut side table has a unique size and shape that will fit anywhere. 29 3/4"H and compact 10" Dia makes this a perfect stand to hold a lamp, plant or use as a decorative side table in a tight spot.

$10

OVAL BRAIDED RUG

This guy has served me well since it was bought as set decoration for "All Nighter"–and it's still in great condition! It measures about 93"L x 64"W at the widest points (it's folded in half in the picture).

ANTIQUE MAHOGANY DESK

IMG_3076.JPG

This gorgeous genuine antique, solid mahogany desk sports graceful queen Anne legs and is in excellent condition. It has 5 drawers with original solid brass hardware. This is a beautiful example of this style that you can pick up at a steal, since I don't have the time to take it to Antiques Roadshow. Comes with black protector pad to preserve the top. A versatile piece, in its long life with us, we have used this as everything from a work desk to a bedroom vanity to a hall console table. I'm sad to let this piece go, but the Floridian climate would eat it in no time. 30.5"H x 19"D x 42"W. The leg-hole opening measures 22.5"H at the lowest point and 16 1/4"W.

$75

HONEYWELL SPACE HEATERS X2

Happy to get these into the hands of those who will continue to brave the New England winters. The one on the right is a workhorse, and the one on the left has a temp gauge and auto on/off feature to keep the room at a specific temp.

$10 each or both for $15

IKEA BILLY BOOKCASES X2

WOODEN SHOE RACK

Okay, I know I said everything on here is in good shape, BUT I'm putting this guy on here. It's pretty worn, but I have to say, it just won't die and is a really useful double-decker shoe rack if you need one.​

SOLD!

LOCKING FILING CABINET

Not much to say here–fully functional and has served me well.  

$15

IKEA MEDIA/RAMEN SHELF

This tall, thin Ikea shelf provides lots of storage in a small footprint. It has served as an organizer in the bathroom, living room and basement–still in great condition. Click the picture to see a link with the dimensions.

$10

ANTIQUE MAHOGANY NIGHTSTAND 

Another genuine antique, solid mahogany piece with graceful queen Anne legs. 2 drawers with original solid brass hardware. You can see from the picture that this guy has been through some stuff (some water staining on the top and the feet are being repaired), but since it's solid wood, all it needs is a sanding and re-staining to bring it back to its original beauty. 27.5"H x 13.5"D x 17"W

$30

BRONZE-LOOK LAMP & SHADE

This medium-sized, bronze look base lamp casts a lovely warm glow that will light the whole room.

CONVERTED ANTIQUE LAMP

Stunning converted oil lamp. A genuine antique from the turn of the century, now wired for electric use. The intricate detail on the solid brass base makes quite a statement. Both the Kelly green shade and the chimney are original–very unusual! Perfect for a desk, nightstand or side table. Look at the pictures of the antique desk, above to see it in its natural habitat.

 

$35

FAUX ORCHID

I know many of my homies cultivate living orchids; I also know 95% of them fail to keep the alive. For those friends, here's a lovely option.

ANTIQUE HAND-PAINTED DEACON'S BENCH

This solid wood deacon's bench is perfect for an entryway or bench seating at a table. It has hand-painted gold detail and was painted black, but since it's hard wood, it can be sanded and repainted or stained in any color. D34"H x 44"W x 18"D 

$25 or free to members of the Rettenmyer clan.

CONVERTIBLE ANTIQUE STOOL/SIDETABLE/ STEPLADDER

For those looking for something a little different or at any rate, a practical conversation starter, this is a fully functional antique Stool/Sidetable/Stepladder with hand-painted gold-leaf detail. I can guarantee you will NEVER find a piece like this anywhere else. Back in the day, this would have been an infant's high chair. We don't recommend using is for this purpose unless you want to risk child services being called. Seat is 24"H x 14"W x 12.5"D.

 

$20 or FREE to members of the Rettnemyer clan.

HANDMADE WREATH FORMS

These wreaths were made by hand by my grandmother out of grapevines (sadly not a match for the Florida aesthetic). Use as-is or as a base form to build up your own wreaths from whatever materialyou choose–just add some greens, berries and bows. Measure approximately 26" and 30"Dia.

FREE

BIG LEATHER ARMCHAIRS X2 AND OTTOMAN

Anyone who has been to my house knows how comfy these high grade leather chairs are. In great condition as-is, and with a good cleaning and conditioning, you will get years of use out of these. They are virtually indestructible! There are two matching chairs and one ottoman (I can send a pic of the other pieces if interested).  

​à la carte: $40 each for the chairs and $20 for the ottoman OR $75 for the whole set.
