Retirement is about taking time to enjoy all the things you’ve collected over the years, so here’s a huge opportunity to retire with style or expand on yours, starting with the finest of art and antiques.
Luis Porretta is retiring and this 2-day unreserved auction follows a 2-day preview of fine art and antiques from his retail store plus an endless ammassment of unique and exclusive collectibles you won’t find anywhere else. Many items will be sold by the boxful, so bring a big truck and you can walk right out the door with books, records, glassware, ornaments, knickknacks galore, including the store fixtures. Featured items include fine art, antique furniture, jewelry, flatware and china from the in-store display, plus some hidden island treasures from Vancouver Island Estate Liquidators cached collection of bygone sales. There are records and players, lamps and mirrors, curtains and carvings, canteens and decanters, vintage desks and armoires, porcelain dolls, an art deco radio and a STRESSLESS recliner to flop into at end of the day.
