Celebrity tattoo artist, reality-television star and make-up/shoe brand entrepreneur Kat Von D and her family purchased the historic Vevay, Indiana mansion this past December in order to "plant roots in a small town where there is nature, where (their) son can be free to play and where (they) can eventually retire someday," Von D wrote in an Instagram story post on Dec. 17.

The home, which previously operated as a bed and breakfast, will be used as the family's second residence. 

Antique items from the over-a-century-old home, and some additional consignor pieces, will be auctioned during an online estate sale next month, from May 5-14. 

“There are some wonderful antique and reproduction pieces in Kat’s Living Estate Auction. From marble top tables and beds to everything in between,” said Kendal Miller, co-owner and principal auctioneer for auctioning company Rapid Fire Auction Services, which operates out of Milton, Kentucky. 

Items included in the auction range from gold-leaf framed pictures to marble top tables and armoires, as well as canopy beds, chairs, desks and a "vintage 7-1/2 foot antique oak beveled mirrored hall tree accented with winged lions."

There will be opportunities to view the auction items in-person prior to the event from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. April 24-25 and May 1-2 at the Rapid Fire auction house in Milton, Kentucky (10430 US 421 N., Milton, Kentucky). This is also where bid winners will pick up their pieces.

The auction kicks off at 7 p.m. on May 5 and will continue through 7 p.m. on May 14. Find the available items online once the auction is live. 

A release from Rapid Fire Auction Services notes that all pieces included in the auction are sold "as-is" and "where-is" and come with no warranties or guarantees.
