RAIN OR SHINE! WE WILL BE OPEN! :-)
This week's sale in Silver Lake is in an awesome mid-century home in the hills of Silver Lake. This sale contains an incredible assortment of Mid-Century Art, Furnishings, and Accessories along with many interesting "Man-Tiques," Collectibles, Books, Records, and More! This is not a sale to miss!
This sensational home was originally built and occupied by a fun loving couple in 1954 for their entire lives. They traveled all over the world and greatly enjoyed Mid-Century art and collected many interesting pieces over the decades. The house is decidedly modern but there was a lot of stuff in storage which was brought up from below so literally all periods are represented! There are items here to appeal to everyone! Whether you are into Mid-Century or Industrial or Vintage in general!
It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 2166.
Being in the Silver Lake Hills - Parking is going to be tight as the home is at the end of a narrow cul-de-sac - a big hint - park on Ivanhoe and walk down the less than 1/2 block to the house. The other caveat is the home sits below the street with stairs and a steep driveway leading down to the property - this will be a bit of a challenge for those with mobility issues!
