                                             3-4 @ 25% off
TUESDAY  ………………….   8a – 1pm @ 50% off

A. Fun. Sale.  Yep.  Before we get to the watches, cameras and smoking pipes extravaganza, let’s run through the furniture:  an outSTANDing 7.5′ mid-century credenza (lovelove!), a large dining table with 6 caned-back chairs w/ oriental upholstered seats/3 leaves and pads, a refractory dining table and chairs, a 48″ round marble-top/iron base table, 3 leather parsons chairs, 3 white/cream poofy chairs, a large square all glass coffee table …

a niiice newer pillowtop full-size mattress set, several rust-ish-colored contemporary pcs – a 3 drawer chest/two cylinder end tables (store display?)/2 rectangular ends, about 20 pcs of outdoor wrought iron (round table/4 chairs, carts, 3 loungers, ends, loveseat, chairs-rockers, baker’s rack, lalala), a 70’s daybed/couch, a large mirror-front armoire, a newer elec GE dryer, an older Maytag washer …

And seriously?  Fifteen (underscored) new men’s watches (Stauer, Cascio, Swiss Army, Torgeon, Daniel Steiger, Wenger, Cabelas, Invicta) and beeteedubs, men’s watches look fabulous on women as well dontchaknow ~ also, have a great selection of over 20 smoking pipes and 3 pipe stands, some interesting pocket knives, a pair of sterling (weighted) 3-candle candelabras …

THENnnnn, we have cameras.  Believe the term we used was “motha-lode”.  20 or so (too pooped to count) from basic-basic to 35mm to digital to those snappy-sneaky wee-ones that surely, Shirley, were similar to those used by Inspector Clouseau and Dick Tracy, BOOKS and MORE books – new, really old and cool coffee table books, a new Borriss Rimfire Scope (with bonus scope), a HUGE 15×11 red center/blue edged (Jayhawk?) rug …

Three (new, just outta the box ordered from Joss & Main) pcs of Bassett: a larrrrge 2-tiered coffee table, a console table and a round end table, some fun vintage glassware including a fun Schweppes ice bin/matching 12-glass set, a large antique andiron set, 27″ Sony HDTV flatscreen, some stereo equipment, vintage Pyrex, lots of kitchen/serving pcs, and LOTS of home decor, CDs and DVDs and albums, 2 round wicker end tables, 2 trombones …

a King and Horton brand trombones (in cases!), a Schwinn High Plains bike, 2 wheelbarrows, benchgrinder, handtools, luggage, a Restoration Hardware black swirly (it’s my new word, obvi) fireplace screen, bookcases, 7-ish rugs, several upholstered benches, lots of (large) nice men’s clothing/belts/TIES/shoes (Cole Haan, Sperry, Bass),  a 120V air compressor, B/D trimmer, 3 new TWA travel bags (well, not new-new as we all know … I meant not used), and LOTS of framed artwork …

and the key to The City.  Which city has yet to be determined however comma it’s a really big key so must be a really BIG city.  Yep.

Please note that there is a family member living in the home so while the backyard has stuff in it, pleeeez do not go out back or window peek and freak them out ~ be patient and wait ’til 7:30 when the sale opens.  Thanks.  Pleeez do not park where the “No Parking” signs are … seems obvious, but obviously we need to mention it.  Thanks again.  Cash and checks (with approval on most stuff, though some items are cash only).  One more thing ~ we do NOT move furniture.  If we were able, we would be a moving company.  We’re not and don’t wanna be, so if you purchase something you can’t move, bring capable help or ask us for capable references.  Thaaanks 🙂  

And that is all she wrote.

       and the A Team that blesses me to the point of bursting (seriously.),
             Tina, Paula, Sue, Trish, Diane, Carole and Joyce 🙂
