Need a Rococo Gilt Mirror? Well Now You Can Take One Home from Music Hall

Last week, Cincinnati.com shared the news that the long anticipated sale of several artifacts from Music Hall will star on November 11, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. We are huge fans of the Wooden Nickel shop and regularly love to browse their architectural antiques. Here's the inside scoop on how to get your own piece of HISTORY!


For starters, the sale will be similar to a tag sale. The doors will open at the appointed time. And it works on a first come, first serve basis. The items will be tagged with a price. If see an item you want (and can handle the prices, OUCH) you purchase the item.



The guys at the Wooden Nickel recommended getting in line at 5:00 for the ticketed early-bird pre-sale. And NO, you can't get a free ticket by being a good customer...or a highly-persuasive person...the ticket sales go to benefit the restoration as the proceeds from the sale do too.

Here's what you can do though...for the first time ever, you can walk up to the ticket window at the Aronoff Center and purchase tickets to go into the Wooden Nickel warehouse.

The guys at the Wooden Nickel got a kick out of that.




Here are all the goodies on sale from Music Hall on the Wooden Nickel site for preview only.
