Prize Possessions

Earlier this month, the super-chic West Coast designer Grant Gibson told me that he was cleaning house and preparing to sell some of his things at One Kings Lane  July 24 - 26. (Almost 200 items, to be more precise.) Grant has so many great vintage pieces but when he mentioned his silver trophy collection, my eyes got a little wider. I remember noticing how Grant accessorized with them in his tiny San Francisco apartment when the place appeared on HGTV years ago, and in past blog posts I've used a shot of the collection placed on his handsome antique secretary.

Other things to be sold include pillows, architectural prints, framed intaglios, old portraits, tables, chairs, lamps, rugs, and Grant's own photography. If you saw this post or read his blog, you know the images he captures on his travels are something special. 


For the uninitiated, the prices offered by One Kings Lane are seriously discounted. Click the pictures above to enlarge and see if you spot the prize awarded for Best Scottish Terrier or Best Exhibition Dancer at Stanford. Grant has always had a great sense of humor.

There comes a time when we need to part with everything. Until that time comes we purge constantly to lighten up.

I am SO excited for the sale!
Thank you so much for writing.
I am happy to sell things and have a new look soon. Still classic, but just updated. OKL is a great way to have a HUGE tag sale!
