Fort Worth, Texas Sale – Back to Polish Silver.

My friend Pat Eaton says I am addicted to silver polish. I went back to Fort Worth to help a friend at an estate sale he is conducting for the trust a deceased antique dealer that had 9 houses full!!!!! This trip I didn’t have as much to polish. All the sterling had been locked up in a huge vault and didn’t need polishing.We left on Tuesday. I was finished with school and came back on Saturday. I am going back Monday for 10 days to clean, dust and polish… whatever is needed. It’s a free trip and I get to do something different. So, here are some of the pictures for the first of 4 sales. There is so much it had to be done over several months. For more information go to: and look up the Fort Worth area sales and the name Kenneth Bortz. After this sale they will start getting ready for the next one.
