Thomaston Place Auction Galleries serves three key audiences – the general public, people who consign items to us for auction, and our auction bidders/buyers.
By providing appraisal services
like Free Appraisal Day
, we help the general public understand the value of their possessions. We also conduct in home appraisals, or “house calls”, where we provide a verbal assessment of a single item or an entire house. We will review items digitally via email, and we provide appraisals for estate or insurance purposes. Throughout the year we also travel through New England and beyond to conduct appraisal fairs that assist not-for-profit organizations with fundraising.
Our consignment services
are designed to guide families, individuals and institutions through the process of selling their heirlooms and possessions. Our thoughtful, discreet approach has resulted in an expanding base of families and institutions who entrust their treasures to us. We focus on creating the best possible experience for each consignor by providing restoration support, thorough research, broad marketing reach and no up-front costs to the consignor.
Our efforts to discover, research and present fine art and antique treasures to the buying public have helped us earn the respect of dealers, collectors, and museums worldwide. We provide extensive information and support to our customers because an informed customer bids with confidence. We offer easy auction participation due to multiple bidding formats
