In house the anticipation for the August Fine sale was high, with it being our first fine sale since we’d all come back to work. Before the cataloguing was finished we’d all made guesses about how big the sale was going to be. We all figured it was going to be a decent size sale, but didn’t image it would turn out to be a 763 lot monster of a sale! Viewing was great, with lots of positive feedback about the lots in the sale, and plenty of enthusiasm was building for various sections of the sale, including a lot of interest in the Railwayanna and the bank notes.
Sale morning arrived, and the auction house was absolutely buzzing with excitement; bids coming in thick and fast, bidders arriving to stake their spot in the saleroom and and last minute viewing going on. It quickly turned into a fun, epic day, with the auctioneer on the rostrum for over 8 hours, stopping only for a technical hitch. There were many highlights to the day, and the feedback has been fantastic from our vendors and buyers alike. Now that the sale is done, time to do the wind up to the sale, and start the process all over again, in preparation for our next sales (9th September General Sale)
