Milwaukee, WI – May 20, 2019 – The historic Pabst Mansion is cleaning out their attic (and basement and kitchen too!) and holding a huge Outdoor Estate Sale on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The event will be held rain or shine immediately across the street from the Pabst Mansion at 2000 W. Wisconsin Avenue in the Pabst Mansion parking lot. Attendees will reap the benefits of the Pabst Mansion’s spring cleaning and will find unique items for purchase including architectural fragments parceled from lost Milwaukee buildings, antique furniture, framed artworks, decorative objects, Christmas décor, glassware, breweriana and much more! Avid antique collectors, Milwaukee history buffs, college students and fans of estate sales will all be sure to find a treasure! Items are priced from $2 up to $1,500.

Milwaukee favorite Crafty Cow, will be heating up the grill from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from Crafty Cow MKE sales will be donated to the Pabst Mansion.

When Pabst Mansion President Pamela Williams-Lime was asked why hold an Outdoor Estate Sale she replied, “After opening our doors as a historic home for tours 40 years ago, our focus has been to secure decorative arts furnishings and artwork that are original to the Pabst Mansion. Through the generosity of our donors and Pabst family members, many pieces have returned to the Mansion. Among the items available for sale are fine art, decorative objects and furniture that had been on display but have since been exchanged for the original pieces now on view.” She added, “Other items included in the sale are a range of objects including pieces used for exhibits and items from holiday displays such as the mechanical Dickens’ characters from Milwaukee’s Gimbels’ Christmas windows. This is also an opportunity to clean out our attic, kitchen and basement of contemporary and vintage pieces no longer in use. We thought just for fun we would also add a cookout with Crafty Cow to the event too!”
