Antiques in garage sale on May 31-June 1

Dear Friends,

We are downsizing over the summer and building a condo to move in October.

Here is a list of what is on my first garage sale:

Fisher Price, Kitchen Aid, Tupperware, Cabbage Patch, high chair, 24" girls bike, Christmas, collectibles, antique furniture, sofa, microwave, hot tub, tools, keyboard, rocking chairs

Hours on Friday are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 3 Riden Circle.

Below are photos and descriptions of the antique furniture:

#1 Hoosier kitchen cabinet (circa 1940) – asking $1000
The original label

It was painted about 30 years ago. 

The center doors on the top have the original hardware.

The cutting board below the enameled work top is missing.

This is the right side of the enameled work top.

There is one scrape on the enameled work top’s left side.

The metal flour bin is in the lower right of the bottom section.

The “roll top” doors slide open and go back into the sides of the top section.

#2 Walnut veneer dining table with 4 leaves and 6 chairs (circa 1940). Never been used without table pads, included – asking $700.

Here is the table with all four leaves.

Without the glare from the camera flash, this is more the true color of the walnut veneer.

This is a closeup of the table legs.

There are 5 plain chairs and one with arms. The seats were recovered 20 years ago.

#3 Oak table with 3 leaves (circa 1940). The drop leaves on the ends are missing. There are 4 chairs which had been painted. – asking $200

This is the detail of the oak table legs.

 This is the detail to show the grain of the oak table top.

One chair is completely stripped of paint, one is partially done, 
and two still have the paint on the oak.
