Want a Piece of Ms. Moss?

Charlotte Moss, an award winning interior designer, author, lecturer, philanthropist, former wall street warrior, world traveler, socialite, etc., etc. is cleaning house.  Known for her refined blend of American and European classicism, Charlotte has seen and done it all.  Decorators accumulate so much.  From various trips, show house rooms, the several homes she has owned (two in Aspen, which truly speak to me), Charlotte will be auctioning off belongings at Doyle New York Auction House, March 7th.  A book signing of her most recent book, A Visual Life (her 8th), on March 5th kicks things off.  Read my post about the book here.
"I have been collecting and decorating for a long time and the time has come to edit, do some redecorating, and make room for new purchases of my own," commented Charlotte Moss about the upcoming sale.

How I would love to attend this auction.  I have written about the excitement of buying at auction, and while I am not sure this is the auction to get a great deal, they can be had.  Charlotte's auction has generated a tremendous amount of buzz, and I know many designers who are planning to attend, so I imagine the estimates will end up on the low side.  But here's a sampling of the riches:

There is a lot of things I could get very excited about, the collection includes 400 pieces ~ but alas, I will be unavailable.  I am a great admirer of Ms. Moss' work and her Aspen homes!  Did I ever tell you my story about her home on the west end that I used to ride by, not knowing it was hers?  If you cannot be there in person you can bid online.  Grab a paddle, or your mouse but be careful!  I wonder if anyone has ever gotten addicted?
