This is it folks! This is the sale you've waited all year for! This is every antique market, antique store, thrift store swap meet garage sale estate sale all rolled into one and it is finally here!!!
The owner of the house was an avid collector of just about all things vintage and unique. We've even had shop owners from the antique malls in the Orange Circle stop by to check on the house! It's hard to really describe in words the magnitude of things we have encountered in this house. When we first got here we weren't able to open doors, open windows, walk down hallways and definitely uncovered a lot of things that haven't been seen for many years. We've been working non-stop tirelessly at this sale for 9 days now in order to turn a huge beautiful mess into an organized beautiful estate sale just for you.
First of all, the things that are most prevalent in this sale are just the rarities. The hard-to-find items that are only found every-so-often in an antique mall and often with a $45 price tag (nowhere near our price) on them. The antique cast iron door knockers in the shape of birds or the antique ink jar holders. The little unicycle clowns that have those large sticks on either side of them so that they can balance on a tightrope. The large antique wash tub, antique pot holder, cast iron stove, antique mouse cage with the running wheel attached, the kewpie dolls and antique candle snuffers. Too many things to list in fact but a house completely full of small little rarities in every single corner. This is not a house that you will spend less than 30 minutes in at least.
Next, let's talk about bikes. BIKES! Tons of different kinds of bikes and not in the traditional sense either. Peddle cars, trikes, bikes built into horses, small one's big ones and ones we have never seen before in our lives. One of the most interesting is a hand-driven rocking horse with a chain the rides down the length of the horse's neck and powers two back wheels. All very old and very vintage kept in very nice condition. In addition to these wheeled machines was have a collection of baby carriages as well as an amazing antique buggy and a large collection of rocking horses; some with real horse hair and tail and some with real leather saddles.

Baby dolls, multi-ethnic art and figurines, American folk art, glass dolls, porcelain dolls, teddy bears, really old glass vintage dolls as so many more!
