We’re retiring from partial estate & consignment auctions & will leave this location. You’ll find the future Walnut Creek at business liquidations, executive estate sales & fund raisers. This auction consists of two primary issues: incredible merchandise from “waaay” back and a “thank you” party to all employees, consignors, buyers, bidders & others who have entrusted their merchandise to us. This sale features incredible collectibles in every category. We will sell collectible merchandise first & move to quantities of remaining boxes, sell-by-the-shelf deals, etc & then sell our auction merchandise, inc. our 16’ enclosed trailer, tables, chairs, office, mailing supplies, etc. We will post merchandise/photos the week before the auction at our web site.
