This is your chance to own a little piece of what keeps Austin weird. On May 13-14, Sekrit Theater owner Beau Reichert will host an estate sale at his spectacular East Austin property, featuring a mix of antiques, yard art, movie props, vintage items, and more. 

The sale coincides with Reichert's decision to put the iconic East Austin property on the market. He has owned the 2-acre spot for a decade, slowly turning it into an eclectic, artistic venue.

"There are many bits and pieces from the collection of the Sekrit Theater for sale, including a Swiss Military WWII-era bicycle, vintage A/V gear, a hot air balloon basket, and plenty of obscure items that every weird Austinite would drool over," Reichert tells CultureMap.

"I am also selling my props and costumes from the various themed parties that were held at the space. I'm very sad to see a decade of my curated collection go, but I need to use this opportunity to fundraise the relocation of the theater."

The estate sale takes place on the property, located at 1145 Perry Rd., Saturday, May 13, from 9 am to 3 pm, and Sunday, May 14, from 10 am to 3 pm. Interested shoppers (and other curious Austinites) can peruse items beforehand here. Cash and personal checks will be accepted. 

"I suggest people to arrive early and show your support to the property that was created for Austin artists," Reichert says.

As for the property, which features multiple homes, as well as the namesake theater, an atrium, pavilion, and more, it's listed for $3.5 million with Austin Music Realty Group.
