No Rest for the Weary


We have been busy. Can you tell?

The Blacksparrow team had its first auction on Feb. 10. The Arthur Ronnie Collection: Books & Autographs was a nice way to launch. We are very proud of the catalog we produced, the reception we had for Arthur Ronnie, the exhibit we put up at James Gray Gallery, and the overall effort from everyone involved. A lot of people helped guided us and we are deeply grateful. We learned a lot from this first endeavor and we are heartened by what lies ahead. And we are already engrossed in our next projects.

So what’s next? Well, there’s Emerald City Comicon–the first official leg of the Hunger Games Costume Exhibit Tour. Joe Parrington and his team have opened their arms to us and we are energized to give them a great exhibit. Today, we picked out the mannequins that we will bring to Emerald City. We will have about 20 original costumes on display. All the main characters will be represented: Katniss, Peeta, Effie, Caesar, Gale, Seneca, Prim, and more. If you’re in Seattle, come see us!

We’re also working on two upcoming auctions: the Monsterpalooza Charity Auction and the Vintage Toys & Pop Culture Auction. Stay tuned for more news on these sales. We have some great things in store.
