Batavia Estate Sale
1037 Towne Ave.

Batavia, IL 60510

Hello All

We are posting this sale early, because we want to give you enough time to plan for the big event, so mark your calendars.  This home belonged to a couple that (we’re not kidding) did not throw out anything in 60+ years.  They were very organized, and very neat, but they kept everything.  Richard preceded Grace in death, and Grace followed several years later.  They willed everything to the Children’s School of Holy Cross Church in Batavia…their hope was that the funds would go directly to the school, rather than the church or the diocese. We think this is a grand idea, and we hope you can all come out to support the sale!

And WHAT A SALE it is!  The couple had no children, so were able to purchase quality items, whether it was furniture, décor, dining pieces, kitchenware, jewelry, collectibles, books, tools, garage items, historical memorabilia, military items, vintage couture and clothing, Holiday items, Mid Century Modern things, Art (including original art, signed Lithos, Sculptures, more)  and all sorts of pieces of interest, functionality, beauty, expense and more.

Because of the thousands of items to research & price, please do not call asking about prices – normally I don’t mind this, however the sheer volume makes it impossible for this sale.  Thanks for understanding!
