Description of sale: Working on this sale has really been fun! I think we enjoy going through barns and sheds a lot more than dealing with what we so often find inside the home. Where else can you find SIX saddles along with all the related tack? And then… hundreds of tools specifically for plumbing, old sinks, a collection of ax and pick heads, vintage doors and windows, early appliances, radio and television tubes, shelf after shelf packed with everything imaginable … and the list goes on! We even spent a couple of days digging things up that had been partially swallowed by the land over many, many years.

As always, we asked for a bit of history on the estate and our client was kind enough to pen this for us:

“Welcome to our estate sale. This property was homesteaded somewhere around the turn of the century and spans three generations. Although the original house is gone, the horse pastures and orchard stand as reminders of days past. The family was into truck/tractor repair, construction and various other trades. As time progressed over the years, the original outbuildings on the property have degraded back into the earth. What remains are unique tools, car parts, and various porcelain remnants of the past.

I have fond memories of growing up next door as a little girl and visiting Great-Grandma and having her show me a small, round musical powder-puff container. I now share that same memento of my past with our own grand-children. During your visit, you will find unique items that typically range in date from the early 1900s to present – including several items from a 1940-50’s kitchen. As you look through our items I hope you can appreciate all the talented, loving and hard-working hands that have touched so many lives.”

PLEASE NOTE: This is a large property. Both addresses have been included because of navigation issues with GPS. The 850 house is RENTED and nothing is available. The 870 house has the contents of the estate sale along with the pole barns on the rear of the property. The sign-up list is at the front door, between the screen/glass door and the main door. Entry will be through the back door (front door is blocked from the inside).

(We suggest you bring a friend to ''guard'' your pile and help you load your purchases.  There's a lot of territory to cover and you don't want your treasures finding their way into someone else's stash!)

Please note: The photos will show a lot more items that have not been listed in the description.
