I'm Somewhere Else
My brother, David Markel, is an artist and a thespian. He also has a business called Markel Estate Liquidators or MEL. He works out of a big barn on Horton's Lane in Southold, Long Island. This Saturday, August 10 at 8 AM, David is holding a "Whatever Comes Out the Door Tag Sale" at his barn. This will be followed by a "Whatever Comes Out the Door Auction By Request" at noon.
