2018 ANNUAL HEISEY FALL SELECT AUCTION
Last month we announced our Fourteenth Annual All Heisey Fall Select Auction. It is scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2018, and will be held at the BMP Union Hall, 350 Hudson Ave. in Newark OH. Thanks for all the past support you have given for this Fall fundraiser for the National Heisey Glass Museum. Please place this date on your calendar – October 20, 2018.
This article is a reminder to get your list of the glass ready to submit for consideration by the committee. The deadline for submitting your glass list is May 15, 2018. A blank Consignor Glass List for you to use is on this website. Please note the two sided blank list contains space for forty lots. Each member is allowed to submit forty lots for the committee to select from. Remember, this auction benefits your museum. Please consider selecting a special piece of Heisey for a donation to be auctioned off – 100% of the sale price goes to support HCA and the Museum. Donations don’t count towards your 40 lot limit and you don’t have to consign glass to make a donation! To continue our tradition for this event, we are maintaining our low consignment fee of 20% with a minimum consignment fee of $5. This means anything that sells for $25 or less the consignment fee will still be $5.
As you prepare your lists, please make them as descriptive as possible since the committee will be using them to select glass for the Auction. In particular, please check for damage – we are selecting only undamaged glass for this special Fall Auction. The committee’s goal this year is to have a 300 lot Auction. This of course depends on you – we need sufficient lists of good clean damage free glass!!
How can you get your glass selected? Here are some clues. Consideration will be given to include diversity in color, etchings, cuttings, and patterns. We want no duplicates and glass for both the novice and experienced collector. Please make sure you size each lot so it is worth at least $25 – and I know it is a guess! The minimum opening bid will be $15.00. As mentioned earlier, we will not select damaged glass.
The selection committee will be busy after May 15th and will contact you on or about June 1 to let you know which lots of glass from your list have been selected. Hopefully, you will be able to bring your glass to Newark and drop it off at the Museum when you come to the Convention on June 13-16, 2018. Your deadline for getting glass to the Museum is July 22, 2018.
This event has been a successful Fall moneymaker for HCA and a benefit to those who consign and those who buy Heisey glass. Plan on attending the Auction. You will see old and make new Heisey friends and get some wonderful Heisey! If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help at this Auction, please contact Jack Burriss, at curator@HeiseyMusuem.org, 740-345-2932 x4.
