Sale promises quirky finds, deep discounts

Anyone experiencing withdrawal from being unable to visit Brandywine View Antiques as it readies its new location in Chadds Ford – or anyone seeking a one-of-a-kind bargain – will get assistance on Saturday, July 25, as the business holds a massive yard sale.

A yard sale will be held at Brandywine View Antiques on Saturday, July 25, in preparation for reopening at its new location in late summer.

A yard sale will be held at Brandywine View Antiques on Saturday, July 25, in preparation for reopening at its new location in late summer.

Owner Lisa Vonderstruck promises a front lawn at 1244 Baltimore Pike with a treasure trove of merchandise from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. She said the sale would help with ongoing preparations for reopening the shop.

“We have too many boxes, and we need to make room for our future, new vendors,” she said, adding that she is selling displays, furniture, and garden items – from up-cycled to recycled. “We’re excited. I just want to blow this stuff out of here.”

In addition, she said some of the items obtained when clearing out two estates recently don’t fit the eclectic mix planned for the new digs and will be sold at rock-bottom prices. “We’re treating this like a yard sale,” she said. “Lots of great bargains.”

Vonderstruck said customers would be able to walk the grounds – a spacious three acres – but the interior is off-limits until the grand opening in late summer. She said Al the Tool Guy, a retired schoolteacher who just celebrated his 80th birthday, would be setting up his wares at Saturday’s sale, and would be accompanied by his buddy, Allen, who would also have some quirky vintage finds.

She said she’s pleased with the progress on the new shop, which included ripping out carpeting, redoing floors, moving in display cases, and extensive landscaping. She said the three cats she adopted at her Pennsbury Township location survived the move and have been “living in the bathroom sink.

”

Vonderstruck said she can’t wait to be back up and running. “It’s been a lot of work, but we’re making progress,” she said.
