Auction Party invites people to hold an auction in their very own home with the possibility of turning in a big profit. There are risks though, with no guarantee that the host will make their money back.
Each day a local dealer will place sealed bids on up to five items. The host must decide whether to go with the bids in the room, or take a chance and go with the bid in the envelope.
Secret and surprise bids all add to the intrigue. Our professional auctioneer is Tom Keane from Chiswick Auction House.
Over the weeks leading up to the auction, Tom has helped the home owner put together their collection. It may be item-themed (armchairs, vinyl, mirrors, chinaware) or it might be date-themed (gothic, vintage, art deco, regency). Every auction will be different, and every auction will have a huge variety.
