“My Captain” Finds a Home Yardsailing on Facebook
One popular website, and app, has become an unlikely source for home furnishings - the ultra popular Facebook. Its all part of a new trend aptly named “Facebook Yard Sales”. If you haven’t heard of this trend you may be missing out on some amazing, and incredibly unique, bargains. Madison, Connecticut, for one, has its very own Facebook yard sale and I am certain there are many more to come. It makes perfect sense for homesellers to post belongings that they can’t take with them to their new residences. For those of you who equate yard sale shopping with a crisp fall morning driving around and looking for street signs, this is a bit different. Once you search Facebook and find the site you’d like to visit, you’ll need to request to become a member of the group. Once accepted, you are ready to go, but before you do you need to be aware of the yard sale rules. Yard sale sites are really big on rules and if you don’t follow them the group could quite easily turn on you (which is the second thing these sites offer - and that is drama). Once an item is posted you can use the ‘comment’ box to post your interest or questions. Rules are that the first person to comment on a post has 24 hours to decide if they want the item or not (so you’ll need to check often as there is nothing worse than finding the perfect piece with 10 people already in line for it). If you aren’t the first to post your interest, just put yourself in line by commenting that you’re interested. It is not uncommon for items to go too far down the line for various reasons so don’t think it won’t happen if you aren’t first or second in line. You can also post ‘ISO’ ads, which stand for ‘in search of’, if you are looking for something you’d prefer to buy used instead of new and you’d be surprised how many people respond to those ads. Kristen Bishop, a Realtor at Compass Realty in Hanover, Massachusetts recently renovated her family room and was looking for unique ‘one of a kind’ pieces to finish the “My Captain” by Dave Pelbam, posing at a local beach space. She came across an old painting of a ship’s captain for sale on a local Facebook yard sale for forty dollars and posted her interest third in line. She waited over a week “in line” while she did a little research on this little known artist name Dave Pelbam. It turns out that Dave Pelbam was born in Rhode Island in 1932 and painted in the 1960’s and 1970’s mostly. His favorite subject was always the same white haired man, rumored to be Dave himself or that of his father, dressed as either a ship captain, dockworker or a rabbi. Pelbam’s paintings range in value from $100-1000 and have been featured Kristen Bishop, in homes in publications such as Country Living, Better Homes and Gardens and Traditional Home. Realtor, There are conflicting stories about this artist, but regardless of the dollar value of the oil painting, Savvy Decorator Kristen says “My Captain” is priceless as it is the one-of-a-kind piece she was hoping to find.

O ld Saybrook’s
is on the National Register of Historic Places due to its significant architecture,
especially the collection of shingled, sizable cottages originally constructed in the late 1800’s. The Connecticut River and Long Island Sound meet at Fenwick, but one might fancy themselves on Canadian waters; perhaps Prince Edward Island where Anne of Green Gables galloped through lush, sea-greened meadows beneath a sheltering lighthouse. Fenwick is a precious treasure that is a photographer’s paradise, a history buff’s treat, an athlete’s playground and home to a few fortuitous individuals (most notably, the late Kate Hepburn).
Lynde Point Lighthouse (the “Inner Light”) was constructed in 1803 by Abisha Woodward for a hefty sum of $2,200. It signaled the entrance to the Connecticut River.
he Causeway across South Cove to Fenwick Borough is so picturesque. Usually fishermen, fisherwomen and fisherkids line the
bridge with their poles and bait buckets while bicyclists weave by and motorists poke along enjoying the scenery. Enter Fenwick via Nibang Avenue where the unique aura of this special enclave begins. First, the “non-yacht club” Fenwick Island Yacht Club is only discernible by an unassuming sign and a prime spot on South Cove with immediate access to the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. Katharine Hepburn’s former estate looms on the horizon in a glorious fashion fitting for such an American icon. Snake along the avenue and enjoy the historic shingled cottages adorned with flowers and birdhouses. 66 structures are listed on the Historic Registry. Design and appeal of new construction must adhere to strict regulations so there is little chance Fenwick Borough will ever change much.
enwickâ€™s terrain consists of 195 acres of ponds, inlets, fields, and beaches. In addition to the yacht club, there are tennis courts, a golf course and a playground. A walkway along Long Island Sound runs parallel to Pettipaug Ave. View the cottages from the waterside that line the avenue with their elaborate roof lines, intricate windows and rocking chair porches where memories are made and recollected. Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse (Outer Lighthouse) is visible here. It was one of the first cylindrical cast-iron lighthouses built by a Boston Company. Its light first shone in 1886 and is the one seen on CT license plates. Fenwick is a small area with gigantic allure.
Superior quality home with recent addition & wonderful updates. The almost 6000 sq. ft. home has gracious rooms and the addition, perfect for in-law or au-pair use, has a private entry. The residence has beautiful detail moldings, 5/6 bedrooms, 4 full & 2 half baths, a finished room with superior appointments in the walk-out basement and a 50 yr. roof.
