One of the mid-century modern furniture pieces available at The Collector's Sale.

Freeman's, located at 1808 Chestnut Street, will present The Collector's Sale on Wednesday, Aug. 9, beginning at 10 a.m.

400 pieces of furniture, artwork and other household items will be up for auction.

The majority of items will be in the mid-century modern design category, selected to appeal to young collectors and millennial buyers.

"Buying at auction allows you to own a unique piece of furniture or décor, imbued with a history and timeless style for not much more—and in many cases, less—than the cost of an item from the ubiquitous Scandinavian flat-packed home store," states an announcement on the event.

Many of the items in the sale have estimates below $1,000.
