Estate sale was a near sell-out

Hello Bloggers,

Some of you have called asking how the estate sale of two historic Bremerton families went. The sale for the King and Benbennick families took place in the family home on Burwell Nov. 5 to 7.

I wrote about it here:

Contained in the sale is an almost untouched collection of burnished mahogany furniture, silver, jewelry, Persian rugs, delicate linens, a Native American basket collection and hand-painted china.

Mike Wall, the appraiser handling the sale, got back to me since and reported the event was nearly a sell-out, and that the estate will be delighted. There is only one niece remaining, in Tennessee, and some various and sundry extended relatives.

I had my doubts about the sale, I admit. Parking is almost impossible there,

And so, the final chapter, complete.
