A Special Message from Don Presley
Friends, I have amazing news to share with you. On June 29, 2014, I will be conducting a true, unparalleled no-reserve, no-opening bids auction of one of my good friend’s complete inventory of his Beverly Hills Antiques store.
This is an end of an era sale, a million-dollar inventory with absolutely ZERO minimums and ZERO reserves. Everything will sell, with some items potentially going for as little as $1.
After years in business selling fine art, antiques and collectibles, my friend is calling it quits and shutting the doors forever.
Don Presley Auction has been been chosen by the owner to conduct the complete liquidation. This is indeed a very rare opportunity to bid on some of the finest antiques and collectibles where the market will decide the price by competitive auction bidding. As I mentioned, the final price will be determined by the bidders, regardless of cost or loss to the consignor.
Never in my 47 years in the auction world have I had the pleasure of selling this kind of inventory without reserve prices, nor have I even heard of such an auction like this. As an example, a $10,000 KPM plaque is included in the auction inventory. The owner said, “Don, if it only brings a dollar, sell it!”
This is without a doubt a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for collectors and dealers to determine the final value of this exceptional inventory.
Important note: This is not – REPEAT – not a bankruptcy or forced liquidation. This is simply an owner who has had a wonderful time in the high-end antiques business and has decided to close and retire. He told me, “Don, I have no intentions of reopening and do not want to put anything in storage. It’s not a matter of money – I simply want to liquidate the store in its entirety. It’s that simple! If it only brings $1, sell it! If it doesn’t sell, do not bring it back!”
Wow, folks, now that’s stronger than three acres of garlic!
