When an estate sale is advertised as jammed-packed with “stuff,” and can stand behind its claim, then it should be one whale of a sale.
And, that’s just what it will be said Susan Jinright, treasurer of the Humane Society of Pike County, which will be the beneficiary of the estate sale.
“The Estate of Delores Hutter sale will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2 and 3 at 1048 County Road 3319 near Brundidge.
“All proceeds from the estate sale will go to the Humane Society of Pike County and everything is priced to sale,” Jinright said.
“We have two buildings filled with items of every kind. Both buildings are jam-packed.”
Jinright said one building is filled with crystal, china, silver, antique furniture, other furniture, kitchenware, knickknacks, pictures, textiles lamps, books and ephemera.
“The barn is full of tools and I mean full of tools,” she said.
“There is every kind of tool that you can imagine and then some. There are new tools, old tools and antique tools and some tools that I can’t even identify. We have tool chests filled with tools and old wooden tool chests.”
There are buckets and buckets of every kind of nail and screw that was ever made and nuts and bolts. There is a wealth of tack, including five saddles, bridles and a horse cart.
“There are leatherworking items, woodworking items, hardware, singletrees, juicers and microscopes, just so many things that I can’t even begin to name them all,” Jinright said.
Those who love to “plunder” in attics and abandoned barns will have a hey-day at the Estate Sale to benefit the Humane Society of Pike County.
“Everyone should be able to find something of interest and the prices are very good,” Jinright said.
Directions to the estate sale are simple. Take U.S. Highway 231 and travel a couple of miles south Brundidge. Take Country Road 125 at the caution light and then the first paved road to the right (Rev. Jack Allen Road) and go one and a half miles.
The sale will be on the right and there will be signs marking the spot.
