It is with disappointment that we announce we will not be holding Sale #33 as scheduled.
The sale is ready to go, and we are proud to say it is the largest we have ever had, by far. However, in view of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Sparks Auctions team has decided to postpone the auction, originally scheduled for May 28th-30th, 2020. At this point, the situation is too uncertain to guess when we could proceed, so we are using a “date to be determined” approach. Please check our Upcoming Page for updates as they appear.
The fact that we have the advantage of offering live internet bidding during our sales saves buyers from having to come in person to our offices for the actual sale, as they can either bid live on the internet, by phone, or through an agent. We are in our thirteenth successful year of operating this way. The more difficult thing for us is accommodating the very important viewing of material in person. We are proud to present our sales with more online scans than anyone in the industry, but because we offer many large collections and box lots, we think viewing in person is an essential element to the experience. As you know, there are numerous Municipal, Provincial and Federal restrictions currently in effect that prevent us from having potential buyers come in to our offices to view.
Please feel free to contact me if you have material to consign for the following auction, which I am currently working on.
Rest assured that we will keep you informed as things progress. Thank you for your business, your understanding, and please stay safe and well.
Director of Lotting & Consignments
