News broke just last month that Sally Quinn, owner of the famous Grey Gardens estate in the Georgica section of East Hampton, found a buyer for the property after putting the home on the market for almost $20 million in February of this year. It was last on the market for just under $18 million, though Quinn did not reveal the price that the estate would be selling for.
Quinn also announced recently that she would be hosting an estate sale for some of Big Edie and Little Edie’s furniture, which was included when she and her late husband, Ben Bradlee, purchased the dilapidated home in 1979.
The estate sale finally happened this past weekend, and it brought hundreds of people to the historic property, reports Bloomberg. According to the original report, people started lining up at 4 a.m. to get a first peek inside—even though the sale didn’t start until 10 a.m.—and they were all required to wear booties over their shoes in order to detract from any unwanted mess.
Prices of items ranged from $1 to almost $800—including everything from dinnerware to wicker furniture and items from the women’s every day lives.
Quinn also made sure to flag some of the notable rooms in the home so that guests could see the history first-hand.
