She was one of the brightest stars of Hollywood's Golden age, an honorary Oscar recipient
and star of some of the most iconic films in history: Miracle on 34h Street
, The Hunchback of Notre Dame
, How Green Was My Valley
, The Parent Trap
and a regular co-star of John Wayne, when they both appeared in The Quiet Man
, Rio Grande
and The Wings of Eagles
. But to Boisean Conor Fitzsimmons, Maureen O'Hara was grandma. That's why she was feted at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise on her 93rd birthday in 2013. O'Hara died in her sleep at her Boise home in 2015
, but this weekend, in honor of what would have been her 98th birthday, Richochet Home Consignment
will host an exclusive sale of some of O'Hara's long-treasured items.
Fitzsimmons said he used to bring O'Hara to Ricochet, which is why he chose the Boise shop for the sale on Friday, Aug. 17, 4 p.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturday, Aug. 18, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 19, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Among the items for sale will be vintage decor, dishes, dolls, perfumes and an assortment of vintage clothing, purses, hats and shoes. Fitzsimmons said he'll attend Friday night's celebration of his grandmother's birthday on Friday evening.
