How Much Could You Buy in 15 Minutes?

March 18, 2011

Want new furniture for your Chicago home? How about scoring some from a former Chicago Bulls star?

When retired Bulls forward Scottie Pippen sold his Highland Park mansion in 1996, he left the 13,000-square-foot house filled with furniture, art and sports memorabilia.

Pippen's home

Can't imagine all the goodies that can be bought this weekend at Scottie Pippen's old digs.

According to the Highland Park Patch, it’s all going to be sold this weekend.

Pippen custom-built the house in 1994 and sold it two years later to a couple that recently passed. The couple’s children hired Sheryl Rue-Borden of Prudential Rubloff to handle the estate sale, which includes items from their parents and from Pippen.

There are items big and small, from clothing, pots and pans, DVDs, toys and china to designer purses, Lladros, TVs, furniture and art.

And, there is sports memorabilia signed by Michael Jordan and Pippen himself.

According to Rue-Borden, 25 people will be allowed entry into the home at a time, and each will get to spend 15 minutes shopping. Cash and credit cards will be accepted.

Fifteen minutes doesn’t seem like very much time to attend what could very well be the Chicago estate-sale-of-the-century.
