MORRISTOWN (WATE) – In life, Harold and Rose Ann Bolick were known for being well dressed. It wasn't until their deaths that the world knew the extent of their wardrobes.

"This is a San Remo sweater. They bought it for $207.95. We have it on sale for $15," said Bonnie Burnett, pointing to the tag as she showed us some of the collection.

At least a thousand pieces of women's clothing, many with tags, filled a warehouse on Andrew Johnson Highway. There was a purse and a pair of shoes to match each outfit. There were 200 pairs of men's pants, along with a whole lot more.

"Compulsive shoppers. People who shopped for the thrill of shopping and finding the best bargains," said Kay Forester, executor of the Bolick's estate.

Forester says the couple was married for more than 50 years and had no children.

"They enjoyed clothes. But more than that, they enjoyed the thrill of the hunt," Forester explained.

The contents of the room were double just a few days ago, when members of First Baptist Church began selling the collection.

Harold Bolick passed away six years ago. Rose Ann died in April.

The couple's passion is now up for sale to benefit the church, where they were members.

"They really enjoyed making outfits and looking good, but they really enjoyed shopping," Forester said.

The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Walker Supply Building on West Andrew Johnson Highway.

The couple also had several expensive antiques and minks.

A separate auction will be held for those items. A date hasn't been set yet.
