Here are the details:

1501 San Christopher Dr., Dunedin, FL

Thurs. & Fri., March 26 & 27, 9 AM to 4 PM

Sat., March 28, 9 AM to 2 PM



This promises to be one of those unforgettable sales! Come and experience Old Florida on this 2-acre property that hasn’t changed much since the early 1900s. This home and its four outbuildings are chock full of history and artifacts that speak of a gentler, less congested Florida. The creaking of the old wood floors, the nostalgic smells of forgotten summer cottages, the secret playroom in the attic … all these sights and sensations will transport you back in time. There is very little that is ordinary in this extraordinary sale. You won’t find much in the way of modern household appliances or CDs, but you will find many things that evoke old memories of times long gone and you will find treasures now hard to come by. That alone is worth the experience. You are going to have a blast at this sale!
