Let’s start with the 1917 Steinway Piano. We are upon her 100 year birthday and she is in amazing condition. Complete local restoration done in recent years.
Needing another great car? 2012 VW Tiguan with 22k miles is another highlight of this sale. See below for pre-sell info on VW and Piano.
Our client is moving back to Australia and we are assisting her with this eclectic sale.
SIGN UP SHEET will be on the front door late afternoon (Thanksgiving) the day before the sale. We will let you inside based on the order you are on the list at initial opening of the sale. Limit 15 persons inside at any one time as the home is very small. Be back in line by 8:45am Friday morning. It is a great rule-of-thumb to take a picture of the sign-up sheet after you’ve signed it.
1917 Steinway Model M (5’7”) complete restoration and recently tuned.
Asking $20,000 or acceptable offer. Piano can be seen in advance by qualified buyer, by appointment only.
2012 Tiguan with 22k miles is a Pre-sell item only in the sense we will send you additional info if needed.

Client needs the car until she moves and we will finish the transaction at that time. The sale price of the car will be negotiated during the estate sale and all details worked out then.

Gold and Sterling Jewelry (we DO NOT SELL FOR SCRAP VALUE). Please do not ask for any discounts on gold or silver. I have an account with the smelters direct and it does not make sense to sell for less on my client’s behalf. If you come to the sale asking for any discounts you will be asked to leave. This has been a huge problem in the past with some buyers and I stopped offering any gold in my sales. If you are going to ask for a discount, do not come to my sales. It is a huge waste of both our time and energy.
And much more….
