Renaissance Faire sees office contents go on auction block
RALEIGH - An auction house auctioned off the contents of the Raleigh office of the N.C. Renaissance Faire last Tuesday as the owner of the rental property took action to recover a $22,100 court judgment against the group which produces historically accurate dramas during weekend long fairs.
The $22,100 judgment including $3,315 in attorney's fees was issued against the N.C. Renaissance Faire on Jan. 16 in Wake County District Court for past rent due.

Millner's Auction Services of Raleigh auctioned off the property, said Rhyne Management Associate owner Jesse Sorrell. Sorrell manages the office property at 200-119 Powell Drive, Raleigh, for Jackson & Dowd Enterprises, the owner, also of Raleigh.

"We auctioned off everything in the unit," said Sorrell. "There was a whole variety of stuff. Lots of furniture, lots of lumber, some costumes, painted canvas sheets, flags banners. Everything was sold. We started about 10 a.m. and were done by 3 p.m."

Sorrell declined to say how much money was made at the auction. He said about 35 people bid on the property including a theatrical group from Virginia and another from Rocky Mount.

"We followed all the legal instructions. It went fine," Sorrell said. "The objective was to vacate the stuff out of there and we did so that we can re-lease the space."

N.C. Renaissance Faire executive director Donna Varner-Sheaves says the auction and judgment will not stop the faire from being held in Knightdale the first three weekends in April.

"It has changed nothing for us," said Varner-Sheaves. "I've got the faire lined up and the faire is happening. We're set to go." or 829-4826
