I know there are a lot of bargain hunters out there, and this sale looks like it could have some hidden gems. It’s a big one, sent my way by a colleague here in the building, about a massive estate sale from AAA Estate Specialists out of Shreveport, LA.
It came our way too late to get into print.
Surprise, surprise: They have no Web site and no pictures, but this is going to be a wide and varied sale. If you’re an interpid antiquer, and don’t mind a bit of a chase, you could give them a call and see exactly what’t on the block.
My thanks to Susan Sliwicki.
MASSIVE ESTATE SALE IN LOUISIANNA
A massive estate sale in Robeline, La., promises to offer something for nearly every collector’s tastes.
Everything from movie theater equipment and cotton gins to glassware, toys, books and furniture are among the items up for sale from the historic W.W. Page Jr. estate, said Cindy Wilkinson of AAA Estate Specialists, the Shreveport, La.,-based firm handling the sale.
The sale is set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 7 and 8. To learn more about the lots and details of the sale, call AAA Estate Specialists at 318-393-0239 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. CST, Wilkinson said.
It will feature a variety of lots from the family’s businesses, which included the Sabine Theater, Vernon Theater and the Page Store.
A variety of scales, including ones used for cotton, meat and candy, are part of the sale. A water fountain and the general store’s oak counter/seed bin also are part of the sale.
“From the candy store there’s the concrete top, it’s a big rectangle, and they would pour the fudge on that and cut it. That’s pretty neat,” Wilkinson said. “I think it’d be a great island top in a kitchen.”
Movie lovers will appreciate the lots from the theater, which range from the Art Deco era up through the late 1950s to early 1960s, Wilkinson said.
“There’s lots of parts still in the box that were never used,” Wilkinson said.
Collectors of general store and movie theater type memorabilia will definitely want to see what they can see about this one.
