The Collector Auctions operates on the Internet. Prospective Buyers can register to bid at the website prior to the Auction. Bidders must provide their name, address, and banking information. They should bring suitable identification and be aware of any restrictions or time limits. Bidders are responsible for all legal and administrative fees.
The Collector Auctions feature a wide range of items from art to fine furniture. During the London auction on 19 May, you can expect to see works of art with distinct craftsmanship and provenance. You will be able to bid on these pieces online or visit the auctions on Friday. This way, you can bid for items you love, and then pick them up on the Saturday after.
In addition to art, jewelry, and collectibles, other popular items available for auction include vintage Coca-Cola advertisements, U.S. coins, comic books, sports cards, memorabilia, and the personal effects of celebrities. US stamps are particularly popular among collectors. Statistics show that 11 percent of Americans collect US stamps. This figure increases in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, and Eastern Europe.
The auctions are a popular event. Millions of people watch them on television and 500,000 attend in person. Not only do they get to watch auction action live, but they also get to mingle with celebrities and shop at the Exhibitor Marketplace.
