Description of sale: In the heart of Bellevue, long before strip malls, major department stores, and massive highrises, this family designed and built their forever home in 1957. Age and health issues are now forcing them to move into assisted living where they can receive the care necessary to keep them well.

Shortly after meeting at a USO dance, they married and began raising a family. Both spent many years in the field of education; he taught at Mercer Island High School and later became principal. In addition, he started the first alternative high school in the city. Retiring at 50, he continued in the Naval Reserve as a commissioned officer.

Both shared a love of gardening; he bred Rhododendrons, traveling as far as China to collect seeds. He was active in various Rhododendron organizations, a member of the Cascade Rhododendron Society and past president of the American Rhododendron Society. He later became interested in native plants and was an active member in the Washington Native Plant Society. He operated a wholesale plant business on the property for thirty years.

She enjoyed the fiber arts, including knitting, becoming a skilled weaver, a complicated process that involves warping a loom, as well as the actual weaving process. She was a member of the Seattle Weaver's Guild.

The couple loved to travel and took the family on several trips to Mexico and Hawaii, to share their enjoyment. Their love of Mexico is evident in the many works of local art that they collected over the years. Both enjoyed the arts, travel, and gardening, and their extensive book collection also reflects this interest.

SISTERS ANTIQUES ESTATE SALE -- RENTON HIGHLANDS

Saturday * February 11, 2017 * 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Sunday * February 12, 2017 * 8:00 am - 4:00 pm


Sale has ended




Description of sale: Working on this sale has really been fun! I think we enjoy going through barns and sheds a lot more than dealing with what we so often find inside the home. Where else can you find SIX saddles along with all the related tack? And then… hundreds of tools specifically for plumbing, old sinks, a collection of ax and pick heads, vintage doors and windows, early appliances, radio and television tubes, shelf after shelf packed with everything imaginable … and the list goes on! We even spent a couple of days digging things up that had been partially swallowed by the land over many, many years.

As always, we asked for a bit of history on the estate and our client was kind enough to pen this for us:

“Welcome to our estate sale. This property was homesteaded somewhere around the turn of the century and spans three generations. Although the original house is gone, the horse pastures and orchard stand as reminders of days past. The family was into truck/tractor repair, construction and various other trades. As time progressed over the years, the original outbuildings on the property have degraded back into the earth. What remains are unique tools, car parts, and various porcelain remnants of the past.

I have fond memories of growing up next door as a little girl and visiting Great-Grandma and having her show me a small, round musical powder-puff container. I now share that same memento of my past with our own grand-children. During your visit, you will find unique items that typically range in date from the early 1900s to present – including several items from a 1940-50’s kitchen. As you look through our items I hope you can appreciate all the talented, loving and hard-working hands that have touched so many lives.”

Description of sale: After well over 32 years, the owners are downsizing and moving to a small cabin up north. This 2,500 square foot home resides on half an acre with an over-sized garage full of tools, trunks, sports equipment, yard/gardening equipment, and lots of projects!

As the oldest daughter in the family, she was the executrix of her parents (Seattle natives) and grandparents’ estates. Luckily, she never parted with many of the family treasures until now when space is at a premium! Her grandfather founded Norton Tile and Marble Company in Seattle and did the marble work in the state capitol building and many of the old buildings in Seattle. He was most proud of his work in the Seattle Opera House. His family hails from Minnesota and many items were brought here in the early 1900s. His grandmother bought each son a Steiff animal for Christmas for many years and he’s finally parting with his collection.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This fascinating gentleman lived in this home for 40 years, since the mid-70s after living in California, Ohio, and Texas. Having been a salesman for a Christian publishing company, he traveled the western half of the United States from this home. His sales cases and luggage remain.

Always the very well dressed professional representative, “Dapper Dan” was a term often used to describe this him. He impressed people with his wardrobe as well as his warm and winning personality and character. That immaculate wardrobe is available with many combinations of sport coats and slack or suits well cared for and preserved in every closet in the home (with matching ties looped around the hangers!). His shoe collection is remarkable and well preserved too.

Being a bachelor, this gentleman had time to enjoy his travels on business, but also vacation travel brought him great joy. Trips to the South Pacific, the Orient, England, Europe, the Biblical Middle East including Israel, Egypt and Greece were the source of many precious memories. Family found a document stating he had been in 30 countries, some of them two and three times!

From the age of six he was a movie fan. He even lived for years on Hollywood Boulevard, had friends in the cinema industry and attended the Academy Awards. He even had a few appearances as an extra. For almost his entire life he was collecting movie memorabilia including books, magazines, VHS and DVD format movies, posters, etc. He gained great satisfaction in clipping photos and stories about hundreds of actors and actresses and maintaining extensive files. While some of his memorabilia collection was donated to BYU in his life and at death as he wished, much remains for sale including more than a thousand movies on VHS, scrapbooks, journals, photos, etc.

Known in his church community as a generous and supportive member, he was also known for his culinary skills. His sour cream raisin pie was a delight to all. He often contributed pie-making lessons for auction in church fundraising; always a hot item in bidding.

A partial list includes: 100+ movie posters, 1000s of VHS movies, 100s… maybe 1000s of books, 1800s antique walnut rope bed, 50s-60s Movieland magazines, Academy Players Directory miscellaneous years ranging from 1939-1963, antique Empire (?) mahogany chairs, antique meat grinder, art, baking supplies, Baldwin spinet piano w/bench, barware, black and white photographs late 1800s to 1950s, books, bookshelves, several boxed silver plated/crystal coasters NIB, camera and supplies, cane/upholstered chairs, chairs, china, Christmas items, cleaning supplies, coffee tables, collectibles, cookbooks, copper molds, Corningware, couch, crystal, decanters, Depression glass, desk, dresser with matching mirror, dressers, electric adjustable bed, end tables, Ethan Allen sofa, file cabinets 3-4-5 drawer, fireplace tools, floor lamps, Fostoria American oval dish, four-poster bed, frames, Franciscan Apple, furnishings, gardening supplies and tools, Guardian Ware coffee percolator, Guardian Ware Dutch ovens, hand tools, Heisey, highboy dresser, Hi-Hat Line furniture NC, Hollywood memorabilia, household items, housewares, ice cream scoop antique, inflatable bed mattress, Johann Haviland Bavaria Germany set of china, kitchen table w/4 chairs, kitchen utensils, lamp tables, lamps, large set of Stanley Roberts stainless flatware in Liberte pattern, Leica projector, Lenox, linens, luggage, lumber, men’s clothing in every closet, men's clothing (XL, 46-48, shoes 10-11), microwave, miscellaneous silver plated serving utensils, Moulinex vintage food processor, moving boxes, office supplies, Oster blender, ottoman, pantry VERY FULL of food, pots and pans, power tools, Princess House, projector, Pyrex, red and blue postal box cookie jar, salesman’s cases, Sheffield stoneware dish set, Shirley Temple pitcher cobalt glass, silhouette, small appliances, stainless steel cookware, Sumter cabinet company SC furniture, tea pots, teacart with removable tray, tools, upholstered chairs, vintage Converse men’s white canvas shoes, Wedgwood stoneware set of dishes, Westinghouse waffle iron circa 1909, wine glasses, wooden cutting boards, wooden vintage rolling pin…

SISTERS ANTIQUES ESTATE SALE / SAMMAMISH (Part 1)

Sale has ended

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: Cash only; no checks. If service is available, we will accept credit/debit for sales over $100 (there is a 3% fee). There is no excess cash on premises; till is emptied regularly. All valuables are removed from the sale nightly. Sales tax will be charged; dealers must provide a resale certificate at time of purchase – NO exceptions!

No refunds or returns. Be sure of your purchase before you pay - all sales are final! As with most sales, if you put it in your box or pile - you are buying it! If you tag it 'sold', it is yours. If you pay for it, you own it. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

Any sign-up list is to be self-managed. A limited number of people will be allowed into the home at intervals to ensure shopping is as safe and uninterrupted as possible. The amount of people entering the sale is totally dependent upon the size of the house and accessibility within.

* A note about the sign-up list: Please understand I have no control over who is first in line; I only control how many people will be allowed in at any given time. At some point prior to the sale and after the address is published, I will put out a clipboard with a sign-up list on my letterhead. This is done to avoid lists of others being pulled by less-than-honest people who then start a new list with their name first. If a person chooses to be on the premises before the official list is provided, it is up to that person(s) to know placement in line and add their name to the official list. Again – the list is self-managed by the buyers, not me!

Bring your own bags, boxes, packing materials and muscle. Our staff is needed inside the house and is not available for loading. Many items in the sale have been sorted into bins and crates; these are NOT included with the purchased items. All items must be removed by the end of the last day of sale. Display pieces must be paid for at the time of sale, but may not be picked up until the final day of the sale or a mutually agreed-upon time if they are being used for displaying goods. Not responsible for accidents or injuries.

Please leave jackets, large purses/carry-on type bags, backpacks, etc., at home! We will NOT allow anyone to bring these into the sale.

DESCRIPTION OF SALE: We began working on this estate in May and held the first sale in August. Our contract stipulated that we would hold 2 sales, each for 3 consecutive days, 2 months apart.

The collecting story: He said that as a little boy his pockets were always full of something he thought important enough to save. After he married, he and his wife returned to the home of his parents and he found some of his books that his mother had rescued from his nephews. With about a dozen of the original books from his childhood, his Big Little Book collection began.

As an adult, he started collecting Flag Cancels, usually found on old post cards. He later became interested in the other side of old post cards. Another time, he was told of a collector that had just died and whose wife wanted to sell his post card collection. He corresponded with her for several months and she sent him samples of the cards. After traveling back to see the collection, he bought about 250,000 post cards. He sorted and worked the post card collection pretty extensively. He joined the Portland post card club and later helped start the Seattle post card club.

He decided he liked old paper items and started collecting newspapers and magazines. He was interested in old comics and anything related to comic character items and looked for those items wherever he could find them. He advertised locally as well as using the Antique Trader newspaper for ads.

An interesting story about his resources: He was reading a 20 year old Antique Trader newspaper and found the ad of someone in Oklahoma advertising to buy Disney products. He wrote the collector, asking if he was still collecting or if he had anything to sell. About 2 months later he got a letter from a professor from a college in Ohio. He was the Disney collector. He still had the collection and it was for sale. After several correspondences he bought the collection. He immediately sold the “Walt Disney Comic and Stories” in the collection for the same price he paid for the whole collection and kept the rest of the collection for himself.

He once got a letter from a woman answering his ad for Big Little Books. She had about 7 books to sell him. One title was a Superman book for $28. He knew the Superman book was not a Big Little Book but he was interested and bought the books from her. It was a “Superman” #1 comic book in mint condition. This was in the early 1970’s. He was afraid the book would get ruined if he kept it because he had children who might accidentally damage the book. He sold it for a very good profit but not near the price it brought in later years. He did not have seller’s remorse; he felt he made a good profit and it was the thing to do at the time!

Through the years, he met many interesting people while collecting and selling. He thought collectors were made up of some of the better people around.

Among many other things, he collected post cards, Flag cancels, Ship cancels, newspapers, magazines, match covers, stamps, first day covers, Big Little Books, children’s books, comics, advertising items, pin-back buttons, games, toys, cast iron toys, tin litho windup toys, advertising mirrors, trays, Akro Agate, comic-related items, marbles. Every collection was large!

When he died his daughter wanted his favorite collection to keep for herself. She was told that he loved all his collections. The thing he loved most was because of the story that went with it. She chose his cast iron Toonerville Trolley car because of his story. Around 1975 he saw an ad in the Antique Trader magazine; someone was selling a cast iron Toonerville Trolley. He wrote the man asking for further details. The man wanted $1000.00 firm for his trolley and it had a crack in the top of it. That was a lot of money for a broken toy so he chose to pass on the deal. Several months later a collector friend called to tell him there was a new antique store in Kirkland that had a lot of toys, including a cast iron Toonerville Trolley. It was just before Christmas and he was still at work. His wife dashed over to Kirkland and bought the Toonerville Trolley and returned home. She told him of the friend’s call about the new store but neglected telling him about the Toonerville Trolley. Christmas morning he opened his present of the Toonerville Trolley. He said, “You didn’t!” She responded, “No, this one does not have a crack.” He loved that gift. To this day, she has never told anyone how much was paid for that toy.

HISTORY: Undoubtedly, this has been the most amazing estate sale experience I have ever had in my career. By the date of the sale, we will have put in three months photographing, unboxing and uncrating, unwrapping, sorting, displaying, arranging, rearranging, merchandising, researching, again photographing, and pricing the most wonderful fifty-year plus collection of treasures we have ever seen! In addition to rooms lined with floor-to-ceiling shelving, countless display fixtures, various sizes of tables throughout the rooms, and hundreds of crates for sorting, we brought in 12 6’ banquet tables, 6 4’ tables, numerous card tables, showcases, and seemingly tons of boxes to organize and exhibit everything!

***UPDATE: Due to the volume of this estate, there is not sufficient room to display everything that will be for sale and still allow enough room for people to shop. Per the request of our client, we will hold a second sale offering the balance of the estate.



(Over 800 photographs have been taken and edited down to about 250 so far, beginning with our preliminary pictures, through set-up and as we complete final displays; sorry they aren't grouped better, but this is the way they load onto the site. We will be adding additional photos as we can.)

Description of sale: This home has been such a joy to work in! The view of Puget Sound is amazing and the beach is less than a mile to the west. Before the neighboring trees grew tall and more and more houses were built, there was a clear view of the Space Needle! Watching the cruise ships, ferries and countless sailboats and cruisers come and go certainly is a distraction! We’re still hoping to see some whales while we’re enjoying our visit here...

The owners grew up in occupied Norway during World War II. They actually came from two different areas in Norway and didn't know each other until they came to the United States. He was from a farm in the southern part of Norway; she was from the mountains in the western part of Norway. She actually grew up in the hotel where some of the Norwegian army stayed. Later in the war, the Nazis occupied the hotel.

After the war, they came to the United States. (After so many years of occupation it took Norway quite a long time to get back on her feet.) He had some family in Washington and she knew people in Seattle. They actually met at a dance – dances were held quite often at the Norway Center for a fairly large Norwegian population. Although she planned to be in the United States only for a year or so and then return to Norway... things changed! They married in Seattle in 1954. Since traveling to other countries wasn’t as common as it is today and because it was so expensive, her mother was not able to attend her wedding (her father passed when she was only 5). The first time he ever met his wife’s mother was after their 3 children were born, during a family trip to Norway in 1965. A 60 year anniversary was celebrated last year!

The home (nearly 4,000 square feet) was built in 1968. Every weekend he would help his father (who was the contractor) work on building the house. Children joined in as well, choosing the carpeting and ceiling fixtures, AND selecting the desktop Formica for the built-in desks for their bedrooms! The children, all adults with their own families now, talk about what it was like growing up in this wonderful neighborhood... lots of other kids, late summer evenings playing kick-the-can from house to house until the final call from their parents to come in for dinner. Wonderful memories!
