The Estate Sale of the Century

Just returned from what I heard at least a dozen people describe as the estate sale to end all estate sales in Arkansas. Roy Dudley Estate sales was hosting a preview party, at #6 Armistead in the Heights, for the living estate of Mr. and Mrs. Sterling Tucker, an Arkansas family whose roots apparently go all the way back to Arkansas Post. The Tucker's, seemingly, have kept everything their family ever collected going back to the 19th century and spent their entire lives collecting themselves. Pretty much anything you could imagine--antiques, silver, fine art, vintage dresses--they had it. Here's a pretty broad rundown

I stayed away from all the finery and dug around amongst the old toys and weirdness in the attic. Here's what I came away with:

plastic toy pipe organ
Solid State portable record player
60s "How and Why" books on Rockets and Atomic Energy
a foot-tall plastic anatomy doll (with original small AND large intestine!)
giant poster of unknown (to me) French actress astride a motorcycle

Total score.

Runs from Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5, and Saturday, 10-3.
