Whenever possible, the best way to experience a Thomaston Place auction is to attend live. We pride ourselves as being a teaching auction company, and every auction is not just a chance to bid and win wonderful items, but an educational event.
Each feature auction is preceded with up to a week of public preview time. This means that you can come to our gallery and see the entire offering in person. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be there to assist you in examining any of the items that you are interested in before you bid. That’s right, pull out the drawers, turn items upside down to see the under side, black light the paintings, measure, feel it, smell it, and ask questions so that you know exactly what you are bidding on.
When the auction starts, the excitement begins! Each item will cross the auction block in the order that they appear in the catalog. You will hear the auctioneer describe each item, and whenever practical, give some history as to its significance and where the item came from. You will be able to observe bids coming from other live bidders on the floor, the phones, and online. We guarantee that you will be inspired. Have no fear though, we do not respond to head scratches or ear tugs, when you are ready to bid on your items, raise your paddle and bid with confidence.
All of our auctions are deliciously catered, and we provide comfortable seating in the air-conditioned sales room.
