Just ask the locals, Larry truly was a different dude. He had a certain swagger even before swagger was a word... Humble, Unique, cool, kind, generous and a little mysterious, maybe mischievous at times. These are just a few words used to describe him ….the hair ! Don't forget the hair! Boy he had some hair....that was his trademark. Everyone loved that mop. You couldn't miss it, it was thick enough two hide two screwdrivers , a cup of coffee, and some baling wire.
To us, he was simply Daddy and PaPa … We miss him everyday.
For the past 60 years, Larry and Clara would travel from auction to auction, flea market to flea market making stops along the way to buy anything that caught his eye. He had a passion for advertising and anything unusual. He liked to buy...he regretted anything he sold...so it was rare when he did. Clara had her love for Indian Rugs, pottery of all types, glassware, jewelry, and all types of collectible items.
Long before they passed, Larry would say " Kids, if anything ever happens to me, throw a pig in the ground and have an auction. Have as much fun selling it, as we had buying it."....Little did they know, there is no fun in this for us. We have conducted auctions for 20+ years for others, and boy this one hurts. We knew the day would come, it comes for all of us, but you are never prepared. They wanted our company to conduct his auction, he was proud of us. He is ultimately responsible for getting us into this roller coaster ride of a business. I'm still not sure if I am to be thankful or frustrated over that.
Due to the mass amount of items and just the plain emotional toll it has taken on all of us, we have the pleasure of working with two other auctioneers in the area, Kenny Cotham of Cotham Auctioneering and Christie Hatman of Christie Hatman Auctions. We could not do this without them. We are blessed to have them on board and to call them our friends.
It is with mixed emotions that we offer you part of what he collected over the past 60 years.....We hope you enjoy owning it as much as Larry enjoyed buying it...
Good Luck and Happy Bidding !
The Larry and Clara Taylor Family
