QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS SALE:
For a better response time, don’t email questions. Please call or text instead. We are at a sale house and not in front of a computer, so we don’t see emails ’til WAY later. We’d love to have a better chance to help you!
THIS WEEKEND!!: On Saturday, March 23, we will be selling the following instruments and stage gear which belonged to the legendary Bob Hayes. It will be a ONE DAY ONLY sale at the same location as last week’s house sale. Each item will be priced and available for immediate purchase. We will also be accepting written offers of any amount.
We do not have specific plans for reductions in price. It is possible that John will lower the tag price of various pieces as he sees fit during the afternoon… but will be taking any written offers into consideration when deciding those discounts.
After we have closed for the day, we will communicate all highest offers on any remaining items to the Executor of the Estate. After our client has had time to consider those offers, we will be contacting the appropriate “winners.”
If you have any questions, please contact John at 501-607-4747 - text messages are preferred so that he can keep track of who contacts him about which pieces more effectively. Please help spread the word to all his friends and fans!
