Last night was the ribbon cutting, and the community couldn’t have been happier!
Businesses are finally coming back to the long delinquent 13th Street corridor. The opening last night was an upscale Auction House named …………
The Auction House is right at the FEC RR tracks and NE 13th Street.
The room was packed, (the free draft beer, wine and snacks help !) and the ribbon was cut just in time for the fun two-hour auction that followed –
Those are the proprietors on the left, Rachel and Ray (yes, like the Chef), Mayor Seiler with the big scissors, former LakeRidge President Shannon Harmeling, President of South Middle River, Lawrence Rosen Jackson, and yours truly!
They had gads of neat, different items –
A lot of pricey things for sure, but I made off with a fancy Chinese planter for just $50!
Former SMRCA President Sal Gatanio waited to the end for item #72 …..
… a one of a kind – bust of Romeo – entirely made out of nuts and bolts! Sal dug deep for the piece – $600 – but said it was a gift for his Romeo and worth every penny!
……… Curiosities has their auctions on Wednesdays, but are open daily to inspect the merchandise from 12 to 4 … to get more info, give Ray a call on his cell … 310-291-1626 ….
