One change for this time around is that we’re going to have to cancel the Friday viewing day, as to be honest it’s been a year since my Mum having passed, and I need to go to Doncaster for the day.. Managing the auction is all-encompassing and a massive commitment as those of you who know me will be well aware of, but sometimes we all need to take a step back…
The team are looking forward to the sale on Sunday though, hopefully a bit faster than last time – tbf the first few hours of the 14th May auction were great, but then it all stalled and slowed down a little across the jewellery section.. Hopefully we can target being finished by 6/6.30pm 🙂 See you all at the weekend.. James
Good afternoon everyone, another sun day for us all, who would have forecast that back in the depths of mid-Spring!
So, just checking in with our followers on the website to let you all know of what’s in store for us as an auction house over the coming months… Firstly, the next sale is on Sunday 11th June, which will feature a good assortment of jewellery again, vintage toys, plus a large militaria assortment.
As a business we’re moving ahead through 2023, trying to re-visit some of what we’ve done well and areas that can be improved upon I’d say, and growing as we move past the second anniversary of our first auction, which was May 23rd of 2021 can you believe..
Sunday 14th May was a decent affair all-in-all, some interesting and nice quality pieces throughout, and a few highlights of note from a financial perspective – our Top-Ten features at the bottom of this blog..

Hi Followers and supporters, I hope you’re all well? So onwards and upwards we move through 2023 and as we’re heading towards some warmer days and sunnier skies, I realised that we haven’t sent out a blog post for quite a while..
Our next auction is on Sunday 14th and we’re pleased to announce that it will be a bumper jewellery sale, plus a great array of antiques and collectables of course, but as it stands, looking like a minimum of 250+ lots of good 9ct-18ct gold pieces, plus an array of decent watches including Rolex, Breitling, Vostok, Mathey-Tissot and Earnshaw examples.
We started off our second run of valuation days for 2023 last Saturday (22nd), with a Church appraisal day at Higherford Methodist near Nelson, are following that up this evening with an appointment-only evening in Elland, and finishing this Spring run, with an event at St Andrew’s in Mirfield, on Saturday 29th April, starting at noon..

Good afternoon followers and bloggers.. so, the 18th March sale albeit on a non-standard Saturday wasn’t too bad, a decent auction all-in-all, a few passes here and there, but some good results, as you’ll see from the below summary..
Our next sale is on SUNDAY 16th APRIL at 12pm, and is coming together to be a decent catalogue, so hopefully we’ll see an array of great results in a few weeks time..
Following enquiries from our January valuation days, we’ve got another couple in the diary for April, in Barrowford, Lancashire and also Mirfield, West Yorkshire on Saturday the 22nd and 29th respectively, so they should be good all things being well.
No more BBC TV appearances for a while I don’t think, unless I decide to telephone Cash in the Attic, Bargain Hunt or Mr Dickinson, but we’ll see.. As we’re getting used to the TV coverage I feel as if Jon and I, plus the wider team, are treating it as second nature.. cue the trumpet blowing and self-congratulations haha..

Here is the link to tonight’s Antiques Road Trip episode too, or the iPlayer link should I say – our bit of the broadcast is on at around 4.20pm on BBC1:
BBC One – Antiques Road Trip, Series 26, Episode 23
See you all during the viewing days and hopefully actively bidding within the sale on Saturday, from 12 noon.
A little bit of bad news for our customer base who were expecting a flurry of bidding activity as well as the flurries of snow this weekend, in that due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ve had to move our forthcoming sale date to next weekend, Saturday 18th March.
We’ve avoided Mothers Day on the Sunday for obvious reasons, so for a one-off, we’re hosting on the SATURDAY, with viewing on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th March from 10am-5pm.
Sorry again about the change, and keep posted across our Facebook page and website for updates on the catalogue.. Thank you.. James
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!
