Re: Christie's Reagan auction

Apparently???

The Readan Library has the real treasures GIVEN to the Reagans.  Their personal belongings?  Well, what do you do with them if your inheritors don't have a use for them?  Most average folks yard sale things or put them on consignment.  Nancy's things were more costly and would probably be auctioned off at an auction house.

Thanks for posting!  I was more tempted by the incredible items they had for the Joan Rivers sale, however! Smiley LOL

 

This stuff looks picked over.  It seems like their nicest stuff is going elsewhere!! Smiley Happy

Re: Christie's Reagan auction

There's  nothing apparently about it, it's a fact.   And it's not surprising at all.  The heirs of wealthy and famous people always do that.  They keep the things that are important  or precious to them and give other things  to museums and colleges to display and what's left is put up for auction.

Re: Christie's Reagan auction

according to this article the trustees of the estate made the selection with Christies.  i am not sure if that includes the children/family, the people/trustees/staff at the Reagan library, or both.
