Description of sale: This is the estate of a lovely 90 year old woman who moved to the Seattle area fifteen years ago to be closer to her family. Born in 1924 in Portland, she grew up during the depression. Times were difficult economically for everyone then, but even tougher for her because she lost both her parents at a young age. She bounced from one foster home to another, orphanage to orphanage, and finally at the age of 14, ended up as a family helper for an amazing family who raised her as if she were their own daughter.

As soon as she was old enough she went to work at Meier and Frank in Women’s Wear. This is where she developed her skills in design and simplicity in style. She was such a “knock out” that she became a Jantzen swimsuit model and modeled for several department stores around Portland. It was at a USO dance where she met her husband. Soon after they married, they had their first of three children. By her own account, it was an amazing life! Simplicity in style and elegance in everyday living was their motto.

Buying furniture in the fifties was an all-day event. Both would dress up, her in her hat and white gloves, him sporting a cashmere coat and hat, and off they'd go. Buying quality was essential in those years. Most of their furniture was purchased in the 1950s from Guvertz or Directors, both of which were high-end stores in Portland. According to one of the daughters, “Mom was a fashion guru and dad was a furniture executive; they had amazing taste and their house always inspired a feeling of warmth and class! All the furniture offered holds such memories and all those memories are of happy family times.”

NOTE: Directions: The Issaquah Highlands area is VERY confusing if you aren’t from around these parts! I’d suggest you follow these directions instead of Mapquest or Google Maps.

Off I-90, take exit 18/Highlands Drive NE toward Sammamish (not downtown Issaquah). Heading north, turn right onto NE Federal Drive. This will become Park Drive NE. Continue to 15th Ave. NE and turn right. Turn left at 16th Ave. NE and NOT at Hawthorne. There is a sign that reads 1606 Ridge View Dr. (even though you are on 16th Ave. NE). There are 2 buildings, both 4-story; you’ll want the one on the left (south).

If there are no parking spots, continue to the next stop sign, turn left on NE Huckleberry Street and wind around to the left onto Ridge View Ave. NE. This side of the building is marked by a lion head fountain on the wall. You can park and walk up the steps to gain entry into the building (on the right).
