The Pataphysical Ron & Phyllis Estate Sale

(from Kevin & Leslie Patterson)
You are cordially invited to a unique Estate Sale for items collected by Ron & Phyllis Patterson.  Antiques, ornaments, clothing, jewelry, records, books, stained glass, folk art, dolls, collectibles, electronics, cameras, light fixtures, and other furnishings from their homes in Laurel Canyon, San Francisco and Novato.  
The Renaissance Faire grew out of Ron and Phyllis' aesthetic, interests and enthusiasms - and their personal items seem to be connected to their creative process in various ways.  This treasure trove has been in storage for years at our 7,000 square foot Red Barn Productions warehouse, and we soon must relocate to a new warehouse.
So the time has finally come for Ron and Phyllis' cherished belongings to move back into the world, and perhaps to act as points of inspiration in your creative efforts!  Join us in celebrating the creativity of Ron and Phyllis - and take home a piece of their personal world.  
Faire Family only:  pre-sale - Friday February 24, 10am - 4pm
           Saturday February 25, 10am to 1pm
Open to the public:  Saturday February 25, 1pm to 4pm
    Sunday February 26, 10am to 4pm
Location:  Building #143, Waterfront Av, Mare Island, Vallejo (overlooking the Vallejo Yacht Harbor)
Parking:  At the corner of Nimitz & 4th Street, as directed by Praetorian Event Services.   
GPS:  975 Nimitz Ave, Vallejo 94590
Note:  Please don't expect to find Faire crafts or old posters - these are happily part of the Faire Archive & Museum.  The opening of that in-the-works project is a future celebration you'll be invited to!
Thank you.   
The Patterson Family
