High Noon Show Dealer Booth

MESA, AZ– 150 show dealers and over 350 auction items will be showcased at this year’s annual western Americana event, formerly known as the High Noon Show & Auction and now called Brian Lebel’s High Noon Show & Auction. Celebrating its 25th year, the event will continue in the same format as always, and will offer the highest quality, authentic western art and antiques for sale by show vendors and at auction. The show is open to the public on Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm, and again on Sunday from 9am to 3pm. General admission is $10 per day, or discount tickets are available at www.oldwestevents.com. Passes for VIP entry during dealer set-up on Friday are also available for purchase. The live auction will be held at 5pm on Saturday, January 24th. The auction is free and open to the public; auction catalogs are available for purchase by phone or online.

Items available for purchase from the many show dealers include cowboy, Indian and western art, antiques, apparel, jewelry, home design, historic firearms, Native American arts and crafts, saddles, spurs, boots, hats and other fine merchandise. The auction will feature western art and antiquities, including a famous illustrated letter by the artist Charlie Russell that he wrote to his good friend, actor Harry Carey. The letter is one among many pieces from the Harry Carey estate. Also being offered at auction is the last Winchester owned by Old West frontiersman Tom Horn, along with numerous items from the C.B. Irwin estate. Also for sale is the most extensive single collection of antique saloon poker chips known to exist, a number of items from the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum Collection, and spurs from the collection of Casa Grande, Arizona collector Dick Powell.

Brian Lebel, who purchased the High Noon Show & Auction this past Spring, is proud of the quality and diversity of the items being offered for sale this January. He says of the Mesa festivities, “as always, the High Noon Show & Auction promises to be an exciting kick-off to the New Year for all of us in the western collecting business.” He adds, “Every year, it just keeps getting better and better.” Lebel is best known for his summer event, the Old West Show & Auction, which will be held in early June in Fort Worth, Texas.

Lebel’s High Noon Show will be held at the Mesa Convention Center and the Auction is held next door at the Phoenix Marriott Mesa.
