Martha's Tag Sale Features Hundreds of Rare and Collectible Pieces, From Jadeite to China
With a growing arsenal of stunning furniture, full sets of china, antique cabinets, rare art, and more, our founder is no newcomer to the collecting world. But even the biggest collectors have to part with some of their finds at some point—out with the old and in with the new, right? For our founder, that time has officially come. On Saturday, April 23 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Sunday, April 24 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.), Martha is hosting her first ever tag sale, which will feature her own furniture, tableware, art, linens, clothing, plants, decorations, holiday items, kitchen essentials, and more.
Although it's unclear whether Martha herself will be in attendance, she's been busy at work making sure the event goes off without a hitch. Our founder, along with the help of her event team, antique experts, and several celebrity friends has spent the days leading up to the estate sale filling rows of tables with incredible finds. "There will be something for everyone at the Great American Tag Sale! I'm selling thousands of items - furniture, tableware, kitchenware, textiles, lighting, bedding, rugs, vintage, antique, lightly used, and so much more!" Martha wrote on in an Instagram post.
A first glimpse into what our founder will feature at the event shows a plethora of wicker furniture, milk glass, piles of dinnerware sets in stunning patterns, outdoor iron tables, wheelbarrows, tins, and more. Martha is even selling items from her jadeite collection. The milky-green glassware dates back to the mid-20th century and was used as food storage before brands like Tupperware and Pyrex came into existence.
Tickets to the event are available on the sale's website and range from $25 to $250, with the most expensive tickets granting a first-look at Martha's collection. All proceeds from the estate sale go to Mt. Sinai's Martha Stewart Centers for Living, which provides primary care to older adults. The sale will be held at our founder's farm in Katonah, New York, but ticket holders should park at the John Jay Homestead (400 Jay Street in Katonah). From there, free shuttle service will be provided to the tag sale. Attendees should come prepared to show proof of vaccination, valid identification, and their tickets (which must be purchased in advance).
