Estate Architectural Salvage Sale – Los Angeles, CA- 4 Old Panel Vanss

Estate Sales by Sam and Pam will be conducting this architectural estate salvage sale in Los Angeles, CA Friday, Nov. 15- Sunday, Nov. 17.

Sam and Pam started by trying to help with a silent auction with their children in first grade. That was 20 years ago. They learned about the estate sale business through a friend who was in estate liquidations and with their love of helping people at their wits ends with parents downsizing or passing away their business began. They obtain their sales through referrals.

This building was originally a carpet store on the ground floor with three apartments on the second floor that were abandoned 40 years ago. The carpet store started in business in 1921. The owner grew up and lived in the upstairs apartments and kept acquiring furniture, fixtures, dishes and more until he abandoned the building for lack of room in the early 1970’s. A true hoarder. The owner of the store passed leaving a building filled with carpeting and rugs along with 4 Chevy panel vans dating from 1955 – 1966 in need of much restoration and the new owner is going to rehab the building creating retail space again with apartments on the second floor.

If you are creative or like to repurpose this sale is for you. Everything must be sold, a lot of dust and dirt so Sam and Pam advise you to wear gloves, also a very reasonably priced sale. Claw foot bath tubs, old lighting fixtures, cupboards, dishes to murphy beds, early 1900’s furniture to 1970. A architectural diggers delight.  Here is a link to this sale on EstateSales.Net
