Auction Highlights – 28th March 2019

Australian pottery collectors were out in full force last night.  Some might say they were slightly potty as high prices were paid due to the spirited bidding.

We are enjoying working on next week’s Toys, Books and Ephemera auction which is shaping up to be another boomer.

It’s not too late to submit entries.  You have until 2pm on Tuesday April 2nd to drop off items.
