Midcentury furniture mega sale in Philadelphia this Sunday – 53 photos!

vintage furnitureThanks to reader Jennifer who tipped Pam off — via our Facebook fan page — to this massive mid century, retro and vintage furniture sale this Sunday in Philadelphia. I envy anyone who lives close enough to attend. As I read their craigslist post (now gone) and looked at the photos of what is included for sale in this 3,ooo square-foot space, I had to sop up the drool coming from my mouth! Heidi — one of the people in charge of this sale — said that all of these treasures have come from several estates, and they are having this sale to “clean house” and make room in their building. This sale is only three hours long– I predict it will be a madhouse. Thanks to Heidi for letting us feature these photos so everyone across the Retro Renovation Nation could ogle them enviously.

Broyhill Brasilia hutch

I have a gorgeous Broyhill Brasilia hutch just like the one above — hopefully on Sunday this classic beauty will find a good home.

Broyhill Brasilia Commodes

Ditto on those Broyhill Brasilia commodes! It looks like they might have a few pairs at the sale…

    If you go to the midcentury warehouse blog, there’s an email address for Heidi, you can be put on the mailing list and notified of future sales.

  2. BlueJay says:

    Oh wow! Both are awesome finds! Record cabinets are apparently tough to find; they’re even tougher to find them at reasonable prices!

  3. Jamie D says:

    This place in Kutztown has loooooads of stuff at very low prices. GRQ Used Furniture: http://grqusedfurniture.com/.

    There’s SO much amazing stuff that isn’t on the website. You’d really need to see it in person.

    I went there on Friday and scored a Broyhill Emphasis headboard for $25!

  4. Jamie D says:

    Oh, I’m not sure I was clear – I found the Mayan dresser for all y’all who are interested in it. I did not buy it for myself. Somebody go get it! It’s in decent shape for only $85.

    I just had my secretary grab some paper towels so I could wipe up the drool on my desk..keyboard…and floor. Unfortunately, no doctor was on hand to put my eyeballs back in their sockets. This is the best collection of stuff for sale I have ever seen in my life under one roof…..jealous of all who can go.

  6. hi kate- i am working on a project- 10,000 pages of drawings.
    i searched my name and found my painting in one of your 53 photos above- I am just interested how you got it—
    just came by to say hi and thank you for posting.
