(PRWEB) November 11, 2009 -- For the first time in many decades The American Red Cross is making available for sale to the public rare and unusual artifacts recently retrieved from their archives –historical records and bound journals, antique uniforms (1925 – 1941), flags, vintage posters, Red Cross dolls and pins from the 1800s, Middle Age icons, a model train, photographs (including those of the founder Clara Barton, past officials, and former Red Cross President Elizabeth Dole), and such unusual items as an antipersonnel land mine, portable blood drawing kit, and a sealed container reported to contain a death mask.

Since its founding in 1881 by visionary leader Clara Barton, The American Red Cross has been the nation’s premier emergency response organization. As part of a worldwide movement that historically has offered neutral humanitarian care to victims of war and devastating natural disasters, The American Red Cross is dedicated to the prevention and relief of suffering worldwide. Each year The American Red Cross responds immediately to more than 70,000 disasters, including wars, insurgencies, fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, tidal waves, tornadoes, hazardous material spills, transportation accidents, explosions, and other natural and man-made disasters. An exploration of the Catalog of items to be auctioned chronicles the over 120 year history of this humanitarian organization governed by volunteers and supported by community donations.

OLS Trading and The American Red Cross have had a professional relationship for over 15 years. Not only have we had the privilege of liquidating their gently used assets, we have assisted in securing reasonably priced furniture for their National Chapters, provided complete furniture inventories for their Washington D.C. facilities, and consulted on fair market valuations and work station valuations for use with sub-tenant negotiations and decisions making. Partnering with OLS in the past has enabled The American Red Cross to optimize their outcomes and exceed their goals and we look forward to a successful upcoming auction.

Remarketing assets since 1962, OLS, an industry leader in the nationwide development and implementation of furniture, fixture, and equipment sales within a “green” model, has an infrastructure of affiliations, processes, and sales models that gives clients the greatest range of sales venues and options. OLS customizes management of disposition projects and offers end to end solutions – from presale logistics to post sale clean up – and detailed reporting on every item and phase.

As a full service partner, OLS optimizes and completely manages projects for clients (Client Managed Option) busy with renovations, moves, closings, business mergers, and acquisitions, assisting companies in the green disposal of excess assets and the acquisition of green asset while reaching sustainable outcomes and acquiring LEED credits. Businesses are paying increasing attention to companies whose methods and services counter global warming, benefit the environment, and provide community support with a “green mindset.” Embracing this mindset is a priority and best practice for OLS Trading, Inc. not only when providing liquidation services for a humanitarian organization such as The American Red Cross but for every client – not matter how large or how small.

Product may be previewed at The Red Cross Warehouse on the Lorton, Virginia Campus on Thursday, November 12, 2009, from10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Live internet auction sale is in progress and closes Friday November 13, 2009 at 12:00 noon.
