Charleston residents will get a chance to have their own little bit of the Parish scandal next weekend, with the Al Parish auction, with organizers calling it the the most unusual, intriguing, and captivating collection ever presented for auction in this area (something we can surely be proud of).

The auction will be July 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. There’s an early showing Thursday afternoon. Admission (if you can believe it) is $5 a day.
