41st Annual Houston Museum Antique Sale Opens 2/27
The Houston Museum in Chattanooga houses the huge collection of antiques amassed by Anna Safley Houston. Mrs. Houston ran a retail store in a converted barn where she offered parts of her collection for sale—but only to people she liked. Many people were refused even entry to the store, but these days her huge collection of antique furniture and glass is open to everyone at The Houston Museum in the Bluff View arts District. One of the ways the museum supports itself is with an annual Antique sale. Richard Winham talked to Jane Lupton and Caroline Cavett—both of whom volunteer at the museum—about the upcoming sale and the colorful Anna Safley Houston.
