WICHITA — Janice Chambers is in the antiques business, but when it comes to selling the contents of her husband’s barbershop, she’s decided to let Hudson Auction handle it.
“He never threw anything away,” Chambers says of her husband, Don, who owned Hair Factor Barber Shop for 56 years.
“Oh, it was horrible.”
Don Chambers closed his barbershop after business March 21.
Most recently, the shop was at 1923 S. Hydraulic, although Chambers often made house calls for those who couldn’t visit him and volunteered to cut the hair of veterans.
Janice Chambers says it took three 18-foot trailers to move the contents for the April 6 auction. The 1 p.m. auction will be at 2009 N. Mosley.
There are all kinds of barbershop items for sale, including a couple of revolving barber’s poles.
“Everything under the sun you can imagine,” is how Janice Chambers describes what’s for sale.
