Collin & Co. offers Wedgewood and more
SALISBURY — Collin & Co., the newly formed estate/tag sale business of Anne and Nick Collin, will hold its first estate sale this weekend, from July 1 to 3. The Collins have been running estate/tag sales for three-and-a-half years, most recently under the banner of Collin Forbes O’Brien. That partnership disbanded last year. After taking a little time off, Anne and Nick decided to regroup and get back in the business. They expect to fill the same niche with their new company as they did in their former foursome.The inaugural sale will be at Deer Run on Salmon Kill Road, the home of Ira Levy and Stan Gurrell.The neo-Palladian home was built by Levy and Gurrell more than 20 years ago. Over the years, they have added to an arboretum of uncommon conifers. It is considered to be one of the top five pinetums (a collection of pines) in the United States. Like the house and property, the contents of the sale are unusual and unique. Buyers can expect an eclectic mix of modern and antique, with marquee names such as Eames, Gray, Hoffman, Hepplewhite and Wedgewood. Levy and Gurrell have built a home in Maine and are now redistributing and changing the focus of their collection; hence, the sale.The estate sale begins Friday, July 1, with a wine and cheese preview benefiting the Salisbury Volunteer Ambulance Service from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person. Regular sale days are Saturday, July 2, and Sunday, July 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Deer Run is located at 94 Salmon Kill Road. For more information call 860-989-3918 or go to www.collin-and-co.com.
