21st September Timed Auction – Jewellery, Antiques, Mid-Century Modern @ Drake's Auctions
Sep 21 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Catalogue:

Full online catalogue.

Viewing

As normal. Saturday 19th 9am-12pm, Sunday 20th 12-4pm

 

Auction Info:

This auction is ‘timed online’, as we still feel it is not safe to host room bidders in a live auction format.

If you did not bid in our last timed auction, a few notes;

    • All lots are available to bid on as soon as the catalogue is live, and will show if you’re the current leading bidder. You can leave your MAX BID, but it will only take either the START PRICE, RESERVE or the next available bid. It will then automatically bid for you. Much like eBay.

 

    • No ‘Bid Sniping’. If a bid is received in the last 5 minutes, 5 minutes will be added onto the end time, giving plenty of time to increase your bid. You will be emailed if you’re outbid.

 

    • We are unable to leave absentee bids for you, as we are unable to see what the max bids are at all. This is an ONLINE ONLY auction. Click ‘Register’ when browsing our catalogue, and sign up! It’s super easy to use.

 

  • Viewing will be Saturday 9am-12pm & Sunday 12-4pm. Please note there will be limited numbers in the room (max of 6 customers) at any one time, so please be prepared to wait. Once inside we ask you spend no longer than 15 minutes, to allow others to view. Please follow the one-way system once inside. Please bring a mask, as we will be unable to admit people onto the premises who are not wearing one.

 

Collecting Goods:

Successful bidders will be emailed an invoice at the close of the last lot of each auction. In this email will be a link to book an appointment for collection. If you are planning on bidding in both auctions, you may book a collection from Tuesday onward. Bidders who are only partaking in the Tools auction are encouraged to collect on Monday.

Nov 16 @ 10:00 am – Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm

 

Jewellery, Antiques, Collectables & Artwork: The Boredom Beating Online-Only Lockdown Sale!

ONLINE NOW. BIDDING HAS ALREADY STARTED. 580 Chosen lots of Jewellery, Collectables, Interiors, Ceramics & More.

Wait, I thought it was lockdown, how does this work?

This sale will be online only. This means no viewing and we have extended the length of the sale greatly, timing it for the end of planned lockdown. Surely lockdown will end on 2nd December and not be extended? Right Boris? Probably not. It will end on the 2nd December either way. As we are unable to accept entries at the moment, we thought why not just make the sale a bit longer?

How can I collect if I win?

Collection will be by appointment only (we’ve been running this system since we reopened in June anyway, so no change there). Whether this is a legal requirement or not depends on lockdown ending on December 2nd.

Online only? I like to look with my hands and not my eyes

Unfortunately, the current guidelines are clear on not letting members of the public onto our premises. We are still available to carry out condition reports, update images and answer any questions on lots before you bid. We have extended the length of the auction for this very reason.

Sounds good, any other surprises?

Funny you should ask. We’re hoping to bring another general-themed sale online next week. We figure we have a few hundred entries for that sale, so why wait? This will also be an extended-length sale.

Enough with the words, take me to the catalogue
