Another Estate Sale Time Capsule!

By Sara In AZ


Mike and I went to another Estate Sale this past Saturday and the house turned out to be a time capsule that was up for sale! This house was built in 1956 and has 3 bedrooms with 1800 sq. feet. There is also a guest house, in the  back, with 500 sq. feet. This house is selling for $374,900 and is on the Phoenix/Scottsdale border.

The front of the house.

The front entry. Look at that old wallpaper!

The kitchen had really nice original knotty pine cabinets. Oh, I hope the next owner leaves these cabinets in, they are really nice!

I think the stove top/hood may be a bit newer than 1956.

The kitchen area had a really nice beamed ceiling, though I think I would get rid of the wallpaper in between the beams. Just sayin’.

 The TV area also had original cabinetry.

One of the bedrooms also had the Eagle wallpaper.

I think the bathrooms in this house had been re-done. This was the only bathroom in the main  house I could get a pic of.

The guest house was pretty cute.

The kitchen was cute also, with the original cabinets and a cute little metal kitchen set-up – with a refrigerator, stove  and sink all in one (you can’t see the stove burners, because they are covered by plates !).

The bathroom in the guest house looked original too, with light brown linen look Formica counter tops.

This house was cute, but not the right size, or layout,  for Mike and I. The search for our very own time capsule goes on…….

Stay tuned, on Thursday a TOTALLY bomb-a licious time capsule in Phoenix spotted by Shen!!!!

    Nice, Sara! I covet that linen countertop, but you can keep the eagle wallpaper. Yeesh.

    Ruth – I agree about that eagle wallpaper, but I thought it was a total hoot! he he – hoot hoot! Now poodles, well that is a different story. 😉 Can you believe that I did not buy ONE single thing at the sale. I know, it is a shock isn’t it. 🙂 I am super excited to see all of your new furniture girl!
