The Auctioneer's View

Overall, I was very pleased with the results of our September Auction. Jewelry was particularly strong this month, especially the larger diamonds and quality designers like Cartier.  The platinum and diamond engagement ring that sold for $76,700 is the best result ever for our jewelry department.

We utilized five different online bidding platforms for this sale in additional to our in-house absentee and telephone bidding.  From tracking the bids on each platform, we generated sales that were 16.52% higher than using a single platform.  This increase in bids contributed an additional $96,605 in auction sales for our consignors!

What excited me most about our September sale was watching our fashion lots rise to the top.  The vintage handbag lot sold for a smashing $885!  Our client had discovered a  hidden ‘time capsule’ tote, preserved in her basement filled with these precious bags! What a fun surprise this was for her.  

I think that many people forget there is value in fine fashion especially when it comes to handbags and luxury apparel lines.  If you are looking for an outlet for your designer labels, consider sending them our way.  Designers that trend well are Hermes, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Judith Leiber, and Gucci just to name a few!
