At PFK we are extremely proud of the wide range of items that we are able to sell. Crucial to this is our understanding of the market and the differing buyers, marketing and selling strategies that different items need in order to sell effectively. Our Fortnightly Interiors and Fine & Rare auctions are specifically designed for selling and marketing different categories of items.
OUR FORTNIGHTLY INTERIORS AUCTIONS
Our Fortnightly Interiors Auctions are an auction-goers paradise: always comprising a wide and eclectic selection of general antiques and collectables, later decorative and household goods and also each containing a different specialist ‘themed’ section every fortnight. With internet bidding for every auction plus a regularly packed room of attending buyers, these auctions are a fast and effective place to sell and a not to be missed buying destination.
Fortnightly auctions are viewable three days prior to the sale, Saturday 9am – 12pm, Monday 9am – 5pm and Tuesday 9am – 6pm.
Live internet bidding is available for all of our auctions and fully illustrated catalogues can be found with our partner website www.the-saleroom.com around one week prior to sale (accessible from this website), where you can also register to bid live online.
Buying at Auction is an extremely popular method of making a purchase. Striking a balance between the impersonal nature of some online shopping environments and the realities of retail shopping in person such as fighting for a parking space, and crowd jostling at peak times, the Auction provides an array of interesting items for purchase – and you can chose to participate online or in person.
There is something intriguing about a diverse collection of unique items, all with a story to tell, combined with the exhilarating buzz of taking part, as you place your bid and seek to secure a great value deal. Of course, you never know what you’ll find from one sale to the next – and lovers of the homogenised, on-demand retail culture may well find the concept of the auction unsettling – but this is part of the thrill; if you’re a collector of a certain item, the chase is as much fun as ownership itself.
At PFK we aim to provide a well-organised experience with plenty of atmosphere. Many of our clients repeatedly visit us, with our welcoming environment and home-made refreshments on site, the majority choose to stay with us for most of the day. Also….dont worry, you cant accidentally buy something if you scratch your nose, that really is a myth, so come along and enjoy the fun!
