Grey Gardens Tag Sale!
Hurry, hurry! The most talked about Hamptons estate sale ever will be taking place this weekend. Yes, much of the furniture that once belonged to Big and Little Edie Beale, the notorious cousins of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, might be yours.
Think: wicker, tables, chairs, antique quilts and lace pillows, baskets, china, glassware photography. Not to worry, items were fixed up where needed by the most recent owners, the late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and his wife, renowned journalist Sally Quinn. Quinn, who had lived in the house since the couple bought it 38 years ago, sold it last month. It was last listed at $17.95 M.
The once in a lifetime estate sale is being run by Susan Wexler of Behind the Hedgerows who told hamptons.com that shoppers can purchase the handheld silver mirror that was featured in the Maylses brothers’ documentary about the eccentric mother and daughter. There is also an antique cigarette dispenser. “It’s just a treasure trove of history,” she told the site.
Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 3 West End Road, East Hampton. Parking at Georgica Beach.
