On Saturday, October 22, Northgate Gallery in Brentwood, TN will host a living estate sale for the collected property of Tom T. and Dixie Hall.
Since Miss Dixie’s passing in 2015, Tom T. has been downsizing and simplifying his life, and is parting with most of the furnishings with which Dixie so lovingly decorated their home over the years. This auction will involve the sale of her many, glorious pieces of French antique furniture, rugs and floor coverings, paintings, jewelry, glassware, and other home decor items.
Also offered will be articles from Tom T.’s personal collection of memorabilia, including musical instruments, knives, belt buckles, statuary, and photographs.
All items up for auction can be previewed on Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the gallery on Mallory Lane in Brentwood. The auction will begin on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
Friends of the Halls will surely recognize many of the pieces detailed in the catalog, and also available in a printable format with estimated sales prices. An absentee bid form can be downloaded from the Northgate Gallery web site.
This is a rare opportunity to obtain pieces from the home of two of country and bluegrass music’s most influential songwriters, and among the most generous people ever to offer support to the bluegrass community.
