Hegartys kicked off 2012 with a very successful Auction on Sunday 29th January. There was a huge crowd in attendance for the auction, and what was on offer, in terms of quality, variety and value did not disappoint, with 400 lots in all coming under the hammer from items as diverse as a 19th Century chart reader to a copy of “Bell’s weekly messenger” from October 1798.
There was a substantial collection of garden furniture for sale, including urns, garden planters and two sun dials which sold at very reasonable prices.
The feedback from the customers after the auction re-iterated the great value and quality that was on offer, many comparing the prices they paid for their purchases favourably with what they would have to pay for something not as unique in quality or style, in a regular retail outlet.
To home-owners, who are maybe daunted by the prospect of attending an antiques auction, we say “Why not come along and experience a very different retail experience, and be in with the chance of taking home something special that has stood the test of time, and is good for many more years to come!”
