‘A lot of interest’ in the Zelman’s sale

WICHITA — The sale of the contents in the former Zelman’s building starts at 8 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and ends at 5 p.m. the first two days and 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The sale will be conducted out of three areas on the corner of Douglas and St. Francis.

“We’ve had a lot of people . . . poking their heads in,” says Becky Leason of Becky’s Estate Sales. “There’s a lot of interest.”

Wey Mansion estate sale is Tuesday

The mansion is the one known for having over-the-top annual Christmas displays.

Not surprisingly, holiday items will be a big part of the sale.

“There’s more than I’ve had in any other sale . . . that’s for sure,” Ghan says.

That includes some bargains along with some unique items, such as the thronelike chair Santa Claus used to sit on at the old Innes Department Store.

“That’s a really cool piece,” Ghan says. “There’s been a ton of interest in that chair.”

There are all kinds of other items not related to Christmas, such as a parlor set that Ghan says came from the former Gill Mortuary.

The sale starts at 8 a.m., but you can go at 6 a.m. to get a number for entry into the house when it opens.

The house is for sale as well.

The owners have moved to Indian Hills, and the house is on the market for $699,999.
