Last day is half price day!! Come early for best selection. Nothing held back, it's all gotta go. Saturday, May 20th at 8:00 am. There are some really nice things left for sure. This is a large house. Most of the beautiful rattan furniture remains including the two gorgeous dining/game tables, sofa & chair and recliner. These are sweet and now a steal.
There are other furniture pieces including the china cabinet, rocker, sofa bed, and more. Tables of decorative and household items remain and lots of art of different kinds. Even the custom jewelry is half price.
Not all of the items listed below are still for sale as they have been sold. The list and photos remain for reference for what remains.
Once in a while, some real quality collectible furniture pieces appear. We have a large home that that the family lived in for a long time and is full of quality items mostly purchased in the 50's and 60's. They obviously had good taste and purchased quality items that have been well cared for.
A partial listing will follow with photos (to be updated right up to the sale date). BUT FIRST - THE BEST - we will be taking sealed bids for the following four items with bids to be opened Saturday May 20th at 1:00 pm. If you collect mid-century modern, don't miss these. You may not see them again.
It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 2156.
