The Great American Parking Lot Sale – auto parts – by owner


Show Business Super Sale, Greg Thompson Productions Opens It’s Vault of Goodies!

Beginning Friday, August 4th through August 13th from 11am to 6pm, Greg Thompson Productions’ parking lot on 921 Elliott Avenue at the foot of Mercer Street will be pulling back the curtain on more than 30 years of costumes, sets, props, collections along with some office furniture, audio and lighting equipment in a gigantic clearance sale.

“We had eight warehouses all over the country,” said Producer Greg Thompson, “and we have been selling off all the sets and costumes I just couldn’t part with over the years, but now we are down to the last hurrah and everything must go!”

Thompson explained that his company’s current productions deal primarily with theatrical stage shows, documentary films and large holiday production shows like The Bellevue Collection’s “Snowflake Lane”. Beginning next year, the production of these shows will be located in Bellevue, Everett and Las Vegas which means the Seattle facility needs to be liquidated.

“We have hundreds of costumes, wigs, shoes, hats along dozens of props” said Wardrobe Supervisor, Mimi Countryman. “We have some fabulous items along with some suits and dresses that are a little on the flashy side!”

Thompson says he is excited to see what set pieces and props his crew pulls out of the storage sheds. “I know we have some of the spectacular set pieces from the native American show we did at Tillicum Village for 18 years and we still have the original 8 foot tall rolling “Jukebox” from the very first Music Hall Follies we produced in 1978 at Jack McGovern’s Music Hall. We have used it over and over again!”

“We’ve got some fabulous set pieces and a bunch of cool bent wood cabaret chairs along with a big “heart bed”, a giant 12′ “high heel shoe” that lights up and a turntable we used to rotate a Harley Davidson motorcycle on stage,” said Thompson, “It’s going to be fun to pull it all out and see it all one last time!”

Thompson is also losing his garage space which houses 3 of his 6 automobiles so he’s going to have to part with a few. Up for grabs will be his prized 1980 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and his 1990 Jaguar XJS12.

Dozens of framed show posters will be available along with hundreds of CD’s from top 80’s and 90’s singers and musicians. A couple of dozen hand-painted scenic models will be sold along with some over sized 3’x5′, 4’x6′ and 4’x8′ posters. A highlight will be a giant 4’x10′ wall-sized black & white cutout of the Beatles.

Some of the more interesting items will include:

A giant 12′ high “High Heel Shoe”
A light-up 8′ tall “Juke Box” on wheels
A 1980 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow
The giant ceremonial “triple mask” from Tillicum Village’s “Dance on the Wind”
