Our estate sale in St. Joseph is shaping up to be an amazing one! I've only been through the home for a few hours taking pictures so I've only seen the top layer, but from what I've discovered there will be TONS of fantastic treasures in this sale! The homeowner was a communications director at Whirlpool, so there are lots of vintage Whirlpool memorabilia pieces, as well as media photos, celebrity autographs, and personal calligraphy pieces (his hand written items were highly appreciated and sought after!) There will be everything from newer furnishings, decor and household items, to collectibles, antiques, unique items, lots of smalls, vintage furniture, and tools! This sale will be taking place in a classic ranch home with a full basement and an attached 1-stall garage, and it's all packed! Check out all the photos to see the wonderfully eclectic collection this sale holds!
