Our 3rd July Auction is moving ahead one week, to Sun 10th July…

Regrettably, we’re having to move our next sale ahead one week, to the following Sunday, so the 10th July..

I am sorry to anyone who’d planned around the original 3rd July date, but as it stands and has stood, there are just too many circumstances contriving together, that have made this Sunday unworkable and not in everyone’s best interests..

Apologies again and thank you for everyone’s custom and patience..


Our Next Sale on Sun 3rd July – Catalogue to follow on Wednesday

Good afternoon everyone, hope you’re all well and staying safe – so this Sunday’ catalogue is regrettably taking us a little longer than normal to get uploaded, so as it stands, it’s looking like going online via Easylive and The-Saleroom, best case from Wednesday (29/06) morning.

Its again a good assortment of Collectables, Jewellery, Homewares and on this occasion a good chunk of toys, both vintage and some more modern – the toys include Dinky, Corgi and Matchbox Die Cast, Hornby and Triang Railway Sets, Steiff Bears, Barbies, Lead Soldiers + Britains, allsorts!

Lots of rings and jewellery this time around – 75% all there to be sold and without reserve, from lot 150 onwards.., plus the second part of the Con Cluskey Estate Sale from lot number 40 onwards..

Thank you for your patience and support and all the best for your bids at the weekend!

A recap on our Sunday 15th May Sale!

Good evening everyone, I must say time goes slowly when I think back that our sale was only a week ago today.. It was an interesting day and outside of us having accepted a couple of Rolex watches with too high/optimistic reserves, it was a great sale.. Whether it be a number of new buyer faces, our new sale-room bidding platform partnership improving, or the range of collectables that overachieved, it was a successful day all-around!

Our catalogue for 12th June is already looking interesting with additional appointments in the book for this week and next, plus we’re accepting goods and consignments all the time, so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to sell with us across either this next auction or on 3rd or 24th July..
