As a postscript to notification of this estate sale…
We started with an empty house. The entire home had been staged with newer items by the realtor to help sell the home. Just this Monday, November 28th and Tuesday, November 29th, our valiant crew of movers went into the 2000 square foot garage to move all the furniture upstairs to the 1st and 2nd floors! Wednesday and Thursday we moved decorative accessories, paintings, bronzes and bronze clocks, Christmas items, etc., from the five treasure rooms attached to the garage. Today, we continue to move items upstairs, display and hang pictures and paintings. Tonight you will see some pictures to show you the magnificence of this estate. Next week, we will have final pictures, hopefully by Wednesday night.
Friday May 14th & Saturday May 15th 8am-5 pm. Sunday May 16th 10am-5pm.
