Always wanted to dress like Sid? Here's your big chance!
Sid Hartman is 93 years young and still going strong as a Star Tribune columnist, but he's taking the unusual step of holding a pre-death estate sale.

The sale, organized by a company called Estate Sales Minnesota, is taking place in a commercial building at 6900 Oxford Street in St. Louis Park between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Twin Cities Business reports.

Sid is selling some of his suits, shirts, pants, and shoes, along with sports merch and other trinkets. He'll be there in the flesh signing autographs from about 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

From the TCB Mag report:
Dana Arvidson, owner of Estate Sales Minnesota, told Twin Cities Business that estate sales usually take place when a family member has died or someone is moving into a smaller home or apartment. However, she said Hartman's sale is designed simply to unload his excess clothing and he isn't planning a move.

Arvidson said her company determined the value of the goods Hartman plans to sell but declined to disclose the total value of the estate sale.
In other words, it's Sid's world and we're all just living in it.

He "isn't planning a move?" I guess that's one way to put it.

Good idea. Want control over what happens to your possessions? Dispose of them *before* you die.

For gods sake, donate those clothes to charity. People need clothing and you don't need the buck those worn out shoes will sell for. What a putz.

No offense meant to Sid Hartman but he needs to stick to columns and leave radio to the younger guys. Whenever I hear Sid on WCCO it's almost painful to listen to and his guest spot at the state fair on 'CCO on his son's show was so 1950's sexist he's lucky hordes of angry gen X'ers and millenials didn't lynch him.

Is the Smithsonian asking everyone to donate the stuff they buy?

@cswaibel i feel like this sale would be snapchat gold for anyone who attended. esp. with the robe!

@MicheleBachmann Guilty as charged. I may waste a lot of time, but I haven't seen or heard much of that senile old man in many years. But now that you mention it, that line does have a ring of familiarity. Sorry you had to explain it, but in this case, it actually is funny.
