FAQ's

Questions on Consigning Items for Auction

  1. What items do you take on consignment for your auctions?

Because we divide our auctions into multiple galleries, we are able to handle items ranging from fine antiques to general household items.

  1. What are examples of the types of items sold in each Gallery?

Gallery #2 begins at 10:00 a.m. and usually finishes around 6:00 p.m. The auction begins with hundreds of box lots of glassware, knick-knacks, pots/pans, etc. and is followed by estate artwork, books and ephemera, antique toys and dolls, collectibles, quality household items, etc.

A second auctioneer begins selling in Gallery #3 at 11:30 a.m. This features basement and outbuilding contents with hand and power tools plus garden accessories and moves into a good selection of used furniture. Gallery #3 finishes around 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on a selection of as-found and primitive furniture and accessories.

Gallery #1 is our "sit-down" session and starts between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Gallery #1 features antique furniture, firearms, fine furnishings (Henkel Harris, Suters, VA Craftsman, etc.), quality used furniture, large appliances, good glass/china, art pottery, P. Buckley Moss originals and prints, silver, jewelry, etc., Gallery #1 normally finishes around 9:30 to 10:30 p.m.

  1. Do you accept one or two items for consignment or do I need to have an entire house full?

We are a full-service auction house and can handle full and partial estates, plus downsizings, basement and attic clean-outs, etc. We gladly accept small and large consignments and will build an auction that combines several consignors and estates to appeal to bidders.

  1. When do you accept Bring-In consignments?

Normally, consignments for auction are taken in on every other Monday. Due to limited storage space, you will need to e-mail us or call us at 540-434-4260 to arrange a specific date.

  1. How do you keep consignments from different people separate?

Every consignor is given a code letter(s) and their items are tagged. An inventory is made and updated as the items are sorted. All items are entered into the computer as they are sold. After the sale the computer report is matched to the inventory.
