Rachael Ray to Host 'All My Children' Yard Sale

by Michael Maloney, posted Nov 18th 2009 8:00AM
'All My Children' is moving its production from New York to Los Angeles in January -- but not everything is coming with it.

In what may be every soap-lover's fantasy, the show has decided to host a yard sale to clear out some old inventory. The sale will be held this Monday, Nov. 23 from 11AM to 3PM at the Rachael Ray Studio.

Attendees take note: Ray's talk show will be taping the garage sale for a segment that will air on a future episode -- so, in other words, if you're there to buy one of Billy Clyde Tuggle's pimp hats, be prepared to have your friends and family find out about it.

Proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. To obtain a ticket, contact Karina at 917-332-3188. Cash and credit will be accepted.

The idea of an 'AMC' yard sale got us so excited that we came up with our own wishlist of items we'd love to find -- and, more importantly, purchase. Check them out below:

1. Stuart Chandler's argyle sweaters. Viewers could always distinguish controlling Adam from his kind-hearted brother by the colorful argyle sweaters that Stuart would wear. Now that Stuart's sadly gone to that great soap in the sky, we imagine that AMC won't have need for the warm, wool and cashmere garments anymore. As for the fans, well, that's a different story.

2. Pancake syrup. Dixie getting killed off via poisoned peanut butter pancakes (served up by the show's then-writers) left a sour taste in the mouths of many viewers. But we'd imagine it was a pretty tasty way for her to go Maybe AMC still has some of the Vermont specialty around? Actually, though, just in case it was the syrup and not the pancakes that were tainted, we'll take a pass on this one.

3. Dr. Joe's stethoscope.
Unfortunately, original cast member Ray MacDonnell (Dr. Joe Martin) won't be moving with the show, so Dr. Joe's stethoscope could be up for grabs. It'd be a great item to snag, as it has listened to the heart of many cast members over 'AMC''s almost 40-year run.

4. The Wildwind dining room table. The squabbling Walker clan on 'Brothers & Sisters' have nothing on the Merricks, Santoses and their loved ones when it came to sitting around the dining room table and serving up emotional blowouts. This wooden staple of the '90s is both a memorable and a practical find.

5. Jenny Nelson's jet ski.
We could never ride it safely, of course. How would we know it wouldn't blow up like when Jenny was riding it? (Her stalker, Tony Barclay, was trying to kill Jenny's husband Greg when he rigged the device.) Not only did the jet ski break, but so did our hearts when Jenny passed away.

6. Bottles of Orsini wine. When Michael E. Knight (Tad) made a triumphant return to AMC in 1992, the show's writers wrote him a dual role -- that of Ted Orsini, heir to the Orsini vineyards. Wine -- like Knight's performances -- only gets better with time, so we'll take a case to go.

7. Erica Kane's nun habit. It's so annoying when your fake sister frames you for murder. When 'Silver Kane' did that to Erica (Susan Lucci) back in 1983, La Lucci's alter-ego dressed up as a nun in order to evade authorities while her name was cleared. As Erica's not likely to enter a convent any time soon, 'AMC' could easily retire this habit.

8. Back issues of Tempo Magazine. Brooke English is one of Pine Valley's more inquisitive -- and savvy -- characters, so her tenure as editor-in-chief of Tempo was a perfect gig. Tempo mags may have yellowed a little by this point, however. Check for silverfish before purchasing.

9. Marian Colby Chandler's handbag. If your name begins or ends with an 'M' or a 'W,' then Marian's purse is for you. Liza's mom was carrying the monogrammed bag when she accidentally killed villain Zach Grayson. (Donna Tyler recalled seeing the purse and mistakenly thought that the 'M' was a 'W' and therefore belonged to Phoebe Wallingford.)

10. Cameron Mathison's black thong t-shirt. People, it only looked like a thong when a Mathison inadvertently exposed a tucked in black t-shirt last December during a scene with his character, Ryan Lavery. The actor went on 'The View' to clear the air and explain that he doesn't wear thongs -- not that there's anything wrong with that. Besides: We'll take what we can get
