Looking for a tremendous treasure for your home or some amazing Christmas gifts? Head to our next big Fort Washington estate sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 15-16 at 12905 Heather Circle in Fort Washington, Maryland. The owner is an amazing man – a World War II veteran – with a home packed with items he and his wife obtained over the course of some 40 years. (Can’t blame him for wanting to move to a warmer place.) Several rooms of the house were designed by a decorator who did work for the White House.

You’ll find everything from modern mid-century furniture to a workshop and garage full of tools. In between is everything from folk art and fine clothing to hand-assembled doll houses and grandfather clocks. We will also be baking cookies and serving coffee and other treats throughout the day.

View an extensive photo album at www.facebook.com/orionsattic. The list of items up for sale is too long to completely cover here but a partial list follows. Note that no one will be allowed to enter the home before 9 a.m. each day. Shoppers arriving before 9 a.m. are welcome to stand in line. Credit cards are accepted. We’ll add more to this list and the Facebook photo page as the week moves along. Come see us at this big Fort Washington estate sale!
