John Brommel, “The Taxidermy King,” has passed away and The Corner Shoppe here in Austin is auctioning off nearly 1,800 lots, some of which include multiple pieces. Most is taxidermy, but there’s a ton of other stuff including antiques, statues, antlers, and much more.
You can bid online HERE, with auctions closing today (May 20th, 2021), tomorrow, and Saturday. Here’s an interesting find:
The “Real Human Skull Butterfly Sculpture” isn’t something you see every day. Or is it a skullpture? Hahahaha hahahaha LOL good one, Jeremy.
Some of the more pedestrian items, such as hides or mounts of plentiful and ordinary animals like whitetail deer, turkeys, etc are, at least so far and in most cases, extremely cheap (e.g. $5.50 high bid for a set of three whitetail hides). If you’ve wanted to decorate that man cave or office, this could be a great opportunity!
It was quick and easy to sign up on ProxiBid to start bidding, and it’s kind of fun to watch the auction live (which I’m doing right this moment). If you’re jumping in, good luck!
