18th January 2021 Jewellery, Collectables & Interiors *POSTPONED* @ Drake's Auctions
Jan 18 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Accepting Entries:

Please note: Under current lockdown conditions, you may only leave your house for very limited reasons (please see here). This does not currently include dropping items for auction, or visiting an auction house (unless you are a member of staff). This obviously means we are unable to help you if you visit us on-site, and will be turned away if attempting to drop items for auction, in order for us to comply with the law as it stands.

We can still be contacted on 01822 616992 or via email info@drakesauctions.co.uk

Tuesday 5th January 2021 9.30am – 4pm

Wednesday 6th January 2021 9.30am – 4pm

Thursday 7th January 2021 9.30am – 4pm

Saturday 9th January 2021 9am-12pm (final entries)

Auction Info:

This auction is ‘timed online’, as we still feel it is not safe to host room bidders in a live auction format. This means you cannot bid live, either by telephone, internet or in the room.

All bids are online-only.

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.

5th April 2021 Online Only Auction @ Drake's Auctions
Mar 16 @ 10:00 am – Apr 5 @ 5:00 pm

We’re Back! (sort of) with a House Clearance & General Online-Only Auction

ONLINE NOW. BIDDING HAS ALREADY STARTED.

569 Lots. Over 99% without reserve, many lots starting at just £5
Take me to the catalogue!


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

This sale will be online only. This means no viewing.

How can I collect if I win?

Collection will be by appointment only, in line with Government guidelines for ‘Click and Collect’ for non-essential retail. Collection will run from 6th-10th April.

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. Please note, that on some lots we will be unable to add additional images, as many lots are stacked away in storage. We have done our best to add multiple images of most lots.


TIMED AUCTION means you can leave your bid(s) at any point between now and just before they close. Be warned though, bidding in the last 5 minutes will extend the end point of the auction for that lot.


We hope everyone has managed to keep safe, as well as keep boredom at bay over these last months. We will be offering another timed online sale in Mid-April of Jewellery, antiques, Mid-century and collectables. We are also planning to hold a LIVE (as in with an auctioneer and everything) in June to coincide with the relaxation of social distancing rules. More to follow!
