As with the amazing scarecrows, this too was a serendipitous discovery in Chester, New Hampshire, on Sunday, October 28, 2018, on our way to an estate sale.

It is relatively new — i.e., built in 2011. We were in Chester around that time to pick up Maya. Don’t think we noticed it then. Maybe it was still being built.

Very picturesque. Nice job. Another kudos to Chester. Obviously a justifiably proud town. Bravo.

We stumbled upon this extraordinary display of creativity, historicalitybonohime, serendipitously, on our way to an estate sale in Chester, New Hampshire, on Sunday, October 28, 2018.

It was certainly different and worth lingering over. And that we did, on the way back from the sale. We stopped at the Town Center and got out and walked — taking these pictures.

Appears that it is a yearly tradition — and I assume that it is time to coincide with Halloween. How cool. Bravo Chester. Kudos Chester. It is a lovely town. We do have an association with the town though I only recalled it when we were driving through. We got Maya, from Chester, in 2011. So, we have an emotional connection with Chester.

Definitely worth going to see, though I suspect, alas, that all the rain we have had over the last few days, including today, would have taken a toll — though the beauty of their design is that they appear to drain well.

Hats off to Chester. Great job. Very clever.

Estate Sale In Chester, NH, With Some Incredible Antique Toys & Memorabilia.

by Anura Guruge

Deanna saw this on the Web. Some pretty neat antique toys — NOT that I want any of them, anymore. I have a few similar. We no longer have the space.

We went to one of these “603 Estate Sales” in June in Alton — had a lot of fun and made out like BANDITS. We were there at the end and they basically gave us a ton of stuff for $15 (I think). At that stage they just wanted to get rid of as much stuff as they could.

Sadly the weather is not going to be nice on Saturday. That might be a damper. Sunday might be ‘OK’ but all the good stuff would be gone by then since I am sure diehard collectors will be queing up for this Sale in the rain.

This is not a complete list, not even close, and excludes those prefixed ‘New’, e.g., New London. In alphabetical order.

Writing my earlier post on ‘Portsmouth‘ promoted doing this list today, though it had been on my list of lists to do.
