Cartoonist Chris Browne passed away early this year, now much of his, and his wife Carroll who predeceased him by a few years, estate is going up for sale.
Now 10 months after his passing much of his estate is going up for sale at his home on Garfield Drive. The house is full, and I mean full, some Hagar the Horrible related, some not. But there is lots to see and lots to sell.
“Everything is priced in the house, said Debi Fujan, owner of Estate Sales by Debi. “You grab a bag, a shopping bag, and you shop it like you would a boutique or a store. We have a till up front, and you just pay for it and out the door.”
Chris was a collector of unique items, room after room is filled. From Beatles memorabilia, to ornate furniture, to jewelry to kitchen items, everything is for sale. Of course the big sellers will be some of the original artwork.
The 4 day sale begins [this morning, December 6] at ten. Here is a link to the estate sale website with pictures of some of the items.
Which us an understatement – there are hundreds of pictures showing thousands of items.
