Up in Jester Estates that is.
So wow. What to say about this gigantic, enormously colossal, full-on, full-scale estate sale?
It’s big. Really big and packed with beautiful things that you need and want.
The lovely owners of this big house traveled extensively and accumulated a lovely, gracious assortment of items that are in pristine, clean condition and very beautiful and useful. There is so much here that to try and describe it in one short ad is a challenge.
There’s Royal Worchester china and Waterford Crystal and more china and teapots and more teapots and pitchers and glassware from every era, from Depression Glass to hippy Flower-Power glassware sets. It is all here. Stoneware and pottery and even more sets of dishes and glasses and silverware than you have probably seen in one place in a very long time. The big, bold crystal chandelier over the dining table can be yours too. It hangs over a fantastic dining table and chairs and china cabinet that is ready to go and be used for entertaining.
There are lovely shelving/desk combo units and cabinets and tables and consoles and beautiful lamps and mirrors and a green leather chair that is straight out of Masterpiece Theatre with Alistair Cooke. The sofa is wonderful as are the draperies and linens, linens, linens. It all goes. In the breakfast area, find a sweet circular table and perfect chairs. See the buffet! A gorrrrrrrgeous little Victorian settee is waiting patiently for you at the foot of the stairs. See the art. There is a lot of it. Pewter!
Rugs. Did I mention rugs? More than a dozen- from the Far East to the Far South. Hand-tied, tufted and cut pile, it’s all here. Many were purchased during travels abroad decades ago and never unrolled.
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3118.
The kitchen is a bakers/cook’s dream. Every conceivable gadget can be found with pots and pans and breadboxes and Fireking and Pyrex and cast iron. There is a lovely Boos chopping block and canisters and kitchen tools and baking supplies and mixing bowls and, and, and…. Books, we have hundreds of books in the library and a sweet desk and vases and pottery and more books and lamps.
The beautiful refrigerator is for sale as is the nice washer and dryer set and there is a nice deep freeze out in the garage. Speaking of the garage, holy cats, So. Much. Stuff. Browse tools and more tools and gardening supplies and electronics and more gardening supplies and room dividers and more rugs. YES! MORE RUGS! And everything you could possibly want including ice chests and coolers and bowling balls- two of them with shoes in their bags. Christmas! Holiday stuff! TONS! Pots and pottery and directors chairs and everything you can think of that should be in the garage is here, except the cars. The Mercedes is vacationing somewhere else.
Is there an upstairs? YES. Oh man. Is there! Find the office with a beautiful desk and credenza and manly stuff and a vintage PIPE collection containing examples that you do not see any more. Hand carved and gorgeous pipes are here, lovingly collected over many, many decades. Lamps and printers and computers. In the many bedrooms find a lovely assortment of sofas, floor lamps and a king-sized bed that is one of the nicest we’ve ever offered.
There is a wonderful chest on chest and a chiffarobe (have you ever read To Kill A Mockingbird?) and several loveseats and occasional chairs and tables and a cedar chest and a wrought iron day bed with trundle. Look, it’s a gentleman’s dresser and bed linens and comforters and bedspreads.
Then there is the clothing. Here are hundreds of pieces of incredible women's clothing and fashions and shoes and shoes and sweaters and more than three dozen purses and more shoes and belts and sweaters from Pendleton and every other major maker. The men’s clothing is nice too! Try on furs, including a fantastic full-length gorgeous Mink coat. This is a beautiful example. Winter is coming.
Outdoors, Adirondack chairs and a lovely, patio table and chairs complete the scene. Won’t you come and see for yourself? All this writing really does not do this sale full justice. It is something to see and you are sure to find things that will make you giddy.
The sale is Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 until 4 and Sunday, Oct. 23 from 11-4 ish.
This is off 360 at Lakewood Drive west bound.
Cash only is preferred, although we will have our Square Reader which, will, in theory, be working!
Per usual- No early birds! Park only where you know you should park. This neighborhood does not like bad parkers, no, not one little bit. And of course, this is all supposed to be fun, so Play Nice!
This one is not to be missed. Come and see me and let me show you this beautiful sale.
PS. The GPS is very useful in finding this sale. On some phones it identifies the last left turn as Pampas Cv.. The street sign actually reads High Hollow Drive. Turn left there and Moonflower is on your left. There will be signs too!
