Bill is "The Boss." He does all of the buying, as well as receiving most of the consignments from dealers. He writes many auctions and has the final say on any item that gets listed. His passion is what fuels this business. He loves his job and works 7 days a week. He’s a true workaholic!
Wendy is Bill's wife and is the Matriarch of the family. The grand-kids call her, "Gida" and she keeps us all happy! She watches the grandchildren while we work, makes sure we are all fed and happy and has total control over all of the money that goes in and out of the business!
Yaya is Bill's youngest daughter. She is the main Auction-lister. She also is our number one researcher and great at deciphering artist signatures. And since she drinks the most water, she constantly changes the Poland Springs jug on the water cooler in the office.
Lindsey, Bill's second oldest daughter, is "Sergeant-at-Arms." She is in charge of consignment intake and keeps the business going smoothly. She also fixes, repairs and gets the majority of the items ready and in the line up for daily photography, and has her hands in almost every aspect of the business. She also handles damage claims and assists on solving problems. Lindsey's most important job is making sure everyone stays on track.
Amanda is our Jacquuelyn-of-all trades. She answers
95% of the daily emails, handles shipping quotes, photographs, does all the photo editing, and schedules deliveries. She also helps organize the consignments and answers the majority of the phone calls. We rely on her memory a lot because she keeps us organized.
Meagan is Gida's right hand! She works outside of the office, and does all the housework and wrangling all of the children!! Without her we would have a very stressed Gida, and none one wants a upset matriarch!
William is our newest and youngest employee, and Lindsey & Richard's oldest son. He works a few days a week after high school, doing all the everyday tasks, it takes to run this business smoothly.
Darlene is our accountant who keeps the financial side of the business organized. She is also in charge of the Consignment accounts, which includes duties like cutting consignor checks. We consider her the
"Mother Hen" of our group who keeps us on our toes with her dry humor.
Stacy is our lead photographer ! She answers phones and she also helps with entering consignment items. She often needs a help reaching things but she keeps us laughing with her witty one-liners.
Briana is our latest auction lister, she picked up our
listings style quick and gets a bunch of items that are easy
to look up and research, which is allowing us to list more auctions then ever before.
Richard is Lindsey's husband and is our full-time packer. He packs every item that leaves the office and has earned a few nicknames including "The Packing Master."
We receive emails all the time about how well an item was received. He also drives the truck to UPS, and
to get packing materials.
Brianna is our second auction lister. She has been here
for about 5 years and went from knowing nothing about antiques to being able to list items on her own. She is trained
in just about every area from paperwork, to packing and making shipping labels. She can easily fill in for anyone
who is out sick or on vacation.
