Two of the Largest Prop Houses in San Francisco Auctioning 90% of Inventory

Due to the loss of their lease two major bay area prop houses are auctioning off 90% of their inventories this weekend (May 17-19) and next weekend (May 24-16).

Acme Scenery and The Prop House, two scenery and prop companies that have swallowed up much of the set dressing industry in the Greater San Francisco area are moving out. This means they have to get rid of most of their inventory fast and they are accomplishing that through a series of auctions.

You can view the auctioneer’s website for more information:
https://theyesco.com/current-sale/

Tens of thousands of items will be up for sale at their address:
100 Industrial Way, Brisbane, CA 94005

If you’re up in the area the next two weekends, you should stop by. You never know what may be available!

The list of items will include but not be limited to; refrigerators; stoves; washing machines; air conditioners; dishwashers; cooktops; venthoods; and more. They also will have items such as coin operated laundry machines and break room appliances.

It will be a loss to the set decor community no longer having all of these items in a single location. Their knowledge was an extra bonus to nabbing the appropriate piece. Of course, everyone is allowed to finally retire. Now is a chance for new homes to carry their torch (or pilot light in this case).

Some Good News and Some Bad News – San Jose Repertory Theatre Closes with an Online Auction

San Jose Repertory TheatreSan Jose Repertory Theatre has closed it’s doors after declaring bankruptcy. It is a major loss for the local community, where the theatre has been an integral nonprofit live theatre for 34 years.

As one can imagine 34 years is quite a bit of time to accrue sets, wardrobe, props and plenty of construction equipment are up for sale. Everyone who is interested should take a look at the auction page on the website www.WestAuctions.com where bidding will start August 12.

The building itself will most likely stay. Now owned by the city, officials are working to keep it open for the community.
