Our Family Difference.


Professional Expertise

With an extensive knowledge of Antiques, and Vintage goods coming from years in the retail business we use our appraisal expertise along with the latest research technology to assess accurate values for items.  We not only understand the value of the items, but the market and pride ourselves in finding the right balance of maximizing the price of an item with what the market will bear to move the item quickly to realize the profits.

We also utilize the best marketing practices to promote the sale.  We have built a solid following which guarantees great turnout at tag sales and outlets to allow us to conduct buyouts for fair prices.


Trustworthy & Transparent

We believe honesty is the best policy in life and in our business.  Every sale comes with a complete list of items sold and how much they sold for.  While we would love to believe that  the world is free from shady characters, unfortunately the most common place for people to scam customers in this business is in what items have sold and for how much.  When we sign a contract with a client, we enter whole-heartedly into a partnership in which we believe that if we do better for a client we do better.
