Details: Our Story
Let me introduce you. Herb was a country kid from the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. He remembers his first auction well. He bought a banjo for $3. The year was 1955.
By 1963, he had migrated to Greenwich Village via Newark, NJ ("forget about it"). He was 15 years old and always thinking.
He persuaded a merchant on Orchard Street to sell him sharkskin suits for $11.25 wholesale. He sold them to his classmates back in New Jersey for $35.
By 1968, he was taking antiques from Pennsylvania to stores in the Village in his Volkswagen van. One thing led to another....
Herb is going into his 25th year at this location in Point Pleasant. As owner and auctioneer he gives special attention in selling your items. He also provides on-site auction services. His reputation for honesty and caring is known throughout the auction and antique business.
