COMING ATTRACTIONS ...

 

August ...

Bright Star Antiques Co. ... in Sulphur Springs.  On-Line Only Auction starting Thursday, August 24th.  Session 1.0 Auction starting Friday, August 25th.  Session 2.0 Auction starting Saturday, August 26th. 

You may think that Fred and I are referring to Ringling Brothers when we talk about THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH.  While I loved the circus growing up, its BRIGHT STAR ANTIQUES that has supplanted my love for clowns, elephants, and dancing bears ... with 19th century rocking horses ... concrete, leather, and candle mold pig and piglets ... and cute straw filled teddy bears.  Fred loves heading back through time to the earliest forms of transportation like the ... painted farm wagon ... a primitive goat wagon ... and a vintage metal bicycle prop (probably used to advertise a bike shop).  He even adds an old painted wheelbarrow to his list of transportation.  

Of course, Jay couldn’t possible do one of his iconic auctions without a wide variety of advertising signs.  He collects only the best oil & gas signs along with soft drink signs.  But who could imagine he’d find signs for a horseshoe ranch, corsets, hardware, bakeries, a carpenter’s shop, Pennsylvania Shoe & Boots, butter pretzels, and a double sided real estate sign.  Industrial pieces are just as hot as the advertising signs which means Jay didn’t pass on any examples of industrial racks ... wire baskets ... work tables ... or carts.

But what’s differentiates this action from his previous ones?  All we can say right now is ... IT’S BIG.  More details coming.
