We're nearing the end of our 2017 estate sale season, and we're going out with a fantastic bang!  Our estate sale coming up on Nov. 2-4, located on the westside of Kalamazoo, is going to be one to remember!  You'd never want to judge this "book" by its cover.  It looks like any other classic mid-century ranch in Kalamazoo.  However, inside you'll find the most wonderfully eclectic collection of antiques, collectibles, smalls, furniture, toys, electronics, vintage clothing, advertising, local historic pieces, and home goods that you'd ever hope to find!  The home features the main floor, full basement, two-stall attached garage, and a shed out back...and every square foot is packed!  There's also not much "filler"...every item has either a great practical or collectible value to it.  And with Christmas coming up soon, this would be the perfect sale to kick off a great holiday shopping season!  Mark your calendars for Thursday, Nov. 2 through Saturday, Nov. 4...and we'll see you all there!
