The Glorious ’80s Time Capsule House Is Having An Estate Sale

All this could be yours. Except for the white overalls. Those were burned.

All this could be yours. Except for the white overalls. Those were burned.

You may remember our post about a month ago of a home on the market that captured an era so perfectly that it just stunned the Internet. We were in love with “the ’80s house,” as we called it around the office. Now anyone can own a piece of what makes the house so stunning, because tomorrow and Saturday, the owners are having an estate sale.

Don’t worry: the couple who lived there are fine. Holding an estate sale doesn’t mean that you’re dead. People also use estate sale companies when downsizing and getting rid of most of their stuff: our source tells us that’s what is happening here. The owners are moving to a smaller home that will also be impeccably decorated. We assume.

This style of furniture and art is actually called “Memphis Style,” as opposed to “1989 mall food court,” “early ’90s teen sitcom set,” or “where Amy Schumer’s ’80s Ladies (auto-play video at that link) live.” If you live in the area and/or are especially dedicated to this style, here’s where you can find the sale. The company running the sale also has a site, in case you don’t want to take our word for it.

12 Contessa Court, Williamsville, NY 14221
Friday, August 7 and Saturday, August 8, 9 AM to 4 PM

The estate sale site shows off some details that either weren’t shown or that you may not have noticed in the original real estate listing photos, like this stained-glass window and this cat sculpture.
