What's in our New Years auction, and where did it come from?

Before we present the list of 220 lots that are in our New Year's auction, here's a little bit about how we got some of it and where it came from!

The story behind the Great Salt n Pepper collection of November 2023! In November we were approached at separate times by two brother's who had their mom's salt & pepper collection. There's reputed to be between 1,000 and 2,000 set! More shakers than you could shake a stick at. JUST about every imaginable form is in this collection. You've seen some in our last few auctions, and your gonna see more! The sweet thing, is many of them were presented to their mom as gifts when family and friends vacations. She was the kind of woman they all thought to bring a gift back to. Sweet!

Art - believe it or not, much of the art in this auction, the last few auctions, and auctions to come, came from a single estate of an antiques / art dealer in Rockport, Donna Dussault - Granite Shore Gallery, Rockport) MA. It was a referral by a friend in the business, and we bought out 4 storage spaces of art.

The Sterling Jewelry - This came from an estate in Manchester, of which the executor is still sorting out. We hope to get invited back!

Of course there's more stories, each item has it's own story. But we can't tell you all our secrets!
