Auction Service: This is what we do best, our auctions are held every 4 to 5 weeks, we are a traditional "brick and mortar" auction, and over the past 35 years we have build a solid reputation holding quality auctions with on site participation from antique dealers, collectors and the savvy private buyer alike.
Commission is based of quality of merchandise & scope of consignment, commission charged covers insurance, advertising, photography and marketing of your items with no hidden fees, trucking fees (if applicable) are dependent on distance & amount of items and in many cases will be free, contact us for a free consultation.
Payment will be made the second week after the auction
Our auctions always take place on Monday nights and start at 5PM, in addition we hold a few holiday sales usually on or around New Years Day & Labor Day, these sales are usually held during the day.
Our regular auctions hold about 500 to 600 lots ranging from antique furniture to mid Century modern, every auction has a selection of sterling silver, fine art (paintings, watercolors, etchings, lithographs), carpets, glass, china, Asian & European accessories, lighting and the strange and unique items that make an auction fun and memorable, a Sing Sing toilet, naughty bronzes, a DeLorean, horse drawn carriages, Civil war letters, a mummified hand, the occasional motor boat, movie set items (Wolf of Wall Street) and even a shrunken head has passed through here.
At every auction complimentary pizza is served at 10PM ensuring you will not leave hungry.
Select auctions, usually held every other month are also simulcast on a live Internet platform allowing global participation.
Items included in these particular auctions are more specialized and are selected based on rarity, quality or because the unique qualities of the item in question simply demand a broader base of potential bidders, Asian & European art are notable examples.
We have used different Internet platforms in the past, and currently use Live Auctioneers for that purpose.
