Collected for decades, Manci’s Antique Club memorabilia sold in a few hours at public auction

No matter how odd the item, everyone seemed to want to walk away with something. A pair of figurines dressed as mariners? $215. A Texaco gravity pump gumball dispenser now filled with marbles? $160. And an antique Victor Victrola phonograph with table that still spins? $1,600.

On Saturday, 220 of the items left behind were being sold at a public auction. Johnson said it’s only about 2/3 of the contents found inside the 3,700-square-foot building. The bar is scheduled to reopen around the middle of May, and the kitchen on the first day of June.
