Sale Description

This beautiful home in the Montlake neighborhood was home to a longtime Seattle resident. The estate includes over 50 years of accumulation! The lady who formerly lived in this house was quite the "jet setter", traveling and living all over the world. She is a Northwesterner (most of her 91 years), but lived in Africa for nearly twenty years. Her love of Africa is evident throughout the house. One main passion of hers was quilting & crafting. There is a hoard of fabric and many hand-made objects that are skillfully executed. There are many beautiful objects and collections of like items that are all to be sold. 

The sale will begin promptly at 8 am both Saturday & Sunday. Please come and join us for a very fun estate sale and what is guaranteed to be a very busy 2-day event in the heart of Montlake.

We accept all major credit cards & personal checks with photo identification. There will be an "offer list" used to help sell some of the bigger ticket items. If one chooses to make an offer and leaves good contact info, they may receive notice on Sunday that their offer has been accepted, unless the item sells of course.  

Please remember on Sunday the price of ALL items will be marked down 50% 

There is so much here and EVERYTHING MUST GO. 

***Please note that Sales Tax will be charged unless a valid reseller's number is presented.
