Artist, author and acclaimed cartoonist Stan Lynde and his wife, Lynda, are holding an estate sale this weekend before they become snowbirds and fly off to reside in Ecuador.

Lynde is well known across Montana, and the country, for his popular syndicated cartoon strips, “Rick O’Shay” and “Latigo.”

He’s also published eight Western novels featuring U.S. Marshal Merlin Fanshaw.
Going on sale this weekend are antiques, fine quality contemporary furniture and, of course, art prints, comic strip memorabilia and more.

Sale hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at their home, 296 Willowbrook (take Benton Avenue five blocks north of Custer and take a left on Willowbrook).

Estate sale manager Crystal Shors said that among the unusual sale items are a buffalo hide from a bison shot by Lynde; a silver-plated belt buckle featuring Hipshot, one of Lynde’s most popular cartoon characters; and a tepee with a liner painted by Jerry Farenthold telling the story of Chief Plenty Coups.

For information, call Shors at 202-1814.
