Join us this week for the estate of two fantastic long time dealers who have
been out of the business for over ten years. The passing of one gent led to the retirement of the other - but true to his inner dealer...he kept treasure hunting! Between the two of them - they amassed a staggering amount of stuff! We are starting with just the condo contents before we tackle their many storages... Many of you may have made their
acquaintance back in the 80s and 90s at various antique shows and the
larger fleas like Rose Bowl and Vets Stadium!
Tony and John were very well known for their restored vintage
luggage which featured vintage travel label. Their luggage was
featured in various national and local media and was absolutely
stunning! Both were always seen in Hawaiian Shirts (and boy do we have TONS) and Tony’s
boisterous and gregarious laugh was as readily shared as was his joy in making new friends! John was Tony’s business
and life partner and was quieter - but as equally kind and friendly! Along with their
luggage – both men were avid collectors and loved to shop for
vintage finds. This sale is but the tip of the iceberg as we have
massive amounts of stuff to liquidate from their various storages.
Both men loved estate sales and collectibles of al kinds - and
this is readily apparent in the eclectic art, vintage smalls, and
furnishings they accumulated over the years!
