Update on our 7th November Auction – Top 20

Good afternoon everyone, hope you’ve all had a lovely week and that you enjoyed Sunday’s sale, some ups and downs, but a good day all-in-all, happy vendors and happy buyers!

The highlight was how the Barbie dolls performed, my most unexpected hammer of day was £130 for the Victorian Gypsy Mirror, and my heart-warming chuckle of the day was seeing Sally (Office Manager) bringing in some throws from our house for buyers to wrap around them in-case they got too cold 🙂

Psssstt.. PS – if you can keep a secret, we’ve still got one of the cheapest ‘standard’ like-for-like seller commission rates in Yorkshire, just 10%+vat… I don’t think its out there yet as I hear a rumour that people are paying 15-20% or more elsewhere, plus various charges like lotting fees etc… Just thought it would be worth a reminder 😉
