Sale Description:

Come join us this weekend in Glendale for a rare occasion to purchase Temperance memorabilia and dig through over 100 boxes of items. The sale is in the house, guest house, garage, detached sunroom, and entire backyard. There are hundreds of yearbooks and hundreds if not thousands of books throughout the property (many Temperance related books). This house is packed! We have had to move items outside into the backyard in order to make the house safe to hold a sale. The items in the basement have all been brought to the backyard as well as boxes that were stacked to the ceiling in the garage! Huge discounts on Sunday. It all has to go!
