We can assist you in dispersing your firefighting antiques and collectible, whether its one item or a life-time collection.
Do you have items that you need to disperse from your collection or those of a loved one? Do you need extra cash fast? We will purchase a single item or the entire collection.
How does it work?
We accept consignments that we will market and sell for you on several different platforms. These platforms include our website, eBay, shows, and direct marketing to existing customers. In the near future we will be offering our own auction company, and will have the ability to run several fire antiques auctions per year.
Our consignment rates are extremely competitive with those of auction houses, eBay resellers, and general line antique dealers.
It is important that we work for you to ensure the most return on your investment. We will discuss selling platforms and determine the best platform or platforms to sell your items. We will use our past sales experience, on-line auction data bases, and in-person auction data that we have collected over the past 25 years to assist in determining the best methods for you to realize the best sale prices.
Sadly, the Allentown Spring Melt and auction was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving a huge void in the firefighting antiques community.
We are currently working on setting up a fire antiques auction later this year that will be held in person. More information will follow as details are worked out. Be sure to subscribe to our page to ensure you are notified of updates as they are published.
We will be working in the future to bring both live auctions and internet based auctions to the fire collecting community. We anticipate holding one to two in-person auctions per year as well as several smaller on-line only auctions to serve all of our consignors.
