How often do you have auctions?
Every Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. and occasionally on Saturdays. Check our Auction Calendar for information.
Who can bid?
EVERYONE! Gallery Auctions caters to the trade (dealers, decorators) but the public is welcome to pick up a bidder’s paddle.
When can I preview?
Gallery Auctions has an open-door policy. Visit Wednesday through Friday, look around, and see what’s incoming. The best days to preview are Thursday and Friday from 9am to 4pm as most of the items are set up for sale at this time. The later in the week you visit, the more you see. We open for preview at 8am on auction days and we also encourage bidders to walk freely throughout the merchandise for the duration of the auction. Occasionally we have a weekend preview for a few hours. It’s best to check our website or watch our facebook page at www.facebook.com/galleryauctions for announcements.
How can I pay?
Payment in full is expected the day of the auction. The auction payment will include the bid amount, a buyer’s premium of 17% (there is a 2% discount for immediate payment via cash or check) and state sales tax on the entire purchase unless you provide proof of exemption from sales tax. We accept American Express, Discover, Master Card and Visa, checks with proper identification and cash.
How long can I leave my merchandise?
The best idea is to take your new treasures the day of your purchase. If you cannot take all your items that day, all purchases need to be picked up within three working days. If you need longer, please make arrangements with the office staff.
