The auction business is alive and well in Middle Tennessee! Traditionally, New Year’s Day is a huge day for auctions, and this year was no exception. Free black eyed peas and cornbread were certainly a good draw for those live auction events!
Crowds were good for both live auctions and online auctions. What sold for decent prices, you ask? Furniture accent pieces seemed to top the list, though chairs, bookcases, lamp tables, sideboards that could double as living area accent pieces, and other smaller furniture items also seemed to sell well. Larger furniture items like step back cupboards, oversized armoires, and large rugs seemed to be excluded from pieces that were selling well. In addition, coins and firearms also appeared to perform well.
It looks like we are gearing up for a great year for auctions in 2015!
