The reason the header in the upper left corner reads “Don’t believe your eyes” is because of our 200+ lots we always have at our auctions, we only get to post a small percentage of photos. And since auction lots come in right up until the day of the sale, there are always a lot of surprises. And often the best items in the auction, are not even shown in the photos.

This will be another one of our CASH AUCTIONS, so please know that CASH will be the only accepted form of payment.

Here’s what the cat has dragged in so far:

ART: A large o/c painting of a ship by Robert Alexandar, vintage lithographed calendars from the Cape Ann Tool co. of Rockport, MA, an etching by Geo. Harvey Wainwright of Annisqaum, & more paintings, prints, antique photographs & tintypes etc.

Over 1,500 antique postcards including small town New England cards, cards of Gloucester, MA, Newburyport MA, beautiful Victorian embossed Christmas postcards, some real-photo cards, military cards & more.

Silver Morgan Dollars & other collectible coins, a large bucket of antique keys, a beautiful fossil & amethyst crystals, primitives, antique tools, sea-glass, paperweights, ephemera, jewelry, pottery, porcelain, lamps, decorating items, fabrics and much more!
We’ll have our usual 200+ lots crossing the block.
Please bring your own boxes and packing.
There’s no snackbar on the premises, but we’re tucked in between Dunkin Donuts & The 525 (Magnolia’s great new restaurant!)

Check out what’s new @ Cape Ann Auction Emporium at 8 Lexington Ave in Magnolia.

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.

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.

Reminder ~ Auction Tonight 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia 6:00pm. Inspection starts at 4:00pm.

What are you doing tonight? Do you love antiques, sit glued to the TV when American Pickers, Pawn Stars and Storage Wars are on? Do you get up at 5am to be ready for yard sales? Want to go shopping at a venue that has unique one of a kind items? Looking for a special gift for someone? What if that place let YOU be in control of how much you pay? If any of this sounds like fun, you should head over to 1 Lexington Ave in Magnolia tonight for the auction being held by Cape Ann Auction. The sale is filled with antiques, jewelry, coins, furniture, glass & china and much more. It starts at 6pm, but inspection starts at 4pm and there’s a lot of things to see so you should get there early.

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
