In sad news, it looks Kim Thompson’s estate sale is this weekend in Seattle. The listing doesn’t specifically say it’s Kim Thompson, but it would be hard to be anyone else with that description. Click over to the estate sale page for glimpses of some of the art that’s for sale. It’s a significant collection and it’s always better if art finds an appreciative home.
