Historic estate sale on Overland Avenue brings the neighborhood together

I just returned from historic Haines estate on Overland just north of Pico in Rancho Park.


According to RanchoParkOnline.com member Overland Avenue, the Haines have owned the house since it was built in 1930 when there was a dirt road in front.


There were a lot of treausres as the owner Craig and his wife seemed to be into a lot of different artistic pursuits.


There was intricate woodworking, hand-powered drills, pastels and paintings. Inside there were large pieces - an antique secretary's desk, chairs that needed reupholstering and other finds in different states of perfection.





I left with eight 45s from greats like the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Them, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. I don't know what I'll do with them. But they are beautiful. Just like the scarpbooking, jewelery-making stuff that came with the organizer I bought.


But the most valuable takeaway were the Overland Avenue neighbors that I met. A handful of them were there (some with bloody Marys) helping Craig sell his stuff and putting tarps on everything whenever it sprinkled.

Thanks, Eddie for highlighting the sale and the great photos you took, not to mention contributing to Craig's fund to help him on his new journey.  (It was actually Craig's grandparents who had the artistic soul -- his grandmother did the beading and ornaments; his grandfather did all the wordwork and a lt of the cabinetry).  The little wooden candle holders and trays with the initials "RH" were grandpa's work.  Yes, the Overland Avenue neighbors are pretty awesome!


Lisa, Senator Price's last year "Shero" (and always a heroe to the OAC!) and actress, along with the OAC's long distance runner, Caroline, worked diligently for the past few months putting this together during this very difficult time for Craig.   Thanks also to Shannon, who rallied the troops when, despite the morning rain, people started coming out.  Thanks to all the great neighbors, both on and off Overland who came, helped out, contributed dollars, and also to Jim & Terri with the Bloody Mary's!  


Eddie -- you got some great stuff!  Loved that organizer!  And vinyl is making a come back in a BIG way! 


Thanks again, to all who came out!
