Antiques auction to be held at CVIC Hall Sunday

Staff reports

The second in a series of three antiques auctions in Minden will be held a little differently this time.

During Roxanne Stangle’s first Tumblewind Antiques auction in February, she received some helpful suggestions for making this one better.

“We plan the preview from 10 to 11 a.m.,” she said, “and the auction, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.”

Last time, the preview lasted until 1 p.m., a little too much time.

“It went really well,” Stangle said of the first auction. “We were really pleased. We had about 150 people who looked, and 83 registered buyers for our first time.

“We had more positive than negative comments and lots of suggestions. We tried to incorporate almost all of them into this second event.”

Open for coffee and goodies will be the Nevada Gourmet Grocery store, located a few doors down the street from the CVIC Hall in Minden, where the auction will be held.

The same auctioneer will be in charge – he is Col. Ed “Bald Eagle” Cannell, who has done auctions for over 30 years.

The items in the auction come from Calli’s Corner, an antique shop that was in business on Curry Street in Carson City for about 12 years, Stangle said. The store is going out of business, and Stangle contracted to sell everything.

“We have lots of jewelry this time,” she said of the items for sale. “And lots of lamps, books. We have some Native American items and quite a bit of Oriental collectibles, and we probably have about 15 pieces of small furniture – bookcases, shelving units, wine racks.”

After previewing items, prospective buyers then take a number and a seat. The next auction will be held April 25. For more information, call Stangle at 782-2444.
