Fabulous Heart of Edmond Estate Sale!

imageWe have another great sale and this one is in the very heart of Edmond. For some reason, our most fun sales are on Halloween weekend. And this sale is great fun!

Where:

812 East Drive, Edmond

When:

Friday, October 31:  9-5          Saturday, November 1:  9-5          Sunday, November 2: 1-4

**Note: This sale is jam-packed and space is extremely limited. We will be handing out numbers by 8:30 and allowing a limited number into the estate until the crowd thins. We like the mad rush as much as the next guy but, chaos…not so much.

This estate has the quintessential mid-century Edmond vibe. If you’re from Edmond and your waxing nostalgic about “Back when…”, you won’t want to miss this sale.

Without further adieu, the pictures, with the occasional “Back when…” theme:

Let’s start with the kitchen.

Back when pans were stainless and had some weight.

And no kitchen is complete without some vintage kitschy linens.
imageAnd the dining room table is cool for a couple reasons. OK, three reasons. First, it’s just mid-century sweet looking.

The patina on this table is really nice. It has it's blemishes, but that just adds character.

Second, it’s got great gams. (That’s Hollywood lingo for ‘legs’.)

Now, before you dismiss this next chair hear me out. This is a 1960’s Kroehler Avant Designs chair. Still don’t care? Well, they are all the rage right now on Etsy, Houzz, and Cherish. Yep, they are kinda the “thing” for people in the retro know. And, well, we got one.

“You can reupholster me, if you dare.”

And, because those mid-century folks like to take care of their linens, we have a cedar armoire and several cedar hope chests.

By day it's an ordinary dresser. At night the top folds up and it's anything goes.

Embarrassing true confession: I neglected to get a better picture of this antique bed so you are getting the picture that shows the room pre-organized. Ignore the mess and feast your eyes on the foot board of that bed! Truly, the wood is beautiful and the craftsmanship is amazing. This picture does not do it justice.

And there is more furniture that I neglected to get pictures of: Mid-century Ethan Allen sleeper sofa, chairs, book cases…what can I say?

For you doll collectors we’ve got quite the selection. Here are just a few.

Daddy's Long Legs. This one is called "Junior".

The office is wall-to-wall books. Plus such office items as bundles of pens and highlighters (absolutely tons), file folders, file cabinets, shelves, plastic storage drawers, journals, and other office miscellany.  I’d love to show it to you, but this is another picture that was neglected.

I did manage to get a pic of all these stamps.
