PAC Shoppe Auctions ... in Dallas Saturday Evening.  Where do we begin describing Saturday night’s auction?  Fred and I have lots of favorites – the vintage bikes (the D.P. Harris Hardware Co. Rollfast Bicycle, the Hawthorne Gambler Bicycle, the 1952 Shelby Bicycle and others) ... the coin operated games ... the Wurlitzer Lighted Coin Op Juke Box Model # 1015) ... the Roadster Hot Rod Pedal Car ... the advertising tins ... the vintage tin toys ... the turquoise jewelry ... and the antique beds.  But the STAR OF THE AUCTION, and our No. 1 and 2 favorites – the Framed Confederate "Stars & Bars" Texas Battle Flag - Red River, Galveston, Sabine Pass, Chattanooga, Chickamauga, Franklin  - 3rd Texas Calvary AKA South Kansas-Texas Regiment ... AND ... the Vintage Crescent Cast Iron Coffee Grinder – Rutland VT.  I can’t imagine any collector not wanting to own treasures like these.  But the only way for that to happen is to make reservations for Saturday night’s auction or go on-line and place your best bid now.  Be sure to pay attention to your catalogue.  The next item up for bid is ...

Estate Sales & Appraisals by McNeil Liquidations ... in Oaklahoma City starting Saturday.  The Estate of Robert & Sue House of Enid, Oklahoma.   Matt and his staff have a beautiful (and incredibly full) estate sale this weekend that’s been moved from Enid, Oklahoma to Oklahoma City.  It’s a good thing too since the OKC location is better suited to accommodate the expected crowds from Oklahoma and surrounding states ... huge space ... no stairs ... and all the parking a sale of this caliber requires!  The exact location – the Mayfair Village Shopping Center north of SteinMart and south of Michaels.  By now you’ve probably browsed the gallery of pictures and know that this isn’t just any old estate sale.  Mr. House was an avid collector of breweriana.  His crown jewel ... a rare Budweiser chromolithograph advertisement “The Custer’s Last Fight” first distributed to taverns in 1896.  Don’t worry if you don’t get to this piece first, there’s hundreds of items to choose from in the collection

Extraordinary Oklahoma City Estate Sale ... starting Friday.  Very large sale moved offsite due to HOA restrictions.  Lifetime collections from three friends, one of whom is retiring and moving abroad and two who are downsizing considerably.  This combined sale truly has something for everyone.  All three friends were serious collectors with very different areas of interest. One has an enormous collection of sterling silver that includes 7 tea and coffee sets and 11 large sets of flatware.  The makers are Tiffany, Black Starr and Frost among others.  Another friend haunted the best auction houses and antique stores in the South.  She has decided to part with her late husbands Patek Phillipe watches along with a Rolex, several other watches, and some of her fine jewelry.  Her furniture and rugs are not to be missed.  There are fine American and English chests, cabinets, tables and sets of chairs.  She is also parting with her service for 20 of Herend's Rothschild Bird china with blue border as well as all of the matching serving pieces.  The third friend, who is retiring abroad, has a large collection of lifetime Piranesi engravings including a map of Rome done in collaboration with Nolli.

Parkhouse Antiques Liquidation ... in conjunction with Rusty by Design On-Line Auction in Dallas. Now through Tuesday, May 23rd.  Are you looking for “Farm Fresh” iron fencing (we’re talking old) ... vintage garden statuary (concrete animals, planters, and birdbaths) ... vintage patio furniture (tables, chairs, gliders, etc.), and cast iron farm implements, look no further than the Parkhouse Antiques Liquidation.  Rusty by Design has been commissioned by the owners to clean out the store on Parkhouse Street.  Expect the unexpected in this auction.  My favorite find was the industrial table with 2 metal ???s!  One is embossed with the Budweiser logo and the other with Coca-Cola.  So cool I’m sure to find somewhere to put them.  If you’re looking for something a little more upscale Fred suggests the chandeliers or the metal carriage lamp.  And if you’re looking for the creme de la creme you have to go for the 6 Bertoia wire chairs ... an antique balance in a case ... and custom upholstered wingbacks.
