As mandated by the order of Governor Lamont, our locations at 710 Main Street South and 50 Main Street North in Woodbury will be physically closed to the public until April 23rd. We support the Governor’s decision and are committed to doing our part to “flatten the curve”. We believe that our community health and safety must be our highest priority at this time.

In the meantime, however, we invite you to visit our website frequently for updates about our upcoming auctions and other events, specifically our Spring Fine Estates Auction scheduled for Sunday, May 17th. We are working remote and are still actively receiving and evaluating consignments for that auction. We have the ability to video conference to replicate and maintain the face-to-face contact that we have previously enjoyed with our existing and new consignors.

Please email or call 203-266-0323 and leave a message regarding your interest in consigning and we will email or call you back promptly. You may email photographs of individual items or room shots of groups of items.

We look forward to hearing from you.


Here is a recent testimonial from one of our estate consignors:
"I'll give you five stars every day of the week. You were great in all aspects of this. You're very professional and honest. It doesn't get any better than that. I'm so happy with your efforts I can't begin to tell you. I'll recommend you to anyone who is interested in your services. You are amazing. Thank you again for everything."
