Extra Viewings – We are offering extra viewings during the week leading up to the Auction.
Extra viewings will take place from Tuesday 31 August to Thursday 2 September between 2pm to 4pm.
As many of you will already know, the Community’s Auction will take place in the College refectory on 4th September.
This year we are extending our viewing times. Bids can be made in the usual way in the refectory on the day of the auction, we will be able to take some bids by phone and the greater viewing time will allow more time for people to leave commission bids. The quality of items remains high and there are lots to suit every purse. Star items include a gorgeous antique rocking horse, a 1950s Mouseman standard lamp an antique silver French ciborium 18/19 century and some really beautiful antiques from China. There are vintage Dinkeys, coins, stamps and collectibles of every sort. Oh yes, on a personal note, I will be donating a large section of my comic collection and cinema books.
In this year when there has been a large drop in revenue a really good auction would be very welcome. You could help in many ways. Come along and enjoy the day. You might find something really useful or beautiful. I do need publicity so share this news with friends and with any dealers near you. And pray for all who will be involved in making the auction a success.
