Before Closets We Had Armoires – Find Them At Estate Sales ThrowBack Thursday

Europe still uses armoires, but in the United States we replaced armoires in homes built in the mid-20th century and today with closets, however, you can still find the antique armoires at estate sales or buy a new one (please note the quality probably won’t be the same). The great news is that most of the antique armoires are made to come apart making them portable.

Many bed and breakfast establishments still use them, especially if they are in a home that was not built with closets (Victorian era particularly).

Our ThrowBack Thursday here on EstateSalesNews.com is the armoire.
