Seller Information & Agreements

Important Pre-Consignment Information:

As a courtesy to our consignors, we will set aside lot numbers as requested for items that consignors know they will be selling. If you get too few numbers, more can be requested before the auction or on the day of the auction consignment check-in. Please call ahead for pre-consignment lot number assignments!
