Sale Description

WOW! Thanks to everyone who has come to shop in Playa Del Rey!  But now...we have to get this home empty!  Amazing antique furniture---art, glass, pewter, and more - SUNDAY - ITS ALL 75% OFF! 

This week Again L.A. has a fantastic estate sale in Playa Del Rey! We will be open Thursday through Sunday, April 20th-23rd from 10am - 4pm Daily! This is the estate of an absolutely amazing Los Angeles couple - the Commodore and his lovely wife Frances!

The Commodore and Frances were life-long Angelenos! Both were brought to our great city at the age of 3 by parents establishing a new life! They were both UCLA grads - The Commodore in 1938 and Frances in 1941. Our Gent became a Naval Officer during WWII - which reinforced his life long love of the sea. Frances became a Film, Stage and Television Actress. After the war - He established himself as a successful attorney and always made time for the sea and his love of sailing and even with her acting career, Frances was an active wife and mother to their three daughters. After retiring from film in the 60s she maintained her busy schedule becoming an active swimming instructor, fencer, and roller-skater (which she continued into her 70s)! Both were long time members of the Del Rey Yacht Club where our Gent served as Commodore - along with his duties as Commodore of the Southern California Yachting Association as well...and eventually as an Advisor to the America's Cup Team! Frances loved social engagements and entertaining - and kept the couple's calendar busy and somehow found time for her hobbies which included enamel work, needlepoint and knitting. The Commodore was also an artist known for his geometric drawings and love of show tunes, pun humor, and an affinity for both pickled herring and desserts of every sort! Frances, always politically active, was a very outspoken progressive Democrat and was involved in politics from a local to a national level her entire life with her husband always at her side! This incredible vivacious couple was momentarily parted with the loss of Frances in 2011 and in earlier this year the Commodore joined her in blazing a new adventure!

The family of the Commodore and Frances invite you to share in the treasures their parents have accumulated over their lifetimes! Join us this weekend in Playa Del Rey!
