Do a YouTube search for an old Crazy Eddie commercial, click play, and substitute paintings, sculpture and photography for TVs air conditioners and electronics, and youll get some idea what to expect at the 12th Annual Avant-Garage Sale Expo. The venerable downtown gallery, which was on Fifth Avenue waaaay before Fifth Avenue was cool, is selling artwork, furniture, art books, décoreven two vintage book presses (if they havent sold already)all from gallery archives, and at surprisingly affordable prices. This years event includes a new component, The Art Exchange, which features art from private collections and estates. Prices for this weekends closing sale will be slashed even further to make room for new fall inventory. Or as Crazy Eddie might put it, Remember, we ARE NOT undersold, we will NOT BE undersold, we CANNOT be undersold! And we MEAN IT! Everything must GO! These prices are INNNNNSAAAANE!
