*** This sale will start on Friday and run through Sunday ***
We are holding a wonderful sale of quality vintage items, specializing in 1940s-1960s at a single-family home. The sale will be held in the heated and finished 2.5 car garage and the breezeway of the home. We have been working hard to curate interesting items for months in order to present them to you in this lovely setting. These are NOT leftovers from our estate sales or former retail store but all "new" estate items! The owners of the items were not able to have estate sales in their homes because of association rules or they did not have a entire household of items to sell. Just two of the estates represented are located in Highland Park and Mount Prospect.
The highlight of the sale will be hundreds of fabulous pieces of statement sterling silver and costume jewelry including an amazing collection of vintage Native American pieces. Styles range from bohemian to bling and you will not find a better jewelry selection anywhere! Also, we are liquidating items for several people who have retired including liquidation of items from a jewelry-making business, handcrafted items using vintage embellishments and store display items.
