We are so very honored to present the Estate of Jack & Hilda Thomas.

Jack worked with NES retiring with over 38 years of service retiring as the Data Processing Mgr.
Hilda began as a full time Home maker and Mother with an avid interest in Antiques and Collectibles. For over 40 years, Hilda and Jack collected antiques and during this time opened an antique business in Franklin, TN.
Jack, also with a keen interest in collectibles joined her full time in the business upon his retirement. Sadly,they passed away within 2 months of each other in 2015.
"A common desire for collecting has led to an astounding collection of Americana. It is our honor to present this estate to you!"
Set up will take quite awhile as we go through everything!
Pictures will be added on a weekly basis.
I tried to give you some idea of what we are working with by showing you some pics of just the 2 story workshop which is full of collections and furniture.
Bear in mind that the pics you are seeing came from boxes and shelving in the workshop alone and that the general shot pics in the workshop that you see are of yet to be opened treasures!
This is not counting the many, many items in the house. The house itself was built around 1920 and holds it's own ambience.
Sit back, enjoy, and begin to peruse the pictures of these items, while realizing, as we take more pictures, we will be adding to them on a weekly basis.
