Sunday, December 10, 9 am – 2 pm
(50% off!)

You are invited to peek into the collection of a remarkable man and friend (Pat D'Arco Hwy & Riverside Dr NE, Rio Rancho). At a young age, Sam traveled to Europe to perform tap dance and ended his adventures in New Mexico as retired from IBM. This home is immaculate with many perfect-condition items purchased in the late 1980s and early 1990s.


Unique and unusual treasures include a Japanese silverware set, vintage bar and serving ware, cool acrylic tables, eye-popping vinyl and electronics, and many bolos from across the Southwest. 

We recommend visiting this sale first on the weekend of December 8th, as the one-of-a-kind and many almost-new won't last until Sunday. We know that you will admire Sam's life as much as his friends did.

Although our prices are always fair, we will try to honor this family's estate with a profitable sale.
