As Atlantans, we all have a bit of a sweet spot for vintage Coca-Cola merchandise. Who doesn’t love those classic metal signs, clocks and bottles?
Now’s your chance to own some of it, thanks to an estate sale running this weekend in Atlanta. The assortment accrued by Thomas Eskew is considered one of the largest Coca-Cola collections in the Southeast, and possible the nation.
People camped overnight outside of 843 Springdale Road in Druid Hills to be the first in the door at the sale, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Eskew amassed the collection during his time as an executive for an aluminum company. The home now has Coca-Cola signs, dispensers, clocks, thermometers, bottles and trinkets, gas pumps and globes, according to a press release about the estate sale. Some of the rarer items include two Coca-Cola bakelite radios from the 1930s and a Coca-Cola metal tire holder from the 50s.
“This is probably the most intense, largest sale we have done,” Pam Bulman with Estate Sales over Georgia told Channel 2. “We have been mobbed.”
Prospective buyers can also check out the Empire and Victorian furniture from the 1800s, antique chandeliers, early 1900s glass, antique mantle clocks and many more antique treasures. Oh, and don’t forget about the four caskets going for $500 a piece.
Thursday was the first day of the sale, which runs through Sunday. You don’t have to sign up before going.
