Welcome to another True Legacy time capsule: the seventies, when summers were endless, admission to Disneyland was $ 3.50 and the Mickey Mouse memorabilia in this house was only a few cents.
Things have changed, but most everything in this estate looks as good as it did back then: The splendid Steinway & Sons upright piano still sounds powerful, warm, and rich, and the brand new GE Automatic Solid State phonograph awaits to play the many vinyl records available, including the soundtrack of the blockbuster “Jaws” from 1975 and the sultry sounds of the sixties.
Papasans were popular in that decade; hence you can find a beautiful bamboo set with floral cushions and ottoman and an equally hip daybed/chair with three stools.
Not yet out of the box, a 5-foot grandfather clock awaits a new owner, while a pair of Italian made Savonarola Dantesca walnut chairs rest between a matching Italian marble top table. Other mid-century modern pieces of furniture and bookshelves complete the offering: four wooden captain barstools and a magnificent Spanish style king-sized bedroom set, but standing above is a stunning copper-lined vintage wood hibachi from Japan, from where many other objects were brought: fine porcelain, figurines, vases, Imariware china set, paintings, embroidery, pencil and ink drawings, and a fascinating Chinese dragon mask.
Many 70’s generation toys can be found, including a Kenner Bionic Woman Beauty Salon doll, Airfix and Minicraft navy fighter model kits, a vintage Hang Ten skateboard, mod 500 to 8,000 piece jigsaw puzzles, and board games: but the honorable mention goes to the impeccable Atari 2600 console and games from 1977.
For the philatelists, there is a huge collection of world and American stamps, including dozens of first-day covers, special covers, Liberty stamps, and reference books.
You will also find a fine lot of equestrian gear: saddle blanket, hackamore, crupper, halter, stirrups, bridle, whip, an 80” closed front coverall, helmet, etc.
Fashion-wise, there are many ladies’ leather bags and shoes, and an Eddy Hat Co. 7 1/8 “Western Pleasure” hat.
In the library, you will discover dozens of genealogy and ancestry books, a complete 1975 Encyclopedia Britannica, Macropedia, and Micropedia, with 1976 thru 1993 yearbooks, Medical and Health annuals from 1975 thru 1984. You can also find hundreds of issues of “Fantastic adventures”, the comic book predecessor, issued between 1940 and 1950, a few vintage comic books, dozens of vintage cookbooks, crochet books, and a few first editions, among them “To kill a mockingbird” and “Little women”.
The vintage cache of goods includes Corning Ware, a dozen of Andrea by Sadek hummingbirds, a Brother Personal Printer (typewriter) model EP-20, tapestries, crochet supplies, musket and spear reproductions, lamps, vintage Kenwood and Pioneer electronic equipment (including a pair of Pioneer CS-06 360 degree speakers), Murano glass, garden tools, pool supplies and much more.
Another truly amazing True Legacy Estate Sale!
