or some, antiques fill a room. For others, antiques fill a life. Vikki Vines is one of the latter. Vikki is the top female auctioneer in Texas and arguably one of the top in the nation. Vikki started Gallery Auctions over twenty-five years ago and has created a worldwide buying trip under one roof.
A trip to Gallery Auctions holds the same excitement and passion that Vikki feels for the industry. Over her 25 years as an auctioneer, Vikki has traveled to England, Belgium, Argentina, Spain and France, not to mention the hidden antique alleys of the United States. Whether at a fair in a foreign country or a yard sale on the way to work, Vikki knows a find when she sees one.
ot only does Vikki know quality, she doesn’t do anything that’s not big. Ten years ago Vikki had the current location built and quickly filled the 27,000 square foot, three acre property to capacity with her treasures. Just recently Vikki sold the previous building and has moved Gallery Auctions just a few minutes East of the previous location. Moving between ten and fifteen 45 foot containers along with estates and consignments through Gallery Auctions monthly, Vikki has created the Southwest’s largest trade source.
After creating her very own antique empire, Vikki turned it into a family affair. Vikki’s son, Jon Goodling, has grown up in the world of antiques, a one year old when she went to auction school. The excitement of the auction world was contagious and Jon now works full time at Gallery Auctions. His specialty is mid-century modern and his eye for style is impeccable.
on’s advice and assistance to Gallery Auction’s clients is part of what makes a trip to Gallery Auctions successful. Whether it’s explaining the process to a newcomer or calling up the regulars to let them know he’s found something they will like, Jon’s lifetime of expertise in the industry is invaluable to the business.
A family business that has come full circle, Gallery Auctions provides something for every buyer from the dealers to the first time decorators to the connoisseurs of the art of antiques.
