I thought I would do a little post all about what I do, and what my job involves.
Although I studied Law at University, once I had finished I decided that I wanted to go into the family business (that sounds like Mafia talk! Oh deer!)
My family have ran the Central Auction Rooms for over 30 years, while the business itself being established almost 100 years ago.
There's my mum and dad, my brother Andrew and Me : ) I also have another brother, Terry, who pops in now and again.
We specialise in house clearances, working on behalf of Solicitors and Individuals. Clearing houses can be a lot of fun, as you never know what you're going to find. However it's a lot of hard work carrying things down stairs and moving furniture, plus sometimes you find things you wish you hadn't (since we clear a lot of older persons homes, I tend to find lots of hearing aids) YUCK!
Every 2 weeks we hold sales (On Tuesdays, with Viewing on the Monday)
We hold General Sales (bits and bobs of household items, usually lots of glass, china and general furniture (beds and sofas etc)
Then we hold Police Sales, without a doubt our most popular sales. The Police Sales are the Found and Seized Property which the owner hasn't claimed back (they prefer the insurance payout) So we sell the items. The Police Sales can be very random, its amazing what people will steal.
A few weeks ago, we had tons of Jeans and Jackets from Diesel and Jack Wills, all stolen during the Manchester riots. We mostly get lots of bikes and tools too.
We also hold Antique Sales, in fact we have one TOMORROW, so I thought I would do everyone a little post all about the interesting bits and bobs I've found in the Antique Auction.
These little Silver Salts are really beautiful and shiny too!
