Antique Rug Auction

Thrills, chills, and excitement galore: That's what you'll find at an auction, according to Serena Harragin. Along with business partner Deba Gray, Harragin owns Gray's Auctioneers, the only licensed, bonded, and insured auction house in Cleveland. Since its 2007 launch inside a former Citroen dealership, Gray's has handled a stunning array of antiques, collectibles, and fine art, ranging from African tribal masks to a first edition of Ian Fleming's Moonraker. Then there was that piece of gold jewelry, a nondescript trinket that Harragin guessed would go for its melt weight — around $800 — but that ultimately sold for $12,000. "The audience was gobsmacked," she recalls in her charming British accent. Today's auction centers on more than 100 antique Oriental carpets. But even if you don't have $20,000 to lay down on a gilt-embroidered panel depicting Mohammed's tomb, you are welcome to attend. "Auctions are for everyone, not just for the elite," says Harragin. "They're informative, educational, and an awful lot of fun!" Today's fun begins at 1 p.m. at 10717 Detroit Ave.; call 216-458-7695 or go to graysauctioneers.com. — Cicora
