Estate Sale Wrap: Better Shop AroundAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Bad weather may be putting a damper on estate sales this weekend, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something out there for the determined shopper. From Petaluma to San Leandro, deal mongers will find some interesting goods.
On Saturday and Sunday a barn-based estate sale in Petaluma sounds full of promise. The organizers promise that the event happens rain or shine, and claim that everything must go (markdowns at the end?). Two items that caught my eye: a very cool old railroad lantern (one of many that are promised) and a pretty armoire (both seen above).
I also noticed a grinding stone billed as a Native American artifact (price $600 or best offer). The tufted look is in at the moment, and there’s a nice 1970s-era red chair and ottoman up for sale.
The sale runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 237 Cleveland St., Petaluma.
In San Francisco, Quality First Estate Sales is staging an event at 337 Warren Dr. today through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m each day. Stop by for deals on costume jewelry, dining furniture and custom living room furniture. There’s also an array of dishware and china.
Across the bridge in San Leandro, there’s an estate sale whose listing is simple, but contains code words like interesting, eclectic and retro…in other words, worth checking out. Pair that with photos like the one of the old-school hair dryers below, and you have sufficient bait to lure shoppers who like the unusual.
The sale happens today from 3-5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 912 Estudillo Ave., San Leandro.
