Hundreds Turn Out For McGovern Estate Sale



Bookmark and Share

Hundreds of people turned out for the first day of the 2-day estate sale at Senator George McGovern’s home in Sioux Falls on Saturday.

Hundreds of personal items were for sale, including everything from pictures to statues to even his toiletries. A separate room was dedicated for all of McGovern’s political items.

Prices for items ranged anywhere from a few cents to $16,000, but no matter the price, people were quick to get their hands on McGovern’s belongings.

"I got a pair of spectacles he wore. I even got his last bottle of cologne and aftershave and I got his car that he bought brand new sitting out in the driveway!” said Oran Sorenson, who traveled from Garretson for the sale.

“That's the purpose of an estate sale. It’s to get their belongings into someone that really appreciates it and that's what he would like. So we are thrilled,” said Deb Sorenson, of Finders Keepers Estate Sales.

Proceeds from the sale of McGovern’s book, American Journey, will benefit Feeding South Dakota.

The estate sale continues on Sunday from 9 A.M. through 6 P.M at 2615 S. Ridgeview Way in Sioux Falls.
