Walter Mercado is going all New York on us.
The celebrity astrologist is in the process of moving up north. Before he left Miami, Mercado held an estate sale at his downtown Miami condo.
Among the items snatched up: portraits of the man himself, colorful capes he wore, artwork from his travels and furniture of many eras, including his circa 1940 wooden frame bed with dramatic headboard.
Uncle Walter’s two bedroom, two bath condo at The Grand overlooks Biscayne Bay. Check it out on Zillow.
“Miami is my home. It always will be,” said the famed television personality. “It’s my Miami. It’s me. I love it there more than ever. I’ll never leave it completely.”
Even at 85, Mercado still wants to change things up.
“I have the opportunity to do some consulting and other work,” he said. “It’s a new chapter. I always like new experiences, a new ambiance.”
Phew. We don’t see the worldwide entertainer, known for his over-the-top costumes and on point predictions, retiring anytime soon. Especially during these tumultuous times.
“I want to look for the light, for the love, for the fraternity, for the union … the conscience,” he said. “If I can be a missionary I’m going to do it. I’m not Walter the body. I’m Walter, the soul, the spirit.”
