The auctions run from 8:30 am to approximately 4:00 pm. Items are sold by the piece; if there is no bid per piece, the items are then sold by the lot.
If you decide to consign items to our auction, we charge a consigner’s fee (see rates below). In the week preceding the auction; we receive materials Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m and Friday by appointment.
