Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Conyers, Ga. - Jul 10, 2017 - Props, sets, costumes, furniture, an Airstream trailer and other assets used during the production of a popular television show that ran for four years during prime time will be sold to the public starting on Thursday, July 13th and continuing through Sunday, July 16th.
Some of the items will be sold at a fixed price, as a tag sale. Others will be offered to the highest bidder, without reserve. In an unreserved auction, everything sells, regardless of the final price.
The event will be held in Conyers, a suburb of Atlanta located just east of the city, off Interstate 20. For security and other reasons, the name and address of the venue can’t be revealed until the day before the sale, on July 12th.
Bidders, buyers and collectors, however, will forgive the secrecy surrounding the sale once they realize what is being offered – the contents of a 40,000-square-foot warehouse that’s brimming with the very items that have made Hollywood and TV memorabilia a hot genre of collectibles.
America’s fascination with celebrity has translated into the collectability of TV and film items soaring in recent years, especially in Atlanta, which has been dubbed “the Hollywood of the South” due to the massive influx of film studios taking up residence in and around the city.
The event is being hosted as a collaborative effort by three entities: Ahlers & Ogletree Auction Gallery, Peachtree Battle Estate Sales and A New Beginning Estate Liquidations, all of Atlanta.
Start times all four days will be 10 am Eastern time. On Thursday and Friday, July 13-14, items will be sold in a tagged retail sale environment, with some of the items pulled aside for the auction component on Saturday, July 15th. Then, whatever remains will be sold at auction on Sunday, July 16th, with items offered at a very quick pace, in the warehouse, by an auctioneer.
This will be a live, on-site event, with no internet bidding. Phone bidding will also be permitted.
