Hollywood Market Estate Sale

Hi Neighbors! We just received the following from the folks in charge of the Hollywood Market Estate Sale this weekend. Please join and keep a part of The North End’s history.

Dear Friends and Customers!

Our estate sale this weekend has is steeped in Boise history! We are helping to sell the contents of the storied Hollywood Market, founded in the early 1900s and owned and operated for many decades by the late Margaret Lawrence. The trustees of her estate have asked us to conduct a sale of the many unique and interesting items in the store, plus some assorted collectibles brought from Ms. Lawrence’s home.

Margaret Lawrence was a beloved neighborhood icon, plus a well known Boise activist, spearheading the movement to recall former Boise Mayor Brent Coles and campaigning for other causes. You’ll find many wonderful collectibles and memorabilia used or displayed in the Market, including signs, neon lights, books and records, cabinets, shelving, coolers, pictures, posters, china, glassware, figurines, bronze items, colored glass, typewriters, notions and sundries. We hope all of the Hollywood Market’s many friends and customers will stop by the sale and take home something of Margaret’s.

Sale hours are 9-5 Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday. The Hollywood Market is located at 1319 N. 8th St. in Boise’s North End (corner of 8th and Ressegue). We will pass out numbers to hold places in line starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday. A limited number of people will be allowed in the store at one time. There will be no previews or earlies.

The pictures that follow show some of the many items for sale this weekend! We hope to see you there! Please email with questions; however, we have no knowledge of what might happen to the building after the sale.
