LOCKPORT, NY-- The three day estate sale for over 3,000 items from the vast collections of Buffalo attorney Charles Rand Penney opened Friday at the Kenan Center in Lockport.
Organizers say Penney, who inherited his wealth, traveled to 75 countries and collected items ranging from costumes to furniture to paintings, posters, and even coat hangers. It was all stored in rented office space in Lockport.
Some items like paintings have been donated through the years to local art museums. But there is much more to be found at the estate sale according to Attorney Gerard Hogan who served as executor for the estate. Penney passed away last year at the age of 87. He requested the proceeds benefit his nieces and nephews as well as some local institutions.
The sale runs again Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM and then on Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM.
