Thursday, August 8, 6 – 8 p.m.
To warm up for our Fabulous Floridiana Auction on August 10, noon to 2 p.m., you’re invited to the museum to mix and mingle with other collectors and fans of all things Florida and get an up-close look at the treasures we’ll selling at a fun and exciting live auction.
Enjoy refreshments and a cash bar while you check out these now-retired display props: a plethora of one-of-a-kind treasures, ranging in size from 6 inches to more than 6 feet, that spell out the wild, wacky, and wonderful state we’re in. We’re talking about everything from alligators to egrets, from massive manatees to a compact King Kong. Proceeds benefit the Historical Society and support History Center programs.
Please note that most of these props or models go back to the museum’s opening almost 20 years ago; they must be sold “as is,” so you’ll want to check them out before bidding. All items are props and models used within the exhibits of the History Center. No items were or are part of the Historical Society’s historical collection.
Auction conducted by Alan Frenkel Auction and Realty, License numbers AB3436AU1522. A 15% BP (buyer’s premium) will apply to all sales.
