We are having a fantastic estate sale on Friday the 15th through Sunday the 17th.
This Spanish style house sits on five lots, has three detached garages, and was purchased in the 1960's along with the contents so this is really a Double Estate Sale. The prior owners owned a chain of restaurants in the area. Both the furniture and fixtures complement the Spanish motif. The owners after that also have their own interesting story. The gentleman was the former owner of a ski lodge and a marine store. The lady of the house was a Hollywood clothing designer and clothier for actress Dina Shore. We are excited to bring to you this eclectic, stylistic and varied sale!
It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 2145.
The address to the sale is 2415 Boyer Ave. E, 98112.
Head South across the University Bridge and take a left at the first light, Fuhrman road. (if you’re heading north on Eastlake Ave, take a right before the bridge. Fuhrman turns into Boyer. After you pass under the 520 bridge, the next intersection is Everett and Boyer. The sign up sheet will be on the front garage door. Parking the day of the sale is on Boyer Ave. only. Be prepared to walk up a steep hill to access the house.
This house is filled with an eclectic mixture of items. We have lots of furniture that reflect the style of the structure. There are cases of collectibles, vintage clothing, material, tons of kitchen items, china, rugs, art, jewelry, collectible bottles and jars, ephemera, mini printing press and a large array of everything. The Spanish style stucco house with tile roof will also be up for sale!
We are adding photos daily as we set-up, so check-in for updates.

CLOTHING: As mentioned above, the lady of the house dressed actress and singer Dinah Shore while she lived in Hollywood.
