Treasure Hunt at Belleair home of a compulsive collector starts Mon., Sept. 8 and runs all week; this lady was a hoot!

Don’t think for a minute that our next sale is “just another Estate Sale.”  There is so much unusual about this sale that we’ve made a list:

From West Bay Drive, go north on Indian Rocks Rd. approximately 1 mile. Park in Belleview Biltmore Golf Club parking lot at corner of Poinsettia. Walk north about a half block. See Google Map.

1. This house is literally bursting at the seams with items. For the first time in recorded history, we will be forced to limit the number of people in the house at one time. Heck, the house is so full there are only paths, no open spaces.

2. The property is on Indian Rocks Rd., creating a parking dilemma. The Belleview Biltmore Golf Club at Indian Rocks Rd. and Poinsettia has graciously permitted parking on their property, a half block (or so) south of the sale house. We recommend you park there and walk. On-street parking also available on Golfview just north of the house.

3. Because of the sheer volume for sale, we will be running the sale for six days, beginning Monday, Sept. 8, 3 to 6 pm each day, ending on Saturday from 10 to 3 pm.

4. And last, but not least … about pricing. Tagging the 50,000+ items we have for sale was impossible, so we’ve kept  it simple, only tagging things worth $10 or more. For everything else, you’ll just have to ask.

This is how the living room (and every other room) looked the first day we arrived at the scene.  It will look somewhat better by sale dates (we hope!).

What you need to bring: besides lots of dollar bills, you should bring patience, a love of rummaging and an open mind. There was no room to stage this sale in customary Encore Events style, so you gotta be willing to dig for the treasures that lie hidden.

Here are the details:
1313 N. Indian Rocks Rd., Belleair, FL 33756
Mon. – Fri., Sept. 8 thru 13, 3 PM to 6 PM
Sat., Sept. 13, 10 AM to 3 PM … the really big blowout event.

About the Compulsive Collector … this homeowner had an uncanny eye for the unusual, the eclectic, the bizarre and the beautiful. The more she shopped, the more she squirreled things away over the years. Next to shopping, it appears she loved to party because nearly everything in the house has “fun” written all over it. This is one of those sales that will go down in estate sale history as unbelievable. You should not miss it!

To give you an idea of what treasures we’ve already discovered:

· Bar room complete with neon beer signs, vintage bar accessories, Rock-ola jukebox, keg taps, slot machines, and holy mackerel … so much more.

· Vintage jewelry by the box load

· 100’s of handbags, shoes, scarves, vintage clothing items (many are glitzy), furs

· Many 100’s of record albums, piggy banks, Christmas items (many new in box), clocks, games

· Tons of glassware (so many pounds we had a table collapse from the sheer volume. Big mess!)

All of the above are under-estimations. You have to see this sale to believe it.




Another “before” picture. There is no rhyme or reason behind our efforts to stage these items. You’ll see what we mean when you get here. It will be very, very fun if love to treasure hunt!

If you

are easily overwhelmed,

brace yourself!

You’re not going to

believe this treasure hunt!

Lots of furniture, curio/display cabinets, dining table and chairs, bookshelves, occasional tables, vanity table, king bed, bedroom dressers/chests … more. Wait and see!
