CORTEZ – After 25 years, the popular Cortez antiques and curio store, The Sea Hagg, is closing its doors. An online auction is currently underway to sell the store’s contents and will close at noon on October 27th.

The auction gallery features a variety of statues and sculptures, decorative iron gates and fences, garden and interior art, shells and corals, glass bottles and buoys, and countless other eclectic treasures.
The Sea Hagg is open for auction items on Saturday, October 22nd between 10am and 3pm and on Wednesday, October 26th between 11am and 5pm.
In a recent social media post on Facebook, The Sea Hagg shared some words about the bittersweet closure, writing in part: “We all agree that it is a sad farewell to this treasure. But the spirit of the Sea Hagg lives on, showing in restaurants, homes and in gardens. Jan had a creative vision 25 years ago and throughout that time focused on nautical decor, antiques and salvage. It just got better and better! It’s proof to all of us that we are living our own creative dreams…”
By e-mail to the address TBTFreedom Auction Company’s Brian Hollifield said The Sea Hagg’s owner, founder and visionary, Jan Holman, has plans for the future, but those plans are not yet ready to be announced.
