They stood in line for hours, to get a peek at our past. While many of us slept overnight, people started lining up at the James O'Rourke Estate Sale in south Moorhead.

As we told you earlier this week, this is the first of three sales scheduled to liquidate a fascinating art and antique collection of O'Rourke. He started the Rourke Museum and also a gallery. Because of space, people were given numbers and buyers were admitted in as others left.

Kelly Miller – Buyer: “They get us tickets with a number on it. They started signing up. The first person was here at midnight. You can't really say what you're interested in, because you don't want someone to grab it before you.”

Another sale is set for June. The estate sale this weekend runs through tomorrow.
