I can't say enough about Cape Ann Auction. Professional, knowledgable and trustworthy are a few words that come to mind! They know quality and are extremely honest, which is a great combination. I have done business with them for a few years and I am always pleased with my transactions. I give them my highest recommendation!

We Stand With Ukraine
The War in Ukraine Goes on...

And the brave people of that country still need our help. There are many ways to give, but CAA finds that giving directly is the best way for us. 

You can give DIRECTLY to some Ukrainians by purchasing their digital products on Etsy!   The $ goes directly to the seller! 

Click on the image below to make a purchase from our friend Oksana. She owns the Etsy Shop ToysGallery. She's a  woman with a family who has chosen to stay in Ukraine because she loves her homeland. 

Besides her digital products, she makes the loveliest knitted toys and gives many away to children in Ukraine. 

We check in on Oksana and her family periodically, and are happy everytime we find out they're still safe!

Other than monitary donations, sharing links to her Etsy store will help too! We hope you will:)


Whippets for Ukraine!

from a qualified expert.

    That's Walt's appraisal methodology.
