Good God, the Criswells Sure Did Collect a Lot of, Um, Things
The Criswells sure did collect a lot of cra ... I mean, stuff.
Wanna own a piece of W.A. Criswell? Or his wife Betty? Then clear your calendar and fill up your checking account, because Janelle Stone is holding an estate sale from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Criswells' former manse at 5901 Swiss Avenue, during which she's expecting to auction off a hell of a lot of valuables, among them: "Antiques, collectibles, fine china (six large sets), crystal (Baccarat, Val St. Lambert, antique, etc.), Meissen, Sevres, Baccarat, Limoges, Faberge, Sabino & other fine glassware. Extensive collection of Boehm birds and flowers, Doughty birds, rare sterling silver, silverplate, antique handbags, Orientalia, Oriental and French enamel, fine perfume bottles" and on and on.
In other words, this is where you come to get your Granny a Christmas gift. It's first-come, first-served. And there will be security guards. So don't think of trying to fly the coup with one of these.
