Ec­cen­tric auction

First News - - HOME NEWS -

The memorabili­a of an ec­cen­tric col­lec­tor has sold for twice as much as ex­pected. Tony Parker passed away last year, leav­ing be­hind a house crammed full of fas­ci­nat­ing movie, mu­sic and pop cul­ture items. The 274 things that went up for sale sold for a to­tal of £76,000, way above the es­ti­mated £34,340. Among the sales was a vam­pire hunter’s kit and a life-size ze­bra model with The Bea­tles painted on it. “Re­ally that house is my dad’s brain ex­ploded,” says daugh­ter Fay Cap­stick. “Ev­ery cor­ner cap­tures a piece of his rest­less and en­er­getic imag­i­na­tion.”
