Birds Of A Feather Estate Sales sort through items at the former home of Frank and Lillie Mae Green, lifelong residents of North Georgia and Gainesville, and the original owners of Green's Grocery Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, as they prepare for an estate sale of the items.
Tucked behind a few pine trees on Blue Ridge Drive Northeast in Gainesville sits a brick, ranch-style home. Five small, white columns support the awning over the front porch. There are black shutters on either side of the windows and a carport protecting a 1992 Cadillac. It’s the home where Frank and Lillie Mae Green, Gainesville business owners and philanthropists, modestly lived before they died in 2008 and 2018, respectively. That house is empty now, except for all of the items they left behind.
