Anyone who knew the late Judy Baar Topinka knows that she was an inveterate estate sale and garage sale freak. When you heard stories about Topinka's habit of haunting such sales through the years, you may have wondered just what she picked up and brought home.

Well, wonder no longer. Beginning today (actually it began at 10 a.m. on Thursday) there's an estate sale at the former Illinois comptroller's Riverside home at 380 Herrick Road. The annoucement we found online describes it as "massive."

So if you're in the neighborhood have a visit. The details can be found here.
