From the Rat and Mouse (a great little London property blog):
Apparently, Dustin Hoffman’s having a clear-out at his London home (in Kensington we believe). Forty-two antiques from the property will go on sale at Christie’s on March 7.
Sounds expensive…my recommendation for getting some great cheap furniture (rather than something that’s halfway to the skip when you buy it) is Criterion Auctioneers on Essex Road. Go any time and pick what you like and your maximum bid; the auctioneer will bid for you at the weekly Monday auction and get you the best price they can.
We got a 1940’s bureau (desk/bookcase scenario) for £60 all in!
