Downsizing Sale in Rosedale near Camp Mabry
"Ms. G. spent her life active in politics, and for a time lived in Washington, D.C. and worked in the Clinton Administration. Her home near Camp Mabry is small but tastefully furnished so this would be a great stop on your October 24/25 estate sale tour. She died relatively young so the furnishings and accents here are closer to current trends than you would typically find in an estate sale." Here you'll find flat-screen TV's; sofas, chairs, and upholstered bar stools; golf clubs; stemware crystal, and Talavera ceramics; china cabinet and dining room table and chairs; left-leaning books on politics; as well as clothing and jewelry.
