We are having a multi-family estate sale here at Warehouse 414. You will not want to miss it! It’s like a treasure hunt.
You know……….”one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Of course I think that is why John and I are in this business. We are treasure hunters. And it’s not really to find the most expensive treasures but for us the most interesting. Unfortunately, because of this, it takes us way more time to go through everything. We both grew up doing this with our parents and fate, or God, put us together. I question sometimes if that is a good thing or not since between the two of us NOTHING is trash! We quit our “good paying” jobs to go into business for ourselves 27 years ago. We will never be rich monetarily but we sure have had fun. Currently we own a 40,000 square foot building (in addition to our Warehouse 414 building) that is FULL, in our opinion, of treasures. A friend of ours once told a friend of his who he had brought by to take a look “John and Chris’ stuff is 70% trash and 30% treasure; of course everyone’s 70 and 30 percentages are different!”
Anyway, I digress. What I really wanted to tell you about were the main contributors of this sale; Marlene and Ken Orr, longtime Topeka and Potwin residents. We are going through 40 plus years of accumulation. From jewelry to silver service, tools to old Atari games, books, books, books, books, leather, lace, china, crystal, and even a flying pig! We also will have items left from a previous sale. That particular sale contained mostly item previously belonging to the consignor’s grandparents and her grandfather just happened to be the Chief Medical Officer of the Panama Canal during the first part of the 20th century and they just happened to be friends with Ike and Mamie Eisenhower who just happened to visit them often so you may be buying dinnerware used by the Eisenhowers or a chair where Ike sat???? You just never know when you’re looking for treasurers.
Come shopping. The sale starts Thursday May 19 at 9am and runs through May 21. The exact hours are: Thursday May 19 and Friday May 20, 9am-5:30pm and Saturday May 21, 10am-4pm. Saturday also happens to be HALF PRICE DAY!
We will be adding photos as time goes on!
