Q: What kinds of items do you buy?
A: We buy gold, silver, antiques, curios and collectibles.
Q: I don’t want to sell. Can you give me a loan on my items?
A: We are not a pawnbroker and cannot offer loans. But we will offer some of the highest values for your items if you decide to sell.
Q: How much will you pay for my gold, silver, or antiques?
A: We will need to see the item before we can give you a price. We evaluate every piece for authenticity, condition, demand and our ability to liquidate. We then will make you a fair offer that reflects up to the minute market conditions. Keep in mind the big ads you see in the paper are expensive and the other guy is not going to give you top dollar because of those ads aren’t cheap. we prefer word of mouth advertising, ask anyone about us see if we treated them right?
Q: How does an auction work?
A: We offer high-quality items to the public. We ARE A NO RESERVE AUCTION, meaning any bid can win. We allow multiple bidders (both in person AND on the internet) to compete against each other to win the item. Highest bidder wins the item.

A: We offer the opportunity to preview in person on Saturday at our auction house. Additionally, bidders may view items online through our website.

A: It depends on the items you sell.
You will receive 65% of the final bid amount on general merchandise.
75% of the final bid amount on motorized vehicles and of the final bid amount on gold, silver coins, jewelry, and firearms.
Q: Can I decline to sell if the final bid is not high enough for my item?
A: We will always work diligently to get you the most for your items, but we operate a “No reserve” auction. Once an item hits the auction block, it will be sold to the highest bidder.
Q: When will I get the money from my items?
A: We cut the checks for consigners no later than the Wednesday following the auction.
