Remember when Fort Worth Weekly profiled Brenda and Jarrell McDonald, the business-minded couple who kept opening up shops in the Stockyards right and left, including clothing and antiques stores such as the Cross-Eyed Moose (“Heart of the West,” Feb. 11, 2009)?
Sure you don’t.
Anyway, wedded bliss often comes with an expiration date, and that union has soured.
Moment of silence.
Jarrell McDonald is remaining in Fort Worth to run the empire.
But Brenda is retiring, cashing in her chips, and heading north to Arkansas. The longtime antique dealer and collector is having an estate sale this weekend to unload 25 years worth of stuff that’s filled her house.
Expect to find plenty of antiques include art, pottery, dolls, furniture, Navajo rugs, Ranch Oak furniture (made many years ago right here in Fort Worth), Texas Centennial collectibles, taxidermy mounts, Western collectibles, and vintage jewelry and clothing.
The estate sale is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday July 19 and 20), and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday (July 21) at 7436 Golf Club Dr. in Fort Worth (near Eagle Mountain Lake).
