Harmon Estate Sale, Part 2

Because my life wasn't busy enough already.... I am currently immersed in preparing for the second round of my father's estate sale. This time, we're tackling the trailers. What trailers, you ask? Funny story: my grandparents loaded up two trailers and a moving van full of antiques and personal possessions back in 1984. They parked the trailers and van behind my dad's shop, planning to retrieve them once they had found a new place to live. For various reasons, the trailers were never retrieved. They sat for 30 years as a small forest grew up around them, and as they sank into the ground up to their axles.

This past winter, we unloaded the trailers and relocated the contents to the Old Pin Shop in Oakville. The contents of the trailers, as well as the contents of my dad's house, comprise the next round of the Harmon Estate Sale, starting Saturday, August 9.

The sale includes something for everyone, at reasonable prices. There is a TON of stuff, taking up 7,000 square feet of storage space. Because there is so much stuff, the sale will be ongoing through the month of August, from August 9 to Labor Day. We'll be open every weekend, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and every Wednesday and Thursday, 12 to 6 p.m.

Directional signs will be posted outside the Pin Shop on the days we are open. I'll add the specific address to this post on Friday, August 8 (no early birds!).

Here are some sample photos of what we are selling:
