The End of an Era: The Mad Men Auction

Posted on July 31, 2015

Darlings, come take a walk down memory lane or even do a little shopping, because all the physical remainders of Mad Men are going up on the auction block. We couldn’t possibly feature every item in the 56 page catalogue, but we pulled out a few notable or notably fabulous ones for perusal. You really should click through the entire thing. Just don’t get excited thinking you’re going to find that one killer dress that Betty, Peggy, Megan or Joan wore. There are plenty of accessories up for auction, but the only fashion pieces are menswear. Which, if you’ve been dying to pick up a pair of Stan Rizzo’s love beads, means you’re in luck.

It seemed appropriate to make this the final post with the “Mad Style” tag.
