Greta Garbo, who is considered to be one of the leading actresses throughout time, died in 1990. In 2012 the American auction house Julien's Auctions hosted a sale of property from her estate, which turned out to be a big success. Julien's Auctions is one of the world's leading auction houses dealing in sports and celebrity memorabilia and has previously held sales such as The Estate of Marilyn Monroe and mementos from Michael Jackson's career.

Last year another auction took place that also included items from Garbo's estate. That was when the seller, that had intended to bid on a sports car, purchased the creations that will now go up for auction at Bukowskis Market upcoming auction. "I felt it was a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I had to do it. It was utterly magical to get close to her person in this way.
To bring her stuff home to small Lomma was a dizzying experience," says Michael Reimer, the seller of Garbo's former possessions.

Besides clothing such as designer items from the 1950's to the 1970's, the auction block will also feature photographs and books. One of them is a signed Bertil Malmberg book, Åke and his world, written in 1924.

Paulina Sokolow, Bukowskis' head of communications, sees this as a very prestigious event for Bukowskis Market. "This is a wonderful opportunity for Swedes to get close to Garbo's possessions, which we never have a chance to do before," she says to Swedish newspaper SvD. Greta Garbo was quite a restrictive person when it came to her personal life. Her spent final years completely out of the limelight, where she had previously spent so much of her life in. That is why this upcoming auction is so exciting, her possessions have almost found a home. The auction will take place online starting March 25.
