Good Day One and All

We hope you all are keeping well and safe.

First of all, I would like to thank all our customers, vendors, and staff in making the last event on the 9th and 10th May a stunning success and from the comments from many of you a very entertaining two days.

It seems so strange not to hold weekly sales, but it is impossible to carry on with them at the present time. This is mainly due to having to run the saleroom with a skeleton staff and to put together a 600 plus weekly sale in two/three days is out of the question.

With us having to spread the sales out we have more time to prepare. This means because we are still not allowing anyone in the saleroom to view items, we are spending more time on the catalog adding more information about the items such as weight, dimensions, working order, condition, etc. We will again be using messenger and Whatsapp for our visual viewing days.

I would like to announce that over the last fortnight we have put together another two-day event. This one, like the last will be held at our salerooms at Cobridge Hall, Waterloo Road, Cobridge, Stoke On Trent.
This event will be uploaded to all three live bidding platforms today 27th May 2020. This sale has a total of 1,315 lots, which makes it slightly larger than the previous one in May.
Lot number 1 to lot number 580 will go under the hammer on Saturday 13th June, commencing at 12 Noon. Lot Number 581 to lot Number 1200 will then go under the hammer on Sunday 14th June, again commencing at 12 Noon.

I hope you can join us again and make this event as good or even better than the last one.

Now for the important bits !!!!!
