Estate Sale in San Mateo this weekend

21 Jan

For all yee land lubbers in San Francisco and the Bay Area, there looks like a great Estate Sale going on down south in San Mateo. Ah, San Mateo, they have some great chinese food places in their downtown area. So when you work up an appetite after your estate saling, you can’t say I didn’t steer you right.

The estate sale is going from today, Friday, until Sunday. Check out this eye sore of a website for more information, pictures, and directions.

This Weekend!

7 Jan

It’s the Second Sunday Antique Faire time again! Make sure to get them steals n’ deals! We’ll see if I feel like braving the harsh winter air.

There will also be an estate sale in Oakland. There is some mention of Mid-Century furniture goin’ on. It’ll be going on tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday only. Could be promising? I’ll be driving down to Corning to look at a sweet 1980’s Toyota van, so I won’t be attending. :D

Another estate sale is going on in Elk Grove on Friday, the 8th. Doesn’t look to mid-century, but it’s close-by. Go to that tasty Mongolian Grill in the strip mall they got there, oh my! They cook your food on a rotating block with pool cues!

This 1960’s estate sale is in Berkeley. They seem to have lots of blonde furniture, and I’m really lovin’ that compact formica dinette. original post)


This is the sale I am most excited about. Based on the photos, they seem to have a little somethin’ from the each of the big names (Saarinen, Eames, etc). I am completely sad that I won’t be able to make it but if you can take photos of all the madness, that would be awesome! I’m sure people are camping out for this one. (original post)
