Our next sale will be a BIG ‘conglomeration’ of many estate sales that we have had stored for three years or more. Most of it is furniture, smalls, art and paper that no one has seen before. There will be bargains that you will not believe. All of it goes this time and it is priced to sell! we expect you to bargain with us. If you want it, we will get you out the door with it! We were waiting to sell much of it on the internet, and we have decided that it all should be sold to the public at a super sale instead. Let’s just say having a Second warehouse sale in 23 years will be more expedient for us. It will be exciting, to say the most, to see many different kinds of possessions from these homes and vocations:

He was one of the original two artists that were heading up Disney Imagineering along with Blaine Gibson (Personal novelty cards, sketches, maquettes & watercolors from Jack’s collection) Historex Napoleonic Wars 1791-1812 model sheets & Bios mimeographed ie.

-North Ranch past estate sale possessions.

It is a real opportunity to have fun, collect, buy items to use, give & find resale items to sell. I can say in our 23 years of selling goodies from people’s homes that this is an amazing antique, vintage and contemporary sale of treasures that you won’t believe. One of THE COSTUME JEWELRY clients go back 7 or 8 years from the household of a hoarder that had a condominium that had an 18″ corridor throughout her whole home.
