First Time Buyers


Bidding at auction is easy and fun. There’s nothing like heading home with a bargain, or that rare object that will complete your collection – or your décor – so perfectly.

2020 auctions have a three to four-day preview in our Auction Gallery. It is your opportunity to browse, inspect, measure and evaluate items of interest with our staff.  With over 400 lots each auction, there is plenty to attract your attention!

It takes only a minute to register for your bidding number, then get yourself some coffee and (or some lunch!) at the snack bar.  You attended the preview on Thursday or Friday, and made notes in the margins of your catalog.  You know what lots you want, and you know the maximum you are willing to pay.  Have a seat, enjoy the auction and let the bidding begin.


The Auctioneer offers about 60 lots an hour. He begins with number one in your catalog and continues chronologically.  You can stay for the entire auction, or come and go any time you like.  (Be advised, most people stay longer than planned, just for the fun of it!)

We accept cash and checks, and most items can be picked up within 5 or 10 minutes after your winning bid!
