Let me start by apologizing for Auction #160. It appears that when the Final Bidder Stage went into effect it locked a lot of bidders out of bidding on items that they had previously bid on. This was due to computer maintenance that was not handled properly and resulted in a very unsatisfactory finish to Auction #160. We apologize and are working hard to resolve that problem.
This auction may be one of the strangest and unusual auctions we have had in a very long time. Sample glasses, test glasses, unique advertising pieces, mistakes and lots and lots of Davy Crockett’s and Howdy Doody musical notes. This is truly an auction where you will be required to do a bit of hunting as items may not appear in the category that you would expect them to be in. For example, there are a large number of NCAA Coca-Cola glasses that we have listed under Coca-Cola rather than under sports. Some advertising glasses may be listed under different categories based on character or sponsor.
I am not going to cover items listed in the auction as you will be able to find them during your hunt. Just be aware that there are many items in this auction that we have seldom seen or have not had at all.
Plans going forward are still for our last auction to be in October 2021. Before that time we will attempt to squeeze in as many auctions as possible as long as we have the quality merchandise to do so. While we are no longer buying or accepting large collections for the auction we will continue to take your consignments of 50 glasses or less. If you have special requests, please contact us and we will attempt to work with you. No one has stepped forward to express interest in doing the auction after we retire; however, we do have some thoughts on how our auction platform may be of benefit to the glass collecting community. We definitely would appreciate and solicit your comments and suggestions as it will always be our intention to do what is best for the friends we have developed in this great and wonderful hobby.
We thank you for all the support you have afforded these auctions and for your continued support.
