“Today, antiques are for everyone. People will use antiques in unexpected ways and unexpected places – from chandeliers in the bathroom to 18thcentury mirrors in the kitchen. As the green movement becomes de rigueur, re-purposing and re-using remains en vogue. Antiques are green, and as millennials catch the wave of this realisation, I predict by the 2020s, antiques will become the next ‘Ikea’ – aka the go-to choice for the first homeowners decorating their space.”
- Toma Clark Haines, CEO of The Antiques Diva & Co.
“The only rule is that all rules are off. We buy antiques today because they appeal immediately to our eyes and hearts, and then they enrich our minds. There’s also a rise in interest in pieces that show the hand of the craftsman, a sparkling cut glass vase, or a wonderfully weathered piece of folk art. Our eyes have been assailed for too long with mass-produced, machine-made rubbish lacking in soul!”
- Mark Hill, BBC’s Antiques Roadshow
Our Antique and Collectible Auctions are exciting and successful fundraisers for the Auxiliary. We’ve built a large following and raised almost $1,000,000 since Bryan Dodd offered to lead a group of volunteers in 1997.
This team of professional appraisers and dedicated team members work throughout the year to manage two events annually. Our reputation is well known for the quality of the items, the top-notch organization and the convenient venue.
Since 1959, the Auxiliary to Joseph Brant Hospital has been dedicated to helping patients and raising funds to support the ongoing development of the hospital. In 2012, the Auxiliary pledged to raise $5 million to support the hospital’s redevelopment and expansion project. The auctions help the Auxiliary meet this pledge annually.
We invite you to help us meet this goal by attending our auctions and bidding on items. Come and bring your friends to enjoy a fun day and go home with new treasures!
