A full room of bidders at Itchen Abbas auction

A full room of bidders at Itchen Abbas

On a sunny afternoon at the village hall, 412 lots were photographed and mostly sold. We had our highest total sales in our nearly 10 years of auctions. One seller approached a £1,000 worth of sales. They also had the highest value item in the sale at £200 for the World War One and Two medals and the bronze Art Deco statue of a dancing (Salome perhaps) at £180.

The kitchen also reported bumper sales of their home made cakes. Mmmm!

Our next auction is at Badger Farm Community Center on the 8th June. We look forward to seeing you again.
