White's Auctions is pleased to announce the opening of a new auction hall in Middleboro, Massachusetts. Entering our 23rd year, it is with much excitement and anticipation that we enter into this next chapter in our growth as an auction service.
The addition of this very spacious facility will provide us with flexibility and will enable us to better serve our consignors and customers.
The hall is located just outside Middleboro Center in the midst of two museums, the Middleboro Public Library, Police and Fire stations and will have ample parking.
The building is in the process of extensive renovation and will be completed in early May.
WE ARE EXCITED TO WELCOME YOU ALL
PRESENT & NEW CUSTOMERS & CONSIGNORS
TO OUR NEW GALLERY.
The June 28th auction was the first auction in our new Auction Gallery.
The Reception Preview from 4pm to 7pm on Sunday June 26th was very well received. It was catered by Leslie of "The Main Drag" on the corner of Jackson Street. (The Main Drag also provided a cash food service during Tuesday's auction.) Beer and wine service was provided by Bill Fuller's Bartending Service of New England based here in Middleboro.
The auction on Tuesday night, June 28th, hosted a full house with standing room only. Bidding was active on the floor, on the phone and by absentee. In addition, over 1850 bidders registered to bid on line through Invaluable.com, auctionzip.com and Ebaylive.com, as well as a European internet platform. Approximately 1/3 of the auction sold to the internet but the highest winning bids sold to the floor or to the phone.
The Antiques and the Arts Weekly covered this auction so watch for that feature in the next near future publication dates.
We are busy now with the "after" auction functions (invoicing, packing and shipping, paying consignors, etc).
We are also busy putting together our next two auctions to take place the next couple of months or so. One will be a General Estates Auction and the second one another live and internet Antiques Auction.
