As many of you will already know, the Community’s Auction will take place in the College refectory on 4th September. In order to provide reasonable spacing we hope to have viewing on the 2nd, 3rd and the morning of the 4th and to have the larger items on display in a separate room. 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. If you have something you would like to donate, please contact me. I might need the help of drivers willing to collect and deliver. 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.
