(Address will be given with appointment confirmation)

We have been preparing this amazing sale since April. The volume and variety of inventory in the historic home of Dexter and Christine Christenberry has been a stimulating challenge and honor to bring to the point of sale to the public August 22nd through 25th (and maybe 26th). You just won't believe what this house contains!!!...4 floors of acquisitions by 2 very interesting and long-standing members of the Knoxville community. (Note: There are a lot of stairs involved in this sale. This house is 107 years old with older window AC units...dress for warm conditions!)
