stuff to take from parents house before an estate sale
The things I have been really grateful for from my grandmother's homes have been sewing things - old patterns, a long ruler, a packet of pattern tracing paper, crochet hooks - and some kitchen things - baking trays/tins, hand beater, tablespoons, pudding basins. The quality is so much better and I love the history and I know they would both love to know that I am using their things.
Oh, also my mum has a drawer with some if my grandmother's old jewellery (not the precious/sentimental pieces) which my daughters love to play with. Also hats, scarves etc make great dress-up pieces if your kids are still young enough for that sort of thing.
