This week we have a spectacular sale for you! This is the sale of a fun loving couple who were not only masters of collecting...they were downright hoarders about it! The amount of fun collectibles and antiques in this sale crosses so many collecting fields you will not believe it! Antique and Vintage Dolls to Primitives; Quilts to Die Cast; Trains to Fenton; Portmeirion to Enamelware; Vintage Chroma-Lithographs to Rock and Roll Photography; Metalwares to Costume Jewelry...and so on and so forth!

Don't miss this fantastic sale!  This is the long time home of native Angelenos Harve and Binnie - who after 60 odd years have moved on to assisted living and their three kids have had a helluva job sorting through the massive collections within their home! Harve was originally on track to follow in the family Dairy Business while studying at Pierce College but with marriage and a stint in the Army he decided a different path called. With an initial career in Pharmaceutical plastics...he quickly moved on as a member of the design team for Mattel where he not only worked on developing Hot Wheels for production...he even had a hand in the development of the new "Talking Barbie!" With the freedom of the 1960s - Harve's free spirit saw him growing his hair long...growing a beard and even getting his ear pierced and before long he found himself as a big ol weekend biker dude! He left the corporate life and opened Fred's Bikes and Hobbies in Woodland Hills which was a natural extension of his life long collecting! Binnie is the love of Harve's life...also an Angeleno native and just as much a free spirit! When other mom's all looked like Doris Day - Binnie quite unapologetically resembled a mix of Cher, Janis Joplin, and Grace Slick! An artistic spirit at heart she was equally adept at Fiber and Textile Arts, Tole/Design Painting, and Cooking - taking great joy in creating quilts, clothing, and foods for those she loved. Harve and Binnie were always a team - at each others side on whoever's adventure happened to come along and both loved always maintaining an open-door home to all. In the 70s they went into business with one of their daughters and son-in-laws aand opened Front Row Ticket Service serving LA and OC..and were among the pioneers of theRenaissancee Pleasure Fair and operated the Soup Booth for many years! Harve and Binnie and all of their kids and grandkids invite you to come share in their lifetime of collecting and hope it brings you as much joy as it has them!
