A CRACKING quartet of sale days bookended by appearances at two of our local shows will be keeping all of us at Richard Winterton Auctioneers busy as the summer season gets into full swing.
On Sunday (July 14) we will be at the Ashby Show - look out for our marquee decked out with a display of some of the fascinating and fabulous things we handle in the auction world!
Then Monday (July 15) sees our inaugural Watch & Designer Sale at 6pm in St Mary’s in the Market Square in the heart of Lichfield city centre. We'll also be doing our regular free valuations of watches, jewellery and designer items at St Mary's that day from 9.30am-12.30pm.
As well as items including Chanel handbags and Rolex watches, the designer auction includes a trio of charity lots in aid of We Love Lichfield – a cricket bat signed by cricketer Graeme Swann and sports broadcaster Pat Murphy, a 2019 ICC World Cup England jersey fully signed by the England team at Edgbaston before the semi final against Australia and, courtesy of Michael’s Menswear, a limited edition RAF Red Arrows 2019 signed by ‘Red 1’ to ‘Red 10’ and the aerobatic team’s commanders.
Viewing will be at The Lichfield Auction Centre on Saturday, July 13, from 9.30am until noon and then at St Mary’s in the Market Square, Lichfield city centre, on the Monday from midday.
