Did You Miss Martha's Tag Sale? There's Still a Way to Shop Our Founder's Rare and Collectible Pieces
In April, Martha hosted her first-ever tag sale as a way to raise money for Mount Sinai's Martha Stewart Center for Living. The two-day event featured antique and vintage items from her own personal collection, including everything from full sets of china to a complete kitchen designed by our founder herself. Celebrities, fans, collectors, and the like flocked to the sale to get their hands on pieces from the multi-hyphenate's collection. But if you weren't one of the lucky ticket holders, there's still time to shop. The leftover items from the sale are now available via an auction hosted by the Benefit Shop Foundation.
Martha recently took to her social media pages to share the exciting news with her followers. She wrote in an Instagram post: "If you missed my Great American Tag Sale, here's another chance to check out some of the items still available! The Benefit Shop Foundation is holding an exclusive Estate and Tag Sale auction on June 15th!"

There are a handful of great finds still leftover from Martha's tag sale. All of the pieces currently available to bid on were sourced from the lifestyle mogul's various homes in East Hampton, Maine, Westport, Conn., and Katonah, N.Y.—where the tag sale took place. You'll find a range of incredible items, including Martha's clothes, unique rugs, a handful of vintage posters, furniture, lamp shades, candle holders, and even small knickknacks like these lobster claw crackers.
Some highly coveted pieces from Martha's personal collection were already scooped up at the event. For example, you won't find items from our founder's prized jadeite set in the auction, which went home with a handful of buyers—namely Blake Lively and Kris Jenner. In addition to her jadeite collection, Martha parted with her "beautiful green garden cart" during the April event, which was an item she said she was sad to part with.
The initial sale raised $800,000 for Martha's charity, and we're sure our founder is looking forward to seeing that momentum continue during the Benefit Shop Foundation's event. All items will be available for pickup in Mount Kisco, N.Y., or you can arrange to have your purchases shipped to you. Bidding has already started and you can register to bid on LiveAuctioneers website. Live bidding will begin on June 15.
