Featuring a different collecting category from antiques, fine art and jewellery through to fine wines, spirits and vintage vehicles.


Mixed, eclectic sales of antique and later furnishings and effects, jewellery, silver, artwork and more, held fortnightly, immediately after the Carousel auction.


Themed gallery-standard lifestyle sales, with lots on offer all in excellent condition and curated by us, with interesting items ready for your home.

What are the Saleroom opening times?

Office hours are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. Please note we are closed for lunch 12:30pm-13:30pm.

Post-sale Thursday the saleroom is closed, so we can organise the saleroom for the next auction. The office phone lines and emails will function as normal.

Collection days are Friday & Monday after the sale. Collection outside of these days is by appointment only.

FROM 2020 OUR STORAGE POLICY IS CHANGING: buyers will have a week to collect. After one week, storage will apply at £5 + VAT per day per item. Items uncollected after 30 days shall be re-sold without reserve.
