‘Letting go of the past’ Online estate auction runs through July 21
Potential buyers can bid at www.bidblindsquirrelauctions.com through July 21.
DALTON An avid antique collector and her family are meticulously sorting through beloved belongings with the hope they will end up in the hands of others who will enjoy them just the same.
The longtime Dalton hair stylist and former owner of The Dalton Gazette & Kidron News could never pass up pretty plates with roses on them, according to her daughter, Sue Hayes. Her father was always on the look out for old metal items.
Searching for and collecting these unique items, as well as keeping treasured articles passed down from relatives was an enjoyable hobby for Glenn and Marge Smith.
They also sold antiques, along with candy, greeting cards and other items out of the newspaper office that the family lived above.
Now, many of the collectible items may be a dream come true for other antique collectors and history lovers.
Still as sharp as ever at 87, Smith decided to move to Shady Lawn’s assisted living facility to give her knees a break from walking up the stairway to her second-floor apartment in the more than century-old building overlooking the heart of Dalton.
She and her family are organizing an online estate sale July 15-21. Winning bids may be picked up 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. July 23 at 9 W Main St.
