Selling

We are always accepting quality consignments in a wide variety of categories.  If you have items you wish to be considered please contact us.  Before consigning, an appraiser provides a consultation to determine if the items are appropriate to sell at auction. They can also review the terms of our contract at this time. At the gallery our team of experts examine each piece in terms of condition, attribution, and age.  These factors help determine the best sale for your items:

Gallery Select Online Only Auctions occur every two to three months and are an assortment of vintage and antique collectibles, furniture, sterling, china, art and more. These auctions are online only and sold from our gallery, for the consignor who does not have a house full of items, but would like to downsize. 

Collector Auctions occur approximately every three to four months.  These auctions often focus on a particular type of item: decorative arts, Americana, coins, militaria, etc.  Most Collector auctions are listed on multiple online platforms including Live Auctioneers and Invaluable.

Specialty Auctions occur seasonally.  They offer a variety of high-end antiques including fine art, fine jewelry, sculpture, important furniture, vehicles, and more.  

Whether you have a single item or an entire collection we would like to hear from you.  You may contact our office directly via email, info@farmer-auctions.com or call (540) 384-0100 for more information about our rates and the consignment process.
