Thanks 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.
I have a gorgeous Broyhill Brasilia hutch just like the one above — hopefully on Sunday this classic beauty will find a good home.
Ditto on those Broyhill Brasilia commodes! It looks like they might have a few pairs at the sale…
If a lot of these pieces are priced close-ish to the “starting prices” listed in the ad, then there may be some good deals. The ad says:

I lost count — how many Lane tables are available at this sale?
Is that a Drexel Declaration dresser above? Nice.
Pam loves both of the retro tiki-bling dressers above. Does anyone know their maker? waaaaannnnnt neeeeeeeeeeeeeed
Anyone wanna pick up those webbed patio chairs for me? LOVE them.
They even have a vintage yard gnome — this is one cool sale.
Anyone else tempted to make a drive to Philly with a Uhaul and most of your paycheck this weekend? I know I am.
