2014 will mark some change to our event.
The "COLLECTORS SALE" will also be an Open
House, a party for all our customers and friends. A selection of wines, cheeses and other goodies will be served each day. Collectors,
dealers and first time visitors will be coming and going throughout the weekend. Some are locals, others from across
the country, but all are here to attend the weekend events highlighted by The Philadelphia Antiques Show.We hope
they will put our sale on their agenda.
What's so special about "The Collectors Sale"?
Many of our buyers are repeat visitors who know they will see and perhaps purchase good
examples of American antique furniture and antique needlework. Some of the items offered will be fresh
to the market and others will be great consignments from private collections. There is always something
rare or unique, or both, and there are always several real treasures. In addition, items from our regular inventory will
be offered at special prices.
Our selections are offered
at sensible prices and we have flexible payment terms. Prices are not inflated by the buying and selling premiums
and the advertising expenses of other venues. In addition, it is important to remember that all retail purchases
are unconditionally guaranteed and sold on approval for two weeks after date of purchase.
Finally, there is the private, exclusive nature of the event. Buyers know
that only the others attending will have seen their purchase. There are no sale previews and no published prices
or pictures in magazines, tabloids or auction data bases.
Why should I be a consignor to "The Collectors Sale"?
Certain advantages to the consignor are much the same as to the buyer. Your item
is not overexposed and if unsold retains its future value in the marketplace. Our consignment fees are reasonable and
there are no charges unless your object is sold. All merchandise in our possession is fully insured and carefully
handled by experts. Prices are established with your input and our market research. If needed , certain
needlework can receive minor conservation at no charge with the permission of the consignor.
As the originators of this sales concept seven years ago we have the experience,
we have had great results and we have many very happy buyers and sellers.
This concept is a proven way to safely offer your valued
possessions to the market without risk.
We are continuously evaluating potential consignments for the upcoming
sale in April, 2014. We hope you will contact us.
