…making a few changes!
I have been a little negligent in updating this posting, but like most of you, it gets busy!
Lots of work outside, plus of course doing the auctions, but now I am taking a moment to update you on what we are up to for the summer.
First change, and I guess the biggest, is the Saturday night auctions.
It gets very busy during the summer months, and it is much harder to fill the auction halls on a Saturday. We do some Friday night auctions, and will have an upcoming Monday night auction in Bond Head on July 18th, but I wanted to do something different for Pottageville in the summer months.
My idea is to do a Saturday night auction
. Now that is not traditional for the auction business. There have been a few auctioneers running successful Saturday night auctions, but most stick to the traditional daytime or weeknight sales.
I think Saturday night will have a special feel to it. People have all day Saturday to do the lawn work, lawn sales, other auctions, whatever.
Saturday night they can make the auction a night out. A social thing. Maybe call a few friends and invite them along as well.
For the majority of people, auctions are a day or night out. It is fun and interesting, and can be something a little different for them. The social part of an auction is very important. It is a chance to meet up with friends, connect with other dealers and collectors, and for some people, just a good excuse to get out of the house.
I have selected items I think will fit a Saturday night atmosphere. Lots of primitive and country items, good furniture and of course a nice selection of quality smalls, for the more serious collectors.
We always try and make our auctions fun and interesting, so I think they will lend themselves well to a Saturday night auctions.
Sunday sales are good, but somehow we just don’t seem like a Sunday auction.
Some hopefully you can join us for our first Saturday night auction on June 25th.
I am looking forward to it! Make a night of it!
