Treasure Trove in Lake Terrace! This mid-century home didn't flood in Katrina and the lady never threw anything away. She has now passed away and the only heir has taken very little. House is going on the market and ALL must be sold! This promises to be the biggest sale we've done so far this year, so we're making it a 3-Day event!!!
Dealers and Collectors - Don't Miss this one! Numbers will be given out on the first day of the sale, starting at 5:00 a.m. Everyone must have a number for entry. The house is so packed we won't be able to let everyone in at the same time - only first 25 guaranteed entry at 8:00 a.m. We will let in others when we feel they can be accommodated safely.
Sterling and Jewelry is being secured OFF PREMISES until sale date.
