Sale Description

Well it's finally happened...I've threatened this for years....I've hired myself to clean out my own 25+ years of accumulation.  As you can imagine, doing sales for other people all year, every year, leaves very little time to go through the amazing amount of "stuff" that I, and my family, have amassed over the years.  There's ordinary stuff, guy stuff, kid stuff, girl stuff, vintage stuff, antique stuff and just about when you think you've seen everything, there's a prosthetic leg.  Don't even go there! 

Prior to starting my estate sale company, I was an antique dealer for years specializing mostly in vintage clothing and jewelry, but with an eye for anything cool and unusual.  Always a collector, but now it would appear (or at least according to my kids) that the dreaded word "Hoarder" can now be attached to my moniker.   My husband and I have been sorting, piling and pricing for weeks now, and will be setting everything up this coming up week under the big tents, so be watching for a lot more pictures to be added.  

Oh, and because there's always room for more "stuff", our good friends Jeff & Marie brought over their huge white van, fondly named the Marshmellow, FULL OF STUFF!     In addition to their being serious collectors of all things cool, groovy and unique, Jeff is also a very accomplished wood worker, and has added to the sale some of his extraordinary artisan pieces.  (Check out the Hockey Town plaque)
