We are certain that there is something for everyone in this sale, with conservative estimates to attract bidding.

We urge collectors planning to attend this sale not to leave their viewing until the day of the sale as not too many people can view the same item simultaneously – so come on the Thursday or Friday – or arrange to view prior to Wednesday 18th September at our premises in Otaki! We are only 15 minutes from Paraparaumu Airport and ten minutes from Waikanae commuter railway station.  We can pick you up from either! (By appointment only).

Like last year’s sale we expect a huge interest with a large number of room bidders. My thanks go to Chris Burtt, David Smitham, Alan Jackson, Ken Markham and Simon Smelt, who have produced another great catalogue for our 36th sale, ably assisted by our office staff of Maree Malin, Jan Macdonald, Kirsten Fulford, Keren Malin, Paul Stark and Jane Smelt.  We look forward to your participation in this sale and wish you well with your bidding.
