Good evening everyone, I hope you’re all well and looking forward to a few less chilly days going forward and officially the British Springtime.. So, a quick update and recap on how the last week or so has been.. bit of a difficult day today, but that’s passed us now… how was 19th Feb then???
From auction to auction we have long days and difficult ones, and easy days and days that go by in a heartbeat, but Sunday 19th was overall just a funny one, lots of chuckles in the audience and a nice genuine feel between the Halifax locals in the room and the online audience, I loved it!
Best result was the James Bond ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ wristwatch at £6,400, which was around the £6-£8k estimate we’d rated the item at – so reassuringly on-point! The Enid Blyton collection did well, and yet again, we had a very good day for jewellery, gold and silver pieces..
NEXT UP OUR NEXT SALE… so we’re on again on Sunday 12th March, which we’re labelling up as a Spring Clean/Spring Clear sale, a big catalogue and a bit of an allsorts for everyone feel for our buyers.. Keep your eyes posted and peeled across our Facebook page for updates and advance sneak peeks..
TV FOR US AGAIN THIS WEEK.. Another Antiques Road Trip experience is on TV this week, BBC1 3.45pm on Wednesday 1st March.. so tune in for yours truly and the team around 4.2o this Wednesday!
