Starting in the spring of 2015, Showplace Antique & Design Center began holding our unique bi-monthly no reserve estate auctions, which have grown exponentially in both attendance and popularity. With live audiences now numbering in the hundreds, some come to watch, some to drink coffee and network, and most to bid and enjoy the fun and fast-paced proceedings
These exciting sales are held on the first and third Sundays every month, and offer a wide array of items, including fine art, jewelry, decorative art, Asian art and antiques, silver, furniture and collectibles. The property offered is acquired by purchasing entire collections; our pieces are always fresh to the market.
The sales are streamlined in their simplicity, with most items open at $50 - $100, and precious metals open just below melt value. There are no hidden reserves.
All are invited to visit our extended previews, which are held during Showplace’s operating hours, Monday – Friday 10 AM – 6 PM, Saturday and Sunday 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM, for the 12 days preceding each auction. Come view our next collection!
If you have any questions about our policies, the sales, or items you have an interest in, please don’t hesitate to call the auction department at 212-633-6063 ext. 804, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will reply promptly.
We welcome inquiries about selling estates, and will be happy to come to you on-site to see your items. You may also email or send photos to email@example.com

A bidder may place their bid with us in one of three convenient ways: (1) register to bid live online, (2) submit a phone bid form, requesting that we contact them to take their bid over the phone, or (3) submit an absentee bid form with bid amounts. Phone bidders are contacted during a sale when the lots they would like to bid on are about to come up for sale, and place their bids with auction house staff. Absentee bidders need only to submit a bid form on which they will place their bid limit prior to the auction. If an absentee bidder's winning bid is less than their specified bid limit, they are only obligated to pay the final increment realized live at auction (for example, if someone bids $500 on a lot and outbids the room at $350, then they only need to pay $350 for the lot).
Showplace guarantees the medium and materials of every item in our auctions. If for some reason we have mis-listed an item, the buyer may obtain an opinion in writing from a recognized expert. If the expert judges the item inauthentic or otherwise misrepresented, it may be returned to Showplace in the same condition as at the time of sale, and the buyer’s full purchase price will be refunded. Showplace does not guarantee signatures.
