Gates Estates Returns to Ashland for a HUUUUGE event! So huge, in fact, it will be more than one in this great location! There are so many high-quality smalls that we will be breaking this up into a couple of different events and we will be using the "by appointment" option as well for both preview and pickup. This home belongs to a life-long collector and it shows. KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED AS WE CONTINUE TO ADD MORE "MUST HAVE" ITEMS TO THIS TERRIFIC EVENT! There are more wonderful things than you can shake a stick at but don't, please, there are so many fabulous finds you might hit one! Please be aware that this is a country home and you will not be able to park at the door but may need to walk the fairly level drive. This first event will be on the first floor only, as well, so that's good, right? Also, we have been working on this NON-STOP for a long time now and some of the photos show a yard at early Autumn; that is now no longer the case and some of the perennials have begun to show the passage of the season. Should you have questions about items in this event or any of the particulars concerned, please contact Tim Gates at 804-347-0453 or Tim@GatesEstatesLLC.com, thank you.
