This darling couple have moved their sweet selves to the land of “let someone else mow the lawn and someone serve me dinner, please” at a beautiful Retirement Community.  They left behind:

A super-excellent condition rattan set incl a dining table/6 chairs/pads – 2 chairs/ottos – 3 cush couch – 2 ends – coffee table, 2 charrrming twin caned headboards, a Dixie 4 drawer chest of drawers, a larrrge/heavy King bed and matching wardrobe, 2 solid wood decorative floor shelf units, 2 caned-side club/barrel chairs …

3 pcs of Van Briggle, a large McCoy planter, bags of sewing notions-some material and other sewing what-nots, needlepointed chair seats, LOTS of board games and misc toys, set of Top Flight golf clubs and several other clubs, new Mizuno soft-side golf bag, some boxedgolf balls, golf ball display case …

2 glass punch bowls ~ one LARGE with platter/ladle/cups, nice linens and bedding, 2 twin mattress sets, vintage wood/leather seat office chair on wheels, 3 character base lamps (soldier, woman/child and a timely, precious Barbershop Quartet!), adjustable work table, 2 solid wood hutches …

4 pairs of sterling (weighted) candlesticks & a bit of other sterling, a WWII refinished helmet, 6 pcs of paper (’42-’43) war propaganda (guest purchased them from us 2 yrs ago is selling), pair of crystal-drop candlesticks, several pcs of nice cut glass, elegant glass, Haviland, MZ china …

a few Longabergers (baskets, plate and crock), cookbooks, fullll kitchen/small appliances, 3 swivel wood barstools, lotsa nice tablecloths, and a pretty decent amount of vintage Christmas pretties that will send you back to the ’70’s faster than hearing (and singing along to) “Build Me Up, Buttercup” on the Oldies station 🙂

Oh, and we have the key to the snowblower that was purchased at the Mission Hills sale … so a holler-out to our Poulan Pal:  we gotcher key 🙂

** note to (your) self … pleeeez do not pull off the masking tape price tag on an item as it just gets way to confusing and makes us want to start drinking at noon.  OK not really, but it creates a high level of frustration for all involved and makes Sue want to charge double.  Eww.  Let’s all work on keeping prices down and Sue’s job satisfaction high.  You should ONLY pull a ticket off if it is paper ~ then ask us for a Blue ‘sold’ ticket.  Ahh, I feel better 🙂

Am writing this on Halloween, so best get a crackin’ and get my bowla goodies ready for the little ghosts and princesses ~ as well as those rascally teens who still make the rounds.  Ya never outgrow the joy of free candy!

See ya’ll Monday, buttercup ~

Nancy ~
    and the Prettiest of ALL Princesses,
          Tina, Paula, Sue, Diane, Carole and Shannon
