ORANGE, Calif. – Don Presley’s New Year’s Auction is unquestionably the most anticipated event of the year among those who follow the popular Southern California estate auctioneer’s sale calendar. While the caliber of merchandise to be offered will be everything his loyal clientele has come to expect, Presley said he is taking a slightly different approach than in the past for this year’s sale by scheduling an opening session on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012 and a second session on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide the Internet live bidding on both days.

“Each will be a full session containing some of the finest antiques and art we’ve ever had the privilege of offering to our customers, but with the Monday off in between, so everyone has plenty of time to prepare for their New Year’s Eve festivities,” said Presley. In all, more than 1,000 lots will cross the auction block.

“As always, we have a great mix in this sale, most of which comes from upscale estates,” Presley continued. “Imagine the fanciest European and American antique shop you ever walked into, and that will give you an idea of what lies in store for bidders this time. I think even the most sophisticated buyer would agree that many of the objects from Beverly Hills, Newport Beach and Palm Springs consignors are fit for royalty.”
