Rumors of my death are greatly exagerated – Mark Twain
The above Mark Twain quote is one of my favorites and I’ve wanted to use it for a long time. I’ve never had a reason to do so – until now.
Recently you may have heard that Cape Ann Auction was going out of business. Let me put those rumors to bed.

Cape Ann Auction is NOT going out of business.
Far from it!

Last August we opened the Cape Ann Auction Emporium at 8 Lexington Ave in Magnolia.

That store has been very busy. As many happy customers will attest we are stocked with a lot of great treasures and all prices have room for dealers to make $

Between the store and the many house-calls we’ve had for buying merch., it’s been necessary to slow down our schedule for auctions & other events.

At any given time we may announce an auction, but the growth of the store is demanding all of our energy right now.

In fact:

It looks like we’ll be expanding to a bigger space next door to #6 Magnolia Ave! More on that as it develops.

Also in the wings is a revamp of our 4000+ page website at http://www.auctionwally.com
and our http://www.capeannauction.com

The sites will be more interactive with planned special events at the store!

What’s New in the Store?

We’ve recently acquired a nice selection of fine art:

1
Vera Eugenia Andrus (1896-1979)
Well known Rockport MA artist

 
We have 8 of these large hand-carved panels by a Russian artist.

2

 

What can we do for you?
Do you want to sell your quality items?

3

We just sold this Guy Bardone ($2,000) for a client and we can help you sell your fine art too!

Something for everyone!

We do have plenty of bargain price deals such as our
“All for One Price Outdoor Sale Table”

Right now, we have dozens of antiques & collectibles on that table at $3.00 each or 2/$5.00

We would GREATLY appreciate it if you could help us out and spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, OTB, email,… carrier pigeon.

Discovery Auction (Walk-a-Round Style) Today January 20th – Monday night – 6pm (Inspection 3-6) 1 Lexington Ave. Magnolia Village in Gloucester, MA 01930

Discovery Auction

Extreme Snow Date Tues. Jan. 21st

Those of you who’ve attended our most recent events, know that well, we haven’t really had any RECENT events, because we’ve been very busy stocking up the old warehouse and this Discovery Auction is going to be jam packed with treasures!

What exactly IS a Discovery Auction?

A discovery auction is probably the most exciting and fun of all types of auctions to attend! No one really knows what’s going to be there. OK, so we have an idea, but up until the day of the sale, even we don’t know everything that the auction will include. That’s because we’re going to pack it with the best, most unusual, profitable loot we can find, right up until the day of the sale!

What! No listing? No pictures?!

Nope. We may post a few on our Facebook Page or on www.capeannauction.com

You don’t really have any stuff yet do you? That’s why there are no pictures.

Wanna bet? :) Seriously, we are packed for this sale. But posting tons of pics and posting a detailed listing is time consuming, time better spent on getting the sale ready!

What will the cat drag in…

While we won’t give you specifics, we can tell you that there will be lots of antiques, glass & china, ephemera, furniture, box-lots & surprises!

Food?

A light snack bar & coffee by Glosta Joes!

Terms:

Cash, checks & credit cards accepted w/ID

Helpful tips:

Bring boxes & packing, get there early enough to inspect, and be prepared to be on your feet for a while. This is a walk-a-round auction with no seating. (Be wary of standing too close to friends who may want to bid on the same things you do!)

Buyer’s Premium?

N-O-P-E!

What do you mean by Extreme Snow date?

We will have the auction unless there are severe, unsafe driving conditions. Check our website or our Facebook page if you have questions about cancellation

Today !Flea Market/Auction Dec 6th. 5-8pm

flea bananas

Friday December 6th, 2013 Cape Ann Auction continues it’s “First Friday of the Month” evening sales. Last month we billed it as an indoor yard sale. But since we had over one dozen other people setting up with us, most who’ve signed on again!5-8pm. Doors open at 5pm sharp, sorry, NO EARLY BIRDS.  
1 Lexington Ave (In the Charles Jones Hall at the MLCC) 
Magnolia Village in Gloucester, MA 01930So this time, CAA is changing up the theme a little bit and we’re billing it as a flea mark & auction.  We’re looking into the possibility of this becoming permanent and growing event.First, we’re calling it a flea market, because most of the people that set up sold pretty cool vintage or antique items.At 7 pm promptly, CAA will put up lots on the auction block that were displayed earlier in the flea market as AUCTION ONLY items. This will be different from our usual seated auctions in the following ways:

  1. There won’t be any seating.
  2. It will be a “cash only” auction, meaning that each item will be paid for in cash, immediately after we sell it. (So bring plenty of change!)
  3. After Cape Ann Auction is finished selling it’s auction lots, it will open up the floor to flea market vendors who want to sell some of their items at auction.

If you live on or near the North Shore, or plan on visiting during this time, please help spread the word about this fun event! We appreciate any Facebook Shares, Tweets, Google Plus adds,  email forwards etc.

Thanks, we hope to see you there! Don’t forget, there won’t be any early birds allowed in.

Auction! Sunday – Sept. 8th 5pm (preview 3-5)

The next Cape Ann Auction to be held March 26, 2013 6:00pm Preview from 4:00pm-6:00pm

Walt Kolenda who runs the auction is fantastic and a treat to watch. Even if you do not go to buy go to see and hear. I know I was smiling most of the night.

Walt Kolenda ~ Auctioneer extraordinaire

March 4th I had the pleasure of going to the Cape Ann Auction at the Magnolia Library
It was my second time attending one of these. I was so confused the first auction with all the number amounts going up and down and all, that I did not bid on anything.
This second time was a little different. I had a method to my madness. There was nice oak dresser I had my eyes on. I got to bid on it but once again got a little excited and lost the bid.

IMG_0224
They had this real cute little woodpecker toothpick grabber that I would have loved to have in my possession  I did bid on that but it went up so fast I gave up and wasn’t willing to pay what the winning bidder did. I checked online and it the past they sold from anywhere from 7:00 to 54.99 dollars. I think that one went for 25.00 dollars.

Who knows, maybe I will own one someday. This one is on Ebay for 54.99. Way to high for me.

eb w
It’s amazing to me how a $3000 mint cherry table went in the low hundreds and a beautifully crafted schooner went for 330.00. Walt said the owners paid at least a thousand for it.

IMG_0222

What I did end up bidding on and walking away with was this cute push toy. When pushed a little bell goes off at each cycle. So I did not leave empty handed after all and for 5.00 dollars…oh what a deal.

DSC03187
The next auction will be on March 26th,  and they plan on having them twice a month if not more.

This is also where the first auction I went to took place. It was a lot of fun too.
The other address is 17 Kondelin Rd, Gloucester Ma. They will be having indoor yard sales from this address I have been to two this winter and hope to attend many more. There are lots of treasures to be found at these sales
