Greetings tag salers!! We are back after a brief summer break and boy are we back with a great sale!!! We are honored to be the company to bring you the estate sale at Dr John K. Lattimer’s Englewood home. Dr Lattimer (1914-2007) was a prominent urologist who received his degrees from Columbia University.
