Kruger Gibbons specialist antiques auction - September 2nd
PUBLISHED: 10:13 25 July 2013 | UPDATED: 10:13 25 July 2013
The summer season is now in full swing, a weekend that doesn’t go by without several antique and vintage fairs to go visit. July and August are notoriously difficult times within the antiques trade as the children break up from school and most people’s thoughts turn to summer holidays.
As Wimbledon fades in the memory, RHS Tatton blooms and then disappears, the cricket season dominates the TV; it seems strange to be thinking of our autumn antiques auction. However the planning for our 2nd September specialist antiques sale has commenced and we already have consigned the most beautiful bedroom suite we have ever seen!
We live in a world of built in wardrobes with most interior designers trying to convince us to live in simpler interiors. Beautiful objects, stylish items, popular vintage and eccentricities will always find a buyer that is why we are grateful we have partnered with the-saleroom.com to reach a much broader audience. It enables us to reach international parties stretching all over the world, with live online bidding together with our regular local dealers and collectors.
There are a growing number of collectors, interior designers and antiques dealers who keep their eyes peeled and look more and more at the regional auction rooms to find their treasures. Due to all the television programmes based in and around auction rooms, we are increasingly finding the public returning or visiting an auction room for the first time, even out of curiosity, capturing their imagination.
Our customer base is so surprisingly diverse from cute little old ladies bringing a vintage tea set across the door to house clearances, probate estates, couples downsizing, people moving into the area, disposing of furniture or desperately trying to find more items to fit in that big new Cheshire home. Whether you are downsizing, dealing with inherited items or just want to sell some assets, the auction process could suit you. Selling as part of a specialist online antique auction will see prices fetch more than 20% higher compared to general auctions.
Our 2nd September specialist antique auction is just around the corner, so if you have anything that may be of interest, we are always available for free appraisals or to chat about the wonderful world of antiques. We cordially invite you to visit our website and book your appraisal today with Wirral’s premier auction destination.
