Austin Auction Gallery

There’s many ways to describe Richard Garriott de Cayeux: computer gaming pioneer, sometime astronaut and Austin resident. And now you have the chance to bid on items from Garriott’s one-of-a-kind collection.

This Saturday, the Austin Auction House is offering over 500 items and collections from Garriott’s estate – presumably housed at Britannia Manor, Garriott’s ornate home overlooking Lake Austin.
