Your only chance ever to acquire something out of the eons-old estate of The Sisters of St. Joseph Convent here in Wichita. The nuns are downsizing a bit (as a lot of us are these days) and have entrusted us to help. You will not be disappointed.

There will be an ABUNDANCE of incredible, pristine, lovingly-cared-for items offered in this 7000 sq ft sale. As you can imagine, over the decades, much has been donated to this congregation. Highlights include a stunning 19th C Oil Painting by noted artist Peter Graham, Antique Arts and Crafts/Mission furniture, Asian antiques from their sister convents in Japan, Art Pottery, Religious Icons, Figurines, Gold & Diamond Jewelry, Paintings and other unusual, valuable and intriguing items. This is a rare thing indeed to get (and give at the same time) something from this charitable Wichita institution.


Photos of the sale are posted on our facebook pg ( Convent Sale 11/6-11/9 album) or see our listing for over 200 photos on EstateSales.org or EstateSales.net or the Wichita Eagle's classifieds or of course, our website: StubbsEstates.com.

Address:
3700 E Lincoln Wichita KS 67218 - use the service entrance to the Sisters of St Joseph Convent at Lincoln and Bluff and bear left. Designated parking available. Signs and people directing you to the sale entrance will be on site. No stairs! Very wheelchair friendly this time, we're happy to say. But NO public bathroom.

Oh Oh OHHHH!!!!! There will be a fun mobile coffee truck available. (they don't have a bathroom either - so be prepared) Sunflower Espresso will be on site to serve up some delicious coffee, espresso and other goodies. Yum!

This is going to be quite the event. Would love to see you there. Scroll down for a partial list of items.
