19/03/2012 : The Willows Sale and Homes & Antiques Magazine Awards
On the 8th March 2012, Homes and Antiques Magazine held their annual award ceremony Britain’s Best Antiques Shops. Adam Partridge Auctioneers were the only auction house in the North West nominated in the Best Auction House category along with auctioneers from Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Leyburn. The eventual winners were McTear’s in Glasgow but Adam Partridge came away with a Highly Commended certificate presented by Kirstie Allsopp. We would like to thank all of the readers of Homes & Antiques Magazine who voted for us.
The Willows Clearance Sale which took place in Salford on the 17th March was a great success. The Willows Variety Centre has gone into administration and asked Adam Partridge Auctioneers to hold an auction in their centre to help clear out everything before the site was demolished. There were many industrial and commercial items sold such as ovens, dishwashers, dining furniture and crockery and the site was busy all day with many more buyers on the internet.
We have a busy few months coming up at Adam Partridge Auctioneers, starting with the next sale which is Antiques & Fine Art with Northern & Contemporary Art on the 19th and 20th April (closing date for entries 26th March, viewing 18th April). Only 8 short days later we have the Sporting & Country Pursuits with Militaria & Sporting Memorabilia sale on the 28th April (closing date for entries 2nd April, viewing 27th April), and then on May 24th and 25th we have the Antiques & Fine Arts with Oriental & Asian Art sale which we’re very excited about and have had some great items in for (closing date for entries 30th April, viewing 23rd May).
