With the cancellation of the Amazon Prime TV series the Man in the High Castle, Burnaby’s Jeff Schwarz – dubbed the Liquidator – will be overseeing the sale of the show’s sets, props and more than $2 million worth of wardrobe from 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s.
The first of the sales was last month – this weekend Schwarz will be selling the rest at 4210 Phillips St. in Burnaby from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday.
“In addition to the massive onsite sale we are having on May 4th and 5th in 4 huge warehouses in Burnaby, we are now adding a live and online action component to make the event even more exciting. Collectors, treasure hunters and admirers of the show locally and globally can now simultaneously bid online, in real time, for these unique, sought-after items,” says Schwarz. “It’s not often such a broad array of rare collectables and just cool vintage stuff are brought up for bid. It’s a substantial and impressive collection.”
The online auction is at www.directliquidation.ca to register.
The show, based on a book by science fiction legend Philip K. Dick, offered an alternate history in which the Nazis had won the Second World War. The show’s timeline spanned three decades with historical sets of antiques and vintage pieces from that period.
Now those are all on sale.
“With over 80,000 square feet of goods, this TV series set sale is not to be missed” said Schwarz, an OLN reality TV star. “From movie props, wardrobes, antiques and authentic parts of history, we have it all.”
The sale features Japanese lighting, neon signs, thousands of antique furniture pieces and vintage props such as picnic coolers, clocks, TV sets, bicycles and more. Want to change your entrance? Try one of the shows many antique-looking doors.
Schwarz has been in business for more than 25 years buying and selling pretty much everything. His show The Liquidator ran in more than 100 countries over five seasons.
