Yard Sale - 918 E. New Orleans Ave

We're having a yard sale Saturday. September 30 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Clearing out yard, garage, house and studio extras.

The showcase piece is the Velma Lykes cabinet. It is a large cabinet, dimensions 51 1/4" W x 15"D x 94"H. It has 24 drawers and four nice shelves, with a cubby hole. and doors that close and lock over the drawers. On the bottom of one of the drawers is written "This side done by Stanley Simon, back done by Henry Whitman, designed by Velma Lykes at Spring Hill, Brooksville, Florida. January, 1952. Brought this piece and the escarparate and oakcase that was originally with it at the Lodge, Arden N.C. We have used some of the (?)for the Green Room bookshelves." Another drawer is signed Mrs. L.E. Lykes, Hilton Lodge. Arden, North Carolina. To the best of my knowledge the wood and finish on this piece are original. Price is $500.

Also, offered at this sale will be an old wood swivel desk chair, $35. It's creaky and needs some tuning.

My studio divan, light colored wood, 60's or 70's style with loose back and seat cushions. They are firm and in good shape. Dull gray fabric begs to be covered. $25. Old metal conference table, large. Great for workshop or crafting. $30. All this and other stuff you might just want.
