An Enormous ESTATE SALE in Taos, Home of an Interior Decorator

October 11-14, 2019 Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday
Gate opens at 8AM, a 10 minute drive from center of Taos

These photographs reflect much of what was to be sold. High end items were turned over to the family which means there was no jewelry or silverware in the house to be sold, it was already dispersed. The general public sale began Friday October 11 and ran through Monday October 14, prices were set at fair market value and extremely fair. Unfortunately a family member is still living in the home and made it difficult to preview items. He also constantly looted the joint (aka they pulled a 'bait & switch' on me, I saw all this stuff to sell, then they removed 2/3 of it) and sabotaged the sale every possible way he could.
Many items were never used and were purchased at Wabi Sabl, Taos Country Furnishings, Taos Tin Works, Alhambra, Boshard Fine Art.
On a side note, the homeowner Joan Adams is doing just fine, alive and well at the Taos Living Center.

Monday from 8-4 was the VERY last Day. The thing about this that's kept me going has been you. Yup, you. People from Taos Pueblo to Penasco coming by to visit and shop. To help me unburden the vast amounts of items in this home in order to get the house sold for the family. Some of you have come by more than once and returned with family & friends. Roxanne Swentzell's mom came by today, what is it about meeting someone's mom and they are just the loveliest mom ever, each and every time. You've cracked me up with laughter, teased me and bartered as if we were at the casbah. On the very first day, the brother of a friend came by to tell me that Mike (who had owned the gun shop on the highway in Ranchos forever) had passed away. He'd come by to tell me how much Mike thought of me, that had me in tears. A truly sad way to begin, but also a great reminder to LOVE every minute. So here's to you Taos for the great turnout and the love I've felt from all of you.

I truly hope the family members will donate the following items to:
Stray Hearts Animal Shelter:
Towels, Stuffed Animals/Puppets, Dog Toys
CAV Thrift Store:
Glasses, Kitchenware, Lamp, Woman’s Clothing, Candles, Baskets, Pillows
Habitat for Humanity Re-Store:
