Estate Sale or Auction?

Fine Design recognizes that some estates possess items too valuable to reasonably sell in a three day local sale. With its national network of Auction Houses that have international clients and internet sales, Fine Design can find the right venue for your valuable pieces . Fine Design has relationships with Auction Houses in Chicago, Virginia, Houston, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Ohio, New York, and London.

Auction Houses have their specialties and Fine Design can determine what’s right for you. Fine Design has brokered to Auction Houses and /or private collectors:

  1. Couture Clothing

  2. A Harley Davidson Memorabilia Collection of over 400 Pieces

  3. Antique Dolls

  4. A Sports Memorabilia Collection

  5. Vintage Maps

  6. Chinese Art

  7. Jewelry

  8. Silver flatware and serving pieces

In organizing your residential (or commercial) contents for a tag sale, Fine Design does painstaking research on items identified as possibly having significant value.

At that point, it can be determined if the items should remain in the sale or be brokered privately to a collector or auction house.

Fine Design will advertise, organize, staff the sale and provide a pick up service for the remainder of the items. Cleaning services available upon request.

“The task of disposing of a lifetime of possessions belonging to my Mother seemed daunting and emotionally draining. In addition, I live out of town, making it even more difficult to clean out the property in time for sale to a new owner. I turned to Bronwyn to help with what seemed like an overwhelming job. Bronwyn answered all my questions, set out reasonable expectations and executed a plan to either sell or donate all of the items. She communicated effectively and frequently. The house was clean and ready to sell on time as promised. As a result of my experience, I highly recommend Bronwyn and her company Fine Design.”
