SHAWNEE MISSION LA SERTOMA ESTATE SALE--Dec. 6 - 9. THIS SALE IS VINTAGE, VINTAGE, VINTAGE! And also FREE vintage THEATER IN THE PARK COOKBOOK TO THE FIRST 7,004 PURCHASES OVER $10! Seriously--we have several boxes of old cookbooks with old LaSertoma recipes in them and we're giving them away for purchases over $10--your hard-to-buy-for dilemma SOLVED! And believe you me, the LaSertoma recipe for Luncheon Salad is worth more that $10. (You know, that just gave me the idea to make a batch of that salad to let our shoppers taste-test. Memo to self: Buy tomato soup, lemon jello, cucumber....) This is a really neat, huge old house, built in the 19-teens and it's a lovely house. It's the estate of a long-time LaSertoma member, a great lady who had wonderful taste (it is NOT her recipe for Luncheon Salad.) You will enter through the BACK DOOR and what you'll find there includes:
FAMILY ROOM: (As you enter the back door) Vintage toys and books; vintage aprons; white paintable china, dishes, glassware, salt and pepper shakers; knick-knacks and sitarounds; books; glass serving pieces, some depressionware and a few pieces of ruby glass; pictures, sofa and chairs, lamps, side tables; set of painted china dishes;
