“Ugly Betty” Set Being Auctioned Off in Montclair

ugly betty auction storefront.jpgThe TV show “Ugly Betty” had its final episode this spring. But if you loved the show, or Betty’s eye-popping mid-century furnishings, you can take a bit home to your own living room without going any further than Bloomfield Ave. Nye & Company, the boutique auction house located in downtown Montclair, is auctioning off 950 set and prop items from the ABC series this week. The catalogue reads like a restaurant menu, with egg chairs, cone chairs and lollipop lamps.
Doors open at 8 a.m. Thursday through Saturday and the actual auction begins each day at 10 a.m. Nye & Company is located at 425 Bloomfield Avenue. The catalogue is on Nye & Company’s website.
But does the idea of a Sotheby’s-style auction scare you? Auctioneer John Nye says it shouldn’t. Watch the video to see why, and take a peek at some of the “Ugly Betty” auction items.
