You won’t have to hunt for the treasures in Treasure Island

this weekend; the unusual and unique items clearly stand out


Our Estate Sale this weekend in Treasure Island features items from the estate of a locally prominent family who believe in doing things in a big way. Furniture and super-sized items are the norm here, so you won’t be swamped by smalls, except for unique ones. Expect to see unusual furniture, a couple of manatees, a king-sized monkey bed, African masks and an Elvis sighting. Two superb wood carvings by Julio Navarro are the show-stoppers.

Here are the details:

12704 Lagoon Lane at 127th Ave., Treasure Island 33706
Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3 & 4
9 am to 2 pm both days
