Viro Road, La Canada

Between Gould Ave. and Berkshire off 210 Fwy

This household has been the home of a wife and husband of a family of seven children for 60 years. Since 1955, a large family has grown up here, married from here and returned with their children, grandchildren and two great grandchildren. The Mom has moved into a senior home at 92, and continues to be a gal on the go!

The bittersweet move has left so much in this house that there is too much to donate. I said “No, let’s sell it”…an unusual accumulation of everything. This is a real fun hunt and pick sale; not like the majority of our sales, but a sale to explore. The volume is so great that the prices are reduced greatly. Lots of items great for re-selling or collecting!

Antique & vintage furniture, rugs, dozens and dozens of paintings and prints including Robert Engel & Pat Kennedy, thousands of smalls—Mexico & Catholic artifacts, tons of costume jewelry, Christmas, vanity items, kitchen, dishes, garden, garage—fishing, metal cabinets, workbench, wall shelves, tools, copper, books, pots, plants, tons of smalls, clocks, & misc. garage stuff.

Antiques – kitchen cabinet, 1880s bedroom bed, washstand & dresser, camel back travel trunk, bowl & pitcher sets, oil lanterns. Women’s clothes sz 10-12. Lamps, queen bed set & dresser, Asian & rustic armoire, patio tables, area rugs – Chinese, sculptured, shag, & runners, Chinese chest & side table, sofas, coffee tables, more side tables, maple king headboard, 4’ x 5’ Flodor Pin-Up Girl ad framed, bark writing desk & chair, bookcases, dolls, 70’s oak shelving, bar-ware, tiki bar stools, & much more!

Here are the final pictures. Hope to see you at the sale.

I will leave these teasers. Its too late to pick out the doubles.
