The very talented Exene Cervenka, probably best known as the singer for the legendary punk band X, is relocating, which is great news for collectors, as she will be unloading (at least part of) her personal stash of pop culture relics, kitsch, and the like in a big Southern California sale. The sale is four days long and also includes pieces of her own artwork and punk rock and roll memorabilia.
On the sale’s site, she’s quoted as saying, “Calling all Betty Crocker Punk Rockers!!! 100 years of Americana needs good home. Treasured memories of the past can live on in your hands! Like a small inheritance, but without the squabbling with siblings!”
This once-in-a-lifetime sale looks to be pretty epic, here’s a peek of what will be available:
Vintage movie posters (Roller Boogie!):
More books, including pulp!
Musical instruments, including a pink guitar:
Punk rock era magazines:
Tons of vintage clothing:
Rock and roll (and other) ephemera and goodies:
Monkeys, dolls, doll heads, a plush clown, and more kiddie toys:
A tiara of hers!
Oh yea, and a black velvet painting of a clown crying, labeled “Sensitive Vintage Velvet Clown Painting”:
