Trinkets & Treasures

The semi-annual Trinkets & Treasures sale in Lake Bluff on September 20, 21 and 22, 2019, is going to be bigger and better than ever.

The event is hosted by Beyond the Bluff Conducted Sales, Lake Bluff History Museum and two New York stylists who will be offering an entire household of unique antique and vintage home furnishings curated from around the world.

The stylists relocated to Lake Bluff in 2016 when they purchased an architecturally significant David Adler manor home, which they completely renovated. During the process, the two scoured antique stores, flea markets and estate sales for an eclectic mix of primitive art, French and English antiques, taxidermy, mid-century modern furnishings, and more.
Once the home was beautifully restored and exquisitely furnished, they were left with many treasures that didn’t fit with the new décor. They partnered with Beyond the Bluff, a premier facilitator of estate sales, to hold an estate sale on the property in July, which was an overwhelming success.

But it wasn’t the end of the overflow. When trucks recently arrived with even more furnishings, art and accessories from the stylists’ former home in New Jersey—including circa 1950s-60s clothing from Celine, St. Johns, Dior, Chanel, Gucci and more — the decision was made to hold another sale, again partnering with Beyond the Bluff and also including the Lake Bluff History Museum. A portion of the event’s proceeds go to the Museum.

Trinkets & Treasures also will include jewelry, art and Lake Bluff memorabilia from the Museum, which will offer items from its private collection as well as treasures donated by docents and supporters.

Trinkets & Treasures will be held inside the former PNC Bank building at 120 E. Scranton Avenue (across the street from Lake Bluff History Museum and Lake Bluff Library) on Friday, September 20 from 9 am to 4 pm, Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22, 2019, from 9 am to 3 pm.

More information, including photos of many of the items that will be for sale, will be posted in the near future at Beyond the Bluff Conducted Sales on estatesales.net. Photos will be added as the sale date nears.
