McNeil Liquidations of Oklahoma City ... The Estate of The Honorable Lawrence E. Wash (Special Prosecutor for the Iran-Contra Trials) ... in Nichols Hills, OKLAHOMA starting Friday.  This weekend Matt McNeil and his staff are liquidating The Estate of The Honorable Lawrence E. Walsh & Mary Porter Walsh.  If you’re getting a little tickling sensation in the back of your brain you may be remembering Mr. Walsh as the federal judge appointed Independent Counsel in December 1986 to investigate the Iran–Contra affair during the Reagan Administration.  He and his wife Mary, had a lovely home in Nichols Hills, Oklahoma full of incredible collectibles, fine art, and traditional furniture.  To view just how sumptuous everything is, browse through the extensive gallery of pics Matt has provided on his website.  Of if you prefer, visit his YouTube slide show presentation  complete with music.

Fred and I did our own “browsing” through the pics and loved what we saw.  The list of fine makers of china and crystal ... well-known furniture manufacturers ... and original art work from Texas and beyond ... defines what an exceptional estate sale should be. Couple the quality and the rarity of pieces available for purchase and you’ve got an event that’s a must-see.  We recommend you make arrangements to be in Nichols Hills, OKLAHOMA Friday morning early (numbers are being handed out at 7:00 am) to enjoy one of the best estate sale shopping experiences of the year!

Ralph Willard ... in Irving starting Thursday.  INCREDIBLE SALE ... small home with big examples of AMERICANA and BLACK MEMORABILIA.  All you have to do is check out the pictures to see what Fred and I are talking about.  When you drive up to the house you don’t expect to find anything like the 1920's Ronson cigarette lighter featuring a black bartending standing behind the bar creating an adult concoction ... or a black face cigarette holder ... or a myriad of black dolls ... salt and pepper shakers ... oil and vinegar cruets ... sheet music ... original oils and prints of blacks and by blacks.  The best collection we’ve seen in all the years we’ve previewed sales.

 

Then there’s great old furniture ... a 6-board blanket chest ... an antique storage chest that fits under the bed ... an antique washstand ... a Viking barrister bookcase.  Sitting on top of an antique chest, you’ll find framed autographed pictures ... Elvis Presley, Pearl S. Buck, Clayton Moore of The Lone Ranger fame.  This home is loaded with collectibles and antiques and there’s more.  The homeowner has a really good collection of books “about” his collections.  If you think the location isn’t main stream, remember, the contents of this sale aren’t either.  Collectors won’t be able to contain their enthusiasm ... and why should they?

M&C Estate Sales ... in Garland starting Thursday.  It’s a challenge to know where to start when you have a really cool sale like this one.  First, a little bit about the homeowners.  The husband was Seth Woods, Manager of the Briggs Ranches (one of the oldest established Santa Gertrudis operations in the country).  The 1st  Santa Gertrudis bulls were purchased in 1942 from the legendary King Ranch.  With that background you already can guess there’s plenty of great memorabilia ... pottery (custom made in Mexico and painted for Briggs Ranches) ... a 30's bedroom set with carved rifles on the head and footboards ... a large collection of vintage quilts (one dated back to the 1920's — Double Wedding Ring, and a fantastic crazy quilt) ... and a selection of rifles, shotguns, and a Smith & Wesson revolver.  That’s just the start, check out the pics and then check these things out ...
