A historic home and hundreds on antiques are up for sale in Litchfield, Connecticut on June 5 in one amazing sale. A circa 1830 Greek Revival-style home known locally as the Historic Trowbridge-Thoms House belonged to longtime antiques dealer Thomas McBride who did business in the property's adjacent red barn. At 81 he decided to retire finally parting with items he took a lifetime to collect. Around 1,000 antique items will be auctioned off.
The real estate broker for the home property is Mary Helen Levine of Litchfield Real Estate Auctions, LLC, of Litchfield and the contents of the barn/antique shop and home will be auctioned by Tim Chapulis of Tim's, Inc. "Anyone attending this auction will be stepping back in time. This is what you would have come upon if you had been on the antique trail in the 1950s or '60s," said Chapulis in a press release.
