Sally will do anything to get an offer on her house.  Anything.  Just give her a 10 minute warning before visiting the house so she can slip into something more comfortable.

More Exposed Toilets

February 12th, 2014 · 7 Comments

Yesterday’s post with the bathroom with no walls was very revealing.  Literally.  Two of our readers found more exposed toilets.

Thank you, Orangeena, for spotting this toilet in a Cleveland, Ohio home.  The toilet is in the dining room??  Convenient for Taco Bell night?  No doors.  No privacy.  And right next to the stairs too!!

C.H. found this exposed toilet in Gretna, Nebraska.  Probably a basement bathroom.  It’s next to the laundry area.  There’s a coffee can on the toilet tank.  For cigarette butts?

And there’s yet another exposed toilet in the bedroom upstairs!  Buyers will be flushed with excitement and the seller wiped out from all the showings.

It’s Not a Trick, It’s a Treat

October 18th, 2013 · 15 Comments

This delightful home in Penfield, New York was discovered by one of our readers.  We are eternally grateful.
Take it all in.  There’s lots to see.  [Click on the photos to expand]

Let’s start with the Raggedy Ann theme room.  Hundreds of dolls.  Plus a mannequin.

Grinch Who Stole Christmas mannequin!  Classic.  Plus Cabbage Patch dolls, Christmas dolls, and many more dolls.

Doll clothes.  Halloween theme dolls.  More dolls.  Take notice of the mannequin in the foreground.  We’ll explain in the next photo.

The mannequin is supposed to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.  See her ruby slippers?!  There’s also a collection of jugs on each stair riser.  We’ll see more jugs on another staircase later.

A bedroom filled with stuffed animals, jewelry, quilts, and more.  Now imagine this house totally empty.  The rafters in the ceiling.  The hardwood floors.  The vaulted ceilings.  This house is really nice.

There’s a lovely lady mannequin holding undergarments.  Notice the E.T. doll in the basket of toilet paper.  That’s because he visited Uranus?  There’s another E.T. doll on the shelf to the right.

Another view of the bathroom.  We have proof that someone actually used the bathtub (photo on wall).  There’s a bedpan on the wall too.  And the world’s smallest plunger that’s guaranteed to get your hands wet.

The kitchen has a sign that reads, “Two Choices:  1. Take it  2. Leave it”  There’s a ghost hanging on the lamp (left side).  A black cat (right side).

Another view of the kitchen.  So much to see.  The house was built in 1847.  This kitchen would be so cool once empty.

The dining room is managed by two mannequins.

We’re halfway through the photos.  Much more to see.  Another mannequin!  And wearing the latest fashion.  Halloween decor.  More jugs.  More clutter.

Looking to the side, we see another mannequin!

This is the Ladies Room, filled with pink flourishes.  Pink Christmas tree ornaments.  Tea is served at 4.

Looks like another tea set in another room.  And lots of dolls.  And another mannequin, this time holding a parasol.  Hats and clothes.

The other side of this room.  A mannequin sitting in a chair.  More dolls.  Christmas trees.  Now imagine this room empty.  The beautiful wood floors.  The fireplace.  The tin plate ceiling and crown molding.

Another room filled with stuff.

Safety Issues

May 26th, 2013 · 1 Comment

The doll collection is bad enough, but the electric sub panel with exposed wires in a child’s room is a safety hazard!!  Right next to her pillow!  What were these Mount Vernon, Ohio owners thinking?!  [click to expand photo]
