Last of Sachdeva possessions to be sold at consignment store

MILWAUKEE -- The remainder of Sue Sachdeva's possessions will be sold at a Mequon consignment store on Saturday and Sunday.

Sachdeva was convicted of stealing more than $34 million from the Koss Corporation. She was sentenced to 11 years in prison and began serving her sentenced in February 2011.

Thousands of items up for sale are very high-end luxury items including: housewares, china, crystal, sterling silver, decorator items, linens, shoes, clothing, accessories, luggage, electronics, figurines, and art.

"We're talking dinnerware that sells for probably $100 to 250 a plate.  There's a crystal sculpture that was $10,000 and an Escada coat with a pricetag of $3,600.  It was never worn," said Vicky Brenner-Gerard, owner of Ivana's Trunk Consignment Store and the appraiser in charge of selling off the items for restitution.

Many of the items to be sold, she said, are still in their original packaging.

"I have an acquaintance who has a friend in the U.S. Attorney's office.  She called me up one day and said, 'Well we've got these items.'  The next week, a lot of boxes started arriving.  I felt like a kid at Christmas opening up each box," said Brennar-Gerard.

The items are selling for at least 50 percent off the original value.  Some used items, like clothing, shoes and even lingerie had a deeper discount.

"It's La Perla lingerie from Italy and France," laughed Brennar-Gerad.  "We normally don't do that type of thing in an estate sale, but because of the nature of the sale, who she was and the value of it, we thought that we should include it."

The sale will be held at 1501-1511 W. Market in Mequon. The sale will be held on Saturday, April 21st from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Another opportunity to purchase Sachdeva items takes place on Sunday, April 22nd from noon to 3 p.m.
