We promise that this sale is one of the best we have presented you with in 20 years. Some of you may remember a sale we did in 1999 in Tacoma Hills. Most of you were in line all day long and we bought you pizza for lunch. The house was ALL antiques and wonderful.
Well, here it is again. We are bringing an estate from Weidman, Michigan. This is a 70 year collection from a world traveler, an artist, her mother and grandmother. It resides in a 5,000 square foot house on a lake with no parking and little access by road. The walkout basement is wall to wall shelving units holding a tremendous collection.
The living quarters hold her most precious items, such as the original Utrillo, painted while she watched in Paris, her jewelry, Majolica, Asian Art, pre-Columbian relics, pre WW II relics, Sterling, ephemera, her weaving, furniture and her own art that she studied all her life.
There is a marble collection, a political button collection, stamps, arrowheads, pattern glass, clocks, apothecary jars, tins, childrens sewing machines, inkwells, candy containers, China, vintage clothes, hats, flower frogs, and I could go on and on.
We have only worked there one day and have made only a dent in this collection. We plan to bring you a GALLERY FULL of fabulous items that have not seen the light of day for many, many years.
Be sure to attend the first of 2 fabulous sales at the Gallery in April and May.
