We are announcing our annual Dave Spahr Fall Select Auction! Thanks for all the great support you have given in the past for this HCA event. The auction will be held in Newark at the GMP Union Hall on October 14, 2023.

The first thing you, as a member, can do to participate is to prepare a list of glass to submit for this auction. A blank list is included on this webpage. Please note, each member is allowed to submit up to forty lots for consideration. Consider making a donation of a piece or two as 100% of the sale price of donated items goes to support HCA and the Museum.

And, remember, donations don’t count towards your 40-lot consignment limit.

Your list may be snail-mailed or emailed to:

This year, as has been the case for each select auction, the consignment fee for each lot will be 20% with a minimum consignment fee of $5. This means that for anything that sells for under $25, the consignment fee will be $5. As you prepare your list, please be as descriptive as possible since the committee will be using it to select glass for the auction.

Pictures are welcomed and encouraged. It is very important that you carefully check for damage. We are selecting only undamaged glass for this special auction. The deadline for submitting your completed list is May 5, 2023. Remember, send just the list. Do not send glass!

The committee’s target is to have an auction with three hundred (300) lots. How can you get your glass selected? Here are some clues. Consideration will be given to include diversity in color, etchings, cuttings and patterns. A main goal in the selection will be to eliminate any duplication of lots. While this auction is mainly for the experienced collector who wants that exotic piece of Heisey, we also would like clean problem free glass for the fledgling collectors just starting out and building their collections. Please note our minimum bid will be $15 so think about that when putting your list and lots together. As mentioned earlier, we will not select damaged glass.

The Select Committee will be busy after May 5th and will contact you on or about June 1 to let you know the glass it has 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 (June 15-17). Please look over your glass and begin your list soon. May 5th will be here before you know it!

This event has been a success for consignors and those purchasing the wonderful Heisey glass included in the auction. Please plan to participate in this auction for the benefit of your Museum.

Our auctions continue to be cost effective options for our buyers. No state taxes are assessed (we are a not-for-profit organization with our proceeds going to support the museum) and the buyer’s premium is waived for check or cash payments. Hopefully you will remember that when consigning glass to us or buying glass from us.

If you have any questions, please contact me at 240-361-8146.
