Updated Pics and Deets for July 18 West Edmond One-Day Downsize

thanks-to-the-great-estates-beautiful-downsize-sale-im-going-to-completely-redecorate-the-house-hold-me-4f508And, WOW! You COULD redecorate your house with the many beautiful items at this downsize sale in West Edmond on July 18!!

Here are the UPDATED deets (that’s the hip way of saying ‘details’. We’re nothing if not hip around here).

When:  Saturday, July 18   8:00-12:00/12:30-5:00

Where: 2705 NW 153rd St, OKC, OK 73013 (This is a gated community. Gate will open at 7:30. NO TAILGATING. Numbers will be given out at 7:30.)

Now, one-day sales are run a bit differently, as many of you know. For those of you new to a one-day sale, I’ll get you up to speed. We will open for full-price pricing from 8:00-12:00. We will then close at 12:00, shoo everyone out (politely, of course), get our ducks in a row, then reopen from 12:30-5:00 for half-price pricing.

This is a gated community so we are only allowed one day to sell all the wonderful items in this beautiful home. You really don’t want to miss this one. I know I say that all the time, but I really, super, extra mean it this time.

But enough admin, let’s get to the pictures, right?

Nearly all the furniture is in like-new condition.

Tucked into that corner is a great set of Dansk dishes.

And by civilized I mean let’s pull out the good china and fancy stemware and have some people over. To help facilitate this, we have a beautiful collection of crystal, silver plate, decorative glass, stemware, and serving pieces.

The pink and green stems are from Prague and the green stems are from Italy.

Yep, the Cardinals were busting on you-know-who.
