Description of sale: This home has been such a joy to work in! The view of Puget Sound is amazing and the beach is less than a mile to the west. Before the neighboring trees grew tall and more and more houses were built, there was a clear view of the Space Needle! Watching the cruise ships, ferries and countless sailboats and cruisers come and go certainly is a distraction! We’re still hoping to see some whales while we’re enjoying our visit here...

The owners grew up in occupied Norway during World War II. They actually came from two different areas in Norway and didn't know each other until they came to the United States. He was from a farm in the southern part of Norway; she was from the mountains in the western part of Norway. She actually grew up in the hotel where some of the Norwegian army stayed. Later in the war, the Nazis occupied the hotel.

After the war, they came to the United States. (After so many years of occupation it took Norway quite a long time to get back on her feet.) He had some family in Washington and she knew people in Seattle. They actually met at a dance – dances were held quite often at the Norway Center for a fairly large Norwegian population. Although she planned to be in the United States only for a year or so and then return to Norway... things changed! They married in Seattle in 1954. Since traveling to other countries wasn’t as common as it is today and because it was so expensive, her mother was not able to attend her wedding (her father passed when she was only 5). The first time he ever met his wife’s mother was after their 3 children were born, during a family trip to Norway in 1965. A 60 year anniversary was celebrated last year!

The home (nearly 4,000 square feet) was built in 1968. Every weekend he would help his father (who was the contractor) work on building the house. Children joined in as well, choosing the carpeting and ceiling fixtures, AND selecting the desktop Formica for the built-in desks for their bedrooms! The children, all adults with their own families now, talk about what it was like growing up in this wonderful neighborhood... lots of other kids, late summer evenings playing kick-the-can from house to house until the final call from their parents to come in for dinner. Wonderful memories!

SISTERS ANTIQUES ESTATE SALE / SAMMAMISH (Part 1)

Sale has ended

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: Cash only; no checks. If service is available, we will accept credit/debit for sales over $100 (there is a 3% fee). There is no excess cash on premises; till is emptied regularly. All valuables are removed from the sale nightly. Sales tax will be charged; dealers must provide a resale certificate at time of purchase – NO exceptions!

No refunds or returns. Be sure of your purchase before you pay - all sales are final! As with most sales, if you put it in your box or pile - you are buying it! If you tag it 'sold', it is yours. If you pay for it, you own it. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

Any sign-up list is to be self-managed. A limited number of people will be allowed into the home at intervals to ensure shopping is as safe and uninterrupted as possible. The amount of people entering the sale is totally dependent upon the size of the house and accessibility within.

* A note about the sign-up list: Please understand I have no control over who is first in line; I only control how many people will be allowed in at any given time. At some point prior to the sale and after the address is published, I will put out a clipboard with a sign-up list on my letterhead. This is done to avoid lists of others being pulled by less-than-honest people who then start a new list with their name first. If a person chooses to be on the premises before the official list is provided, it is up to that person(s) to know placement in line and add their name to the official list. Again – the list is self-managed by the buyers, not me!

Bring your own bags, boxes, packing materials and muscle. Our staff is needed inside the house and is not available for loading. Many items in the sale have been sorted into bins and crates; these are NOT included with the purchased items. All items must be removed by the end of the last day of sale. Display pieces must be paid for at the time of sale, but may not be picked up until the final day of the sale or a mutually agreed-upon time if they are being used for displaying goods. Not responsible for accidents or injuries.

Please leave jackets, large purses/carry-on type bags, backpacks, etc., at home! We will NOT allow anyone to bring these into the sale.

DESCRIPTION OF SALE: We began working on this estate in May and held the first sale in August. Our contract stipulated that we would hold 2 sales, each for 3 consecutive days, 2 months apart. We probably unpacked, cleaned, displayed, photographed, and priced a little more than half of the estate for the first sale.

The collecting story: He said that as a little boy his pockets were always full of something he thought important enough to save. After he married, he and his wife returned to the home of his parents and he found some of his books that his mother had rescued from his nephews. With about a dozen of the original books from his childhood, his Big Little Book collection began.

As an adult, he started collecting Flag Cancels, usually found on old post cards. He later became interested in the other side of old post cards. Another time, he was told of a collector that had just died and whose wife wanted to sell his post card collection. He corresponded with her for several months and she sent him samples of the cards. After traveling back to see the collection, he bought about 250,000 post cards. He sorted and worked the post card collection pretty extensively. He joined the Portland post card club and later helped start the Seattle post card club.

He decided he liked old paper items and started collecting newspapers and magazines. He was interested in old comics and anything related to comic character items and looked for those items wherever he could find them. He advertised locally as well as using the Antique Trader newspaper for ads.

An interesting story about his resources: He was reading a 20 year old Antique Trader newspaper and found the ad of someone in Oklahoma advertising to buy Disney products. He wrote the collector, asking if he was still collecting or if he had anything to sell. About 2 months later he got a letter from a professor from a college in Ohio. He was the Disney collector. He still had the collection and it was for sale. After several correspondences he bought the collection. He immediately sold the “Walt Disney Comic and Stories” in the collection for the same price he paid for the whole collection and kept the rest of the collection for himself.

He once got a letter from a woman answering his ad for Big Little Books. She had about 7 books to sell him. One title was a Superman book for $28. He knew the Superman book was not a Big Little Book but he was interested and bought the books from her. It was a “Superman” #1 comic book in mint condition. This was in the early 1970’s. He was afraid the book would get ruined if he kept it because he had children who might accidentally damage the book. He sold it for a very good profit but not near the price it brought in later years. He did not have seller’s remorse; he felt he made a good profit and it was the thing to do at the time!

Through the years, he met many interesting people while collecting and selling. He thought collectors were made up of some of the better people around.

Among many other things, he collected post cards, Flag cancels, Ship cancels, newspapers, magazines, match covers, stamps, first day covers, Big Little Books, children’s books, comics, advertising items, pin-back buttons, games, toys, cast iron toys, tin litho windup toys, advertising mirrors, trays, Akro Agate, comic-related items, marbles. Every collection was large!

When he died his daughter wanted his favorite collection to keep for herself. She was told that he loved all his collections. The thing he loved most was because of the story that went with it. She chose his cast iron Toonerville Trolley car because of his story. Around 1975 he saw an ad in the Antique Trader magazine; someone was selling a cast iron Toonerville Trolley. He wrote the man asking for further details. The man wanted $1000.00 firm for his trolley and it had a crack in the top of it. That was a lot of money for a broken toy so he chose to pass on the deal. Several months later a collector friend called to tell him there was a new antique store in Kirkland that had a lot of toys, including a cast iron Toonerville Trolley. It was just before Christmas and he was still at work. His wife dashed over to Kirkland and bought the Toonerville Trolley and returned home. She told him of the friend’s call about the new store but neglected telling him about the Toonerville Trolley. Christmas morning he opened his present of the Toonerville Trolley. He said, “You didn’t!” She responded, “No, this one does not have a crack.” He loved that gift. To this day, she has never told anyone how much was paid for that toy.

SISTERS ANTIQUES ESTATE SALE / SAMMAMISH (Part 2)

Sale has ended

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: Cash only; no checks. If service is available, we will accept credit/debit for sales over $100 (there is a 3% fee). There is no excess cash on premises; till is emptied regularly. All valuables are removed from the sale nightly. Sales tax will be charged; dealers must provide a resale certificate at time of purchase – NO exceptions!

No refunds or returns. Be sure of your purchase before you pay - all sales are final! As with most sales, if you put it in your box or pile - you are buying it! If you tag it 'sold', it is yours. If you pay for it, you own it. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

Any sign-up list is to be self-managed. A limited number of people will be allowed into the home at intervals to ensure shopping is as safe and uninterrupted as possible. The amount of people entering the sale is totally dependent upon the size of the house and accessibility within.

Bring your own bags, boxes, packing materials and muscle. Our staff is needed inside the house and is not available for loading. Many items in the sale have been sorted into bins and crates; these are NOT included with the purchased items. All items must be removed by the end of the last day of sale. Display pieces must be paid for at the time of sale, but may not be picked up until the final day of the sale or a mutually agreed-upon time if they are being used for displaying goods. Not responsible for accidents or injuries.

Please leave jackets, large purses/carry-on type bags, backpacks, etc., at home! We will NOT allow anyone to bring these into the sale. (Don’t make me frisk you!)

HISTORY: Undoubtedly, this has been the most amazing estate sale experience I have ever had in my career. By the date of the sale, we will have put in three months photographing, unboxing and uncrating, unwrapping, sorting, displaying, arranging, rearranging, merchandising, researching, again photographing, and pricing the most wonderful fifty-year plus collection of treasures we have ever seen! In addition to rooms lined with floor-to-ceiling shelving, countless display fixtures, various sizes of tables throughout the rooms, and hundreds of crates for sorting, we brought in 12 6’ banquet tables, 6 4’ tables, numerous card tables, showcases, and seemingly tons of boxes to organize and exhibit everything!
