There are so many wonderful pieces at this sale - Danish Teak, Mid-Century art prints, pottery, crystal, books, and paintings.

This is the estate of Gerry Franks. He was a wonderful man who lived to be 96 years old. Coincidentally, he was one of my tenant's back in my past career as a property manager of commercial office properties . . .that was 15 years ago, and Gerry was 81 year old then! He lived a long and full life and has left behind many beautiful things that he has procured throughout the years.
