We will still be conducting estate sales as usual. Everything will be 50% off except for a few final price items. Our starting prices at the store have always been the same as at our estate sales so this is the opportunity to purchase wonderful items at a great value. We are still receiving new items daily so now until closing there will be fresh merchandise.

There is a great mix of beautiful vintage furniture and home decor including pottery, glassware, silver plate, brass and wood. In addition, tons of fabulous vintage costume jewelry and handcrafted jewelry made with antique and vintage components. We are also selling display cases and other props, tons of assorted jewelry displays, vintage beads for jewelry-making and other projects and craft supplies such as silk floral and quality ribbons.
