Celebrity estate auctions can draw large crowds of fans.
You can find many a treasure at the average estate sale.
Celebrity estate auctions are no different.
According to a recent New York Post article titled “Zsa Gabor estate auction includes bling, four-poster bed,” one such auction drawing the attention of many is the estate of Zsa Zsa Gabor.
She lived to age 99 and died in 2016.
During her life, Zsa Zsa accumulated many possessions and famous friends.
Items actioned off include gowns, boas, jewelry, and furniture.
There were event items with special stories, such as an English saddle received as a gift from Ronald Reagan and a dining room table where she entertained famous men like Tony Curtis, Sammy David Jr., and Frank Sinatra.
A small item with a large story would be the driver’s license she failed to show the policeman who pulled her over in 1989.
The spunky 72-year-old woman was convicted of slapping the patrolman.
Although not all estate sales carry such famous connections, these items have stories of their own.
Once purchased, they will no doubt be involved in many more events to come.
Remember: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When making your financial, tax and estate plans, do not go it alone. Be sure to engage competent professional counsel.
