But sometimes those good buys come with a big ol’ helping of cruddy feelings about profiting at someone else’s misfortune.
Sure, I’m thrilled to own this mint-condition Louis Vuitton rolling luggage.
But yes, every time I go on vacation, I realize I look like a Kardashian because someone’s Aunt Edna kicked the bucket before she could take that round-the-world cruise she was planning.
Next week you can get all of the profit of a Going-Out-of-Business sale without any of the ick-factor at the Speed Art Museum. From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thurs. Nov., 8 and Fri. Nov., 9, the museum will be selling off a lot of their furniture and fixtures.
The museum is closing for three years during a $50 million expansion that will add a new wing by Kulapat Yantrasast, a partner at Los Angeles-based wHY Arcitecture, as well as transform the grounds.
From the news release:
We are having a sale and you are invited! Stop by the Museum next Thursday and Friday to visit our Sculpture Court sale. Items available for purchase include leather couches, shelving units, office supplies, brochure racks, chairs, tables, and much more. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.
Parking is available in the Speed garage. Visitors can enter the Museum through the main entrance, located closest to the parking garage. All sales are final.
*No artwork will be available for purchase.
And no, I didn’t add that last bit.
That was part of the email. So put down your checkbook and rebook your trip to Christies in NYC.
