Estate Sale Roundup: October 31-November 2

Keeping it core: Allandale, Crestview, and Northwest Hills pillaging

Still life with Jesus, aloe, and toaster oven

Estate sailing is like fishing – some days the deals are tugging at our line, and some days they're not. This week the tide is in, with a variety from both kitschy contemporaries and genuine senior collectors, all looking to divest.

Crestview Mid-Century Modern and Vintage Sale
Shop until you can't see the intersection at West Anderson and Burnet Road. The denizens here leave 35 years of their lives for your perusal. Don't let the thrift-store buyers and franchise pickers beat you out on this one, so get there early. We'll let the photos make the case. Cash and carry, no checks accepted. Shopping baskets provided. 1808 Pompton, 78757; Fri., 10am-2pm, Sat., 9am-1pm.
