The Great American Tag Sale is officially over but fans of domestic and style icon Martha Stewart who missed this one-of-a-kind experience have another chance to own some of her prized possessions. No ordinary tag sale, the two-day event on her expansive Katonah, property was an exclusive affair, which benefitted the Martha Stewart Center for Living at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

Pam Stone, owner and founder of The Benefit Shop Foundation in Mount Kisco, runs auctions from items donated and consigned to her auction gallery with profits going to local charities. She arrived late Saturday afternoon to shop the sale and bought out Stewart’s vintage poster collection, which came from Stewart’s Maine home originally built for and furnished by Edsel Ford.

Stewart and Stone got to talking at the tag sale about their shared interests and the end result was Stone went home with a lot more than just posters. At the weekend’s end, she and her team packed up seven truckloads of items from the tag sale that will make up a specialty auction on Wednesday, June 15, with proceeds benefiting Stewart’s center at Mount Sinai, which offers primary care to older adults.

“I came here to shop the tag sale and was thrilled to be able to assist Marth in extending the fundraising reach of her tag sale by expanding it into an auction,” Stone said. “We share a passion for philanthropy and Martha told me that she was delighted that I could take her items and give them a global audience in our online auction.”

Among Stewart’s items to be auctioned will be farmhouse style furniture that she personally painted, brightly colored braided rugs, and a myriad of items for the home she has designed and sold through her brands ranging from kitchenware to DIY goods. And, of course, that collection of vintage posters.
Specific details on auction highlights will be announced in the coming weeks.

The auction gallery is at 185 Kisco Ave, Suite 201. For more information, or 914-864-0707.
