We are holding a wonderful sale of quality antique to vintage to newer items at a single-family home. The sale will be held in the climate-controlled and finished 2.5 car garage, breezeway and front patio of the home. Our specialty is unique items from the 1940s-1960s. In addition, we will be conducting a sale later this year at a home in Des Plaines which is so loaded there is no room to move. We have picked up great home and garden accessories, small furniture pieces and framed art from this location to share with you here. The items were shipped here from her former residence, a 20,000 square foot castle in Scotland. As items sell, we will bring more items in!
Another highlight of the sale will be hundreds of fabulous pieces of statement sterling silver and costume jewelry including an amazing collection of vintage Mexican pieces, many from the 1940s-1960s. Styles range from bohemian to bling and you will not find a better jewelry selection anywhere! Also, we are liquidating items from a jewelry-making business, handcrafted items using vintage embellishments and store display items.
