HIDE & HUNT TIP – this week’s  treasure to find is the “wooden fish of many colors” – last week’s winner was Mo from Mo’s Search & Rescue Antique Store in San Mateo  – she is always a good sport during the sales – she found the old Chevy hubcap at about 11:30 am on Friday – amazingly we forgot to hide the treasure and it was in plain view right on the floor near the antique Secretary and yet no one in the large crowd found it until Mo came along / just goes to show you that sometimes life’s riches are right in front of you –  those pictures are at attached in the email and at the end of the photos in the current sale page /
DRIVING AND PARKING TIPS easy to find since the sale is in the heart of the Castro  / Eureka Valley Area middle of SF (3 blocks from the former MHR Catholic grammar school at 18th & Diamond Sts – this is where Kevin went from K to 8th – then to Sacred Heart high school – then to USF) – it is on Hartford between  17th & 18th Streets – there is 2 hours and metered parking everywhere for good turnover plus there is street sweeping  at around9 am which means lots of spaces right about that time – please do not block driveways. as always /
NICE NOTE – at the end of the photos please read both the recommendation letter and an actual poem we recently received – they were written by truly pleased clients who hired us to conduct their estate sales – we are quite proud of them and want to share them with you – please remember we represent the clients first and foremost – then hopefully in turn we can satisfy you the customer – we are the mediators between both of you which at times can be daunting – but we try our best and more often than not almost everyone ends up with a smile on their face / Yeah ///
