And what a lovely estate this is ladies and gentlemen! I'll get to the goodies in just a moment. I simply must share with you Alison's Zehr's amazing life! When Ty and I arrived to do the walk through, the entire visit just felt good! We all talked and walked the estate and figured out the game plan. As we (Ty and I) begin to delve into the estate, we began uncovering, art, jewelry, sterling, vintage hats, sheet music, etc. But then folks began telling us little tidbits about Alison.

Hence the name of this sale, LEVEL UP! After learning about her, I'm convinced I must LEVEL UP! I must and will do better. I will help more. I will try and help as many people as I can. Even if its simply water to a thirsty woman or food to a hungry soul. I am forever changed. Thank you Alison Zehr, Goddess of Rogers Park!
