Terms

We accept cash, credit & debit cards, as payment, with a 3% credit card fee - nothing's free, someone has to pay for those skymiles! We have a few boxes available, but if you feel moved to do so, please bring boxes and packing material - you'll need them! Please make an effort to bring your own muscle (pool boy) to load heavy furniture.

Welcome back! We've been recuperating from Clarkston (loooong story) and have moved on up to the East Side  - yep, Dunwoody. 

I'll post plenty o' tasty pics for your perusing pleasure, but we have to do a final buff and spit polish with proprietary liquids before uploading said pics.

OK, thanks for your patience. Pics have been uploaded and captioned with truthful, snarky descriptions, rather atypical of other estate sale companies. If you've attended any of our previous sales, hopefully you noticed that our sales tend to be very clean, neat, orderly and organized, staffed with helpful, friendly people who enjoy their jobs. 

We have implemented a system that barcodes every item in the house, so that check out is quick and thorough. We provide a printed receipt with every item clear and present. We LOVE what we do and most of our customers. That said, please realize that we don't tolerate theft of any kind at our sales. During one of our recent sales, we had a gentleman purchase a very nice piece of art. After two weeks, he denied the charges.

Because of this incident, we have now installed two cameras at our checkout to photograph every transaction. If you want to steal from estate sales, please realize that you need to visit another sale other than ours. We will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law, no questions. Get it? Got it? GOOD!
I feel much better now, thanks.

This house shows beautifully and is rather full of goodies. As you enter the front door, the living room is to the right, the den is to the left. The living room has a pair of custom upholstered club chairs with matching ottomans, a Drexel sofa, a pair of Bohemian lamps, a porcelain Asian lamp, a vintage metal and mahogany floor lamp, a mahogany drop-leaf table, a mid-century Frenchy beveled glass & cane coffee table, a pair of beautiful French Rococo brass and steel andirons, a mantle with a collection of Staffordshire dogs, porcelain figurines and blue/white porcelain, a pair of nicely detailed wall sconces with Asian jars and plates; another pair of antique handsome English brass wall sconces flank an original still life floral oil painting. Best of all, the living room features a jewel-tone Persian rug that sets the tone for the entire room.

As you proceed forward into the dining room, you'll find an even better example of Persian rug beauty.  There's a very heavy beveled glass topped dining room table with four hand carved mahogany chairs, plenty of silver-plated holloware, a complete tea service, crystal candlesticks, mahogany game table, hand made mahognay end table, with one drawer and inlay, gorgeous Hekman sideboard, antique French gilded mirror, an original oil painting signed by the Gainesville, GA artist, a newer, oval gilded mirror, with over the top goo gaw all over it, three needlepointed interpretations of European oil paintings, framed in very nicely detailed antique mahogany frames.

As you proceed to the kitchen and breakfast room, you'll find plenty of china, silver-plated holloware, crystal stemware, glassware, kitchen appliances, a few pots and pans, artwork, silk flowers, window treatments, a nice kilim, a basket full of vintage linens, a "Blackberry Road" table by Charleston Forge (Boone, NC) & 4 chairs, another dining suite at the opposite end of the room features a matching, French country table & 6 chairs, buffet and hutch. The hutch is about to fall over from all the "old lady" collectibles.  

If you turn right, before the French country suite, you'll see a laundry room on your right with an older set of Maytag washer and dryer. Continue forward into the main floor master bedroom and you'll find a king size Select Comfort bed with French cane headboard, a mahogany 4-drawer bedside table, two large brass lamps, another painted bedside table with cool wrought iron base, Henredon chest of drawers, large Asian mirror, framed artwork and one of the best items in the entire house: a hand-carved, antique French triple mirror dressing table, with marble top - it's really gorgeous.

Continue forward and you enter the cheery sunroom, which is a wonderland of wicker. There is a planter and two tables, a pair of white painted rocking chairs, an indoor/outdoor rug, two large silk trees with tiny white lights, artwork and wall jewelry.

Turn to your right and you go outside to the garage, or turn to your left and you enter the den. The den has a pastel colored Chinese rug, a leather La-Z-Boy recliner, an overstuffed armchair, a tapestry wingback chair and a 1940's clamshell backed chair, several bookshelves with very good books, a Bose sound system, several pieces of art on the walls, a green upholstered sofa, made in MS, a large pine coffee table with three storage drawers, fireplace with screen and brass tools and a set of three Italian Florentine nesting tables. 

Proceed up the stairs and you'll find three bedrooms, each fully outfitted with typical 1980's taste level furnishings.
The master suite has a ungodly cache of mid-century Danish teak furnishings. If you're a fan of Arne Vodder furniture, by Sibast Furniture company, then you're in luck. There is a floating desk, coffee table, sideboard, set of 8, tilt-back chairs with original upholstery, a convertible end table/magazine rack, nesting tables, curio cabinet with two sliding glass doors and three adjustable shelves, sofa table with tile inserts, lazy susan, and a period bowling pin lamp. Take a peek at the pictures for a visual. I don't think you'll find a better collection of this furniture outside of a specialized retail showroom. 

Downstairs has two large rooms, a small kitchen and a Christmas room. One of the rooms has a Heyward-Wakefield Formica-topped kitchen table with six chairs, artwork, rug, office equipment, etc. 

The other room has a nice Chinese rug, a pair of very large leather armchairs w/matching ottomans, a wonderful mid-century wall mounted lamp, a pine entertainment center, vintage folding card table & 4 chairs and assorted basement things.

The garage has tables with smaller items, a few tools, garden doo dads, leaves, dead roaches, a 1970's electric organ, an Early American maple hutch, etc. It's an eclectic mish-mash of things, but we had to place them somewhere.

All of the window treatments on the house were custom made and are for sale. The new owner has a bit of updating to do and we were asked to let the window treatments go.

This is the hutch from a dining set that includes table w/leaf, six chairs and buffet, all tarted up in a "French Country" style. The hutch is about to fall over with a mish-mash of smalls that must be seen to be believed. This is the buffet of the "French Country" theme-park dining suite. Note Greek Key detail on the pitcher and bowl. Typical Greek pottery decoration is men playing leapfrog. The best way to separate the men from the boys in Greece is with a crowbar. Here's the table that completes the "French Country" Holy Trilogy. Who knew you could mix French Country with an Imari-style lazy susan. It set of fireworks of interior design ideology, but works in strange and mysterious ways. Look at the legs on that table! Inspired by Betty Grable?Oh Lord! you'll never believe the company that manufactured this table and chairs - HEYWARD-WAKEFIELD! Who ever thought that Americans in the 70's would flock to furniture showrooms to load up their Ford Country Squires and drag home this dreck?

Two side table inspired by tongue depressors.Oh, and what 1960's home was complete without the Mighty Magnovox Astro-Sonic (not kidding) Mediterranean-style entertainment center, with Micromatic Record Player?
