Silver Spring MD “Tool Time” estate sale set for April 20-21

Apr 17, 2013 by

This is one of thousands of tools for sale this weekend

We had a great turnout last Tuesday at our newsletter subscriber-only advance sale but even that didn’t make a dent in the bounty of good stuff stored inside the home of our next estate sale. The regular sale is set for this Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2028 Forest Hill Drive in Silver Spring. [See hundreds of photos on our Facebook page.]

If you’re a tool guy or gal, you may faint when you come to our Silver Spring MD “Tool Time” estate sale. We’ve never seen so many tools in one home in our lives.
