Yesterday, four of us from MEE spent several more hours getting ready for the estate sale.
The Miniature Enthusiasts of Edmonton Club has been asked by the family of a former member to handle the sale of her miniatures. We will be doing so at a garage sale at 9803 - 152 Street, Edmonton, AB, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2013.
Due to the nature of the sale, there will be absolutely no pre-sales. Items will be available only during garage sale hours.
There will be eight 8` tables covered with empty roomboxes; radio cabinets; furniture - dollar store to Bespaq to artisan; landscaping supplies; books and magazines; accessories (many by artisans such as Ladybug, Janice Crawley and several local artisans); dolls (artisan, resin and kits); beads; fabrics and trims; suppplies; tools; furniture and accessory kits; and Hallmark ornaments. Most of the items are 1:12 scale but there is a good selection of smaller scales.
You can see pictures of some of the items for sale on my fotki site. There are just SO many wonderful things.
There`s a Bespaq baby cabinet that I didn`t get a picture of...and a most incredible baby basinette in 1:48 scale. A set of metal mini medical tools...some beautiful lace trims...furniture and accessories to suit any budget...and several bags of carpenter tools for anyone wanting to do a garage or workshop.
The family has chosen to keep almost all of Bonnie`s completed pieces although there is one great Halloweèn breakaway box done in a cigar box that she made.
There are 11 Georgee Prockiw dolls. For those of you who aren`t in western Canada, Georgee was a fabulous doll artist who was a member of our club. She is best known for her `Queen Mom` doll, one of which was gifted to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. (Before you ask, this doll has been kept by the family.)
For those of you who live close enough to Edmonton to attend this sale, I think you will be be thrilled with the extent of the items available and pleased with the prices.
