Signs of Saturday: Antiques sale

One weekend each July a group of antiques and collectibles dealers hold a sale on Bonsall Drive:


It's in the front yard of one of Bonsall's original houses, a modest ranch with a welcoming tree-studded lawn.

There's the tools corner:

old and new tools

With stuff like this wonderful hand-made toolbox:


There are ducks:


And linens:

This great stove was already sold. (And in the back you can see the furniture area.)

I couldn't figure out what this is, even after reading the manual:

And may I say how much willpower it took to leave this gem behind?

Of course there's always tomorrow.

The sale continues on Sunday, but then this hallmark of summer in Malibu, which has been held for the last 40 years, will be history.

So join in on what has been a unique and lovely ritual. The address on Bonsall is in the top photo. Gates open at 9:30. If you go, drive slowly -- Bonsall is a rural street. And please be neighborly when you park.

See you there!
