Rafael Osona Auctions is a go-to resource for Buyers & Sellers.

We travel from coast to coast, evaluating entire collections, single items and Estates.

Auctions begin with the Memorial Weekend sale followed by a 10-day Marketplace (a cash-n-carry buying event in June). Our auctions continue every Saturday in July and August wrapping up the fall with Columbus Weekend and Christmas Stroll sales.
