Two Mid Century Modern Sales, One Neighborhood
Both sales are in the Skokie-Evanston area just off Golf Road. Each runs on Friday and Saturday.
Sale A: 9511 Drake, Evanston. The cat who ate Danish Modern, with lots of lamps and housewares and teak style thrown in. This one goes from 9 am to 3 pm on Friday and Saturday, 10/9 and 10/10.
Sale B: 9700 Kedvale in Skokie. To control traffic at the opening of the sale at 9 am on Friday, there's a sign-up sheet posted on the front door of this location. No worries, this just means that if you want to be one of the first one in, you should put your name on the list ahead of time. I called the sale conductor, who said by 10:30, everyone should be able to go in without waiting.
In addition to the mid century styles at this sale, there are some first edition books signed by the author and for mad scientists, lots of old chemistry and text books. The estate sale at 9700 Kedvale runs Friday from 9 to 2 and Saturday from 9 to 3.
