We have not been to their Wednesday night auctions at the barn; however we have attended a few of Tillet & Damewood Auctioneers antiques and estate auctions on several occasions. Tillet and Damewood Auctioneers normally hold their auctions at their barn, but occasionally do an on-site auction. We have usually come away from their auctions with some pretty good bargains and their staff is both knowledgeable and friendly. They usually begin with box lots and then continue on to other antiques and collectibles. Their buyer’s premium is 10%.
We have attended a couple of Hunt Country Auctions’ antiques and estate auctions at the National Guard Armory in Warrenton, Virginia and have walked away with some pretty good deals. Hunt Country Auctions is professionally run and the auctioneer is both entertaining and fair. The times we have attended, they have had an eclectic mix of decent antique furniture, collectibles and jewelry as well as some box lots. The other thing we like about their auctions is that their buyer’s premium is only 10%.
Kathy Shumate Auctions also operates out of the National Guard Armory in Warrenton, Virginia. We have attended a couple of her auctions and found them to be down home country. Kathy Shumate Auctions has quite the following and usually has an eclectic mix of merchandise. The auctioneer usually begins with the box lots in the back of the room and it takes her awhile to work herself around to the better items. However, if you are patient you can come away with some pretty good bargains. The buyers premium is 10%.
We have only been to one auction at the Culpeper Auction Center in Culpeper, Virginia, but once was enough. We found that the auctioneer and staff were very professional and their antique furniture was superb. However, the type of merchandise that they carry draws a higher caliber of clientele and they don’t mind paying high prices, making it difficult for the average buyer to get a great deal. It’s no wonder we have seen the proprietor of Culpeper Auction Center buying at other auction houses to resell at his own.
At Auctions by Hartman in Catlett, Virginia, we found that they had an eclectic mix of merchandise up for auction. It was very down home country and when we visited them, they seemed to be unorganized and very slow. We found their prices to be reasonable, but most of the antique furniture needed some type of repair and most other things looked unkempt. The staff was very friendly and seemed very nice, unfortunately, we ran out of patience before being able to buy anything. Their buyer’s premium is 10%.
