This spacious home is packed with high quality furniture & items collected over a lifetime. The sale will be held Friday-Sunday, October 26-28, from 10am-4pm each day.

NOTE: Please follow our professional signage to guide you there from all major points. But be aware that Bee Cave does not allow signs within city limits. Therefore our signage will be posted just outside their limits with the Street Name so you will need to use your GPS to guide you there.
