Lost furniture and textures after updating to paid version (Mac)

I've been running one of the free SourceForge version 6 installs of Sweet Home 3D on my Mac for a long time and finally upgraded to the paid version from the Mac App Store this evening; however, it looks like the new install sadly didn't transfer any of the extra furniture and textures that I'd collected over the past few years. . .

I searched the forum to see if there was a way to get it back and came across a couple of threads, but they're either out of date or don't relate to Mac:

Where are settings (textures, 3D models, etc.) saved on the Mac?

(This path doesn't exist on my Mac. I did a hard drive search even for "eTeks" and nothing at all came up. . .)

Lost Imported Furniture after installing Paid For version
http://www.sweethome3d.com/support/forum/viewthread_thread,9683

(This answer is only for the Windows versions.)

Can anyone tell me if there's a way to retrieve all of my former furniture/textures on a Mac running OS X High Sierra? What is the updated path to where all of the Sweet Home 3D files are stored on a Mac?

Re: Lost furniture and textures after updating to paid version (Mac)

I'm not sure that the search engine looks for files in half private folders like the ones in Library folder. That's the reason why I proposed to use Go > Go To Folder menu item in my answer to the thread Where are settings (textures, 3D models, etc.) saved on the Mac?
So, open a new window in the Finder, select Go > Go To Folder menu item (cmd + Shift + G shortcut) and enter the folder ~/Library/Application Support/eTeks/Sweet Home 3D (with the ~ leading character and the spaces in Application Support and Sweet Home 3D).
Open another window in the Finder, select Go > Go To Folder menu item and this time, enter the folder ~/Library/Containers/com.eteks.sweethome3d.SweetHome3D/Data/Library/Application Support/eTeks/Sweet Home 3D.
Finally, copy / paste the files found in the folder ~/Library/Application Support/eTeks/Sweet Home 3D into the folder ~/Library/Containers/com.eteks.sweethome3d.SweetHome3D/Data/Library/Application Support/eTeks/Sweet Home 3D.
