They built this home in the 1960s. He was an engineer with Bell Technologies and a ham radio operator. She worked with Piedmont Federal and was an excellent seamstress. They loved to travel. There are family connections with the Huntley Furniture Co. (organized in Winston Salem in 1906 and later merged with Thomasville Furniture.)
If you are looking for furniture, this is your sale. The furniture is mostly from Huntley and Thomasville, beautifully maintained. There are at least 8 chests of drawers, 2 vanities, several tables, 2 china cabinets, chairs, footstools, desks and bookcases. There is a piano, a set of wrought iron furniture, lots of Italian wood, sconces, small shelves, boxes, trays, and decorative hardware. There is ham radio equipment, mid-century barware, milk glass, a washing machine, lawn care equipment, garden tools and flower pots. The vintage linens and clothing are in great condition, including a fur coat, men’s clothing with that ‘70s vibe, at least 6 pieced quilts, an assortment of vintage pillow covers, embroidered pieces and more than two dozen aprons!.
They were good friends with artists Earline and Joe King (also known as Vinciata) so there is an original oil, several numbered prints (look for the cast with the castle sketch) and other King memorabilia.
