I would like to thank everyone who attended our Summer sale Tuesday evening, as well as our hard working staff, who made it a true success.  I would also like to thank the staff and management of Plymouth Memorial Hall, a simply exceptional venue in the heart of America's Hometown!  

The crowd was buzzing, the air conditioning ice cold and the auction red hot.  The Bartending service of New England was pouring well needed drinks and Chef Steve Coe served up some truly amazing culinary creations.  As I took to my pulpit, I saw smiles and heard laughter, the energy was truly positive.  I just love what I do!

In three and one half hours we sold 286 lots of Antiques, Art and Furniture.  Watches Jewelry, Silver and Paintings proved to be our strongest categories, with fierce competition and active bidding.  The collection of Pub signs also was a favorite.  A beautiful vintage Geneve Universal watch climbed to $2,000 and eclipsed my expectations as did the early wood carved Madonna at $800.  I love these diverse sales, there is something for everyone.

Silver and gold appear to be on the mend with prices creeping higher.  We have some high quality English Sterling Flatware in our September sale and some fine jewelry.  I am taking in some period furniture next week and a 60's Rolex watch.  Looking forward to our art and Antiques sale, September 10th at 6:00 PM.  Thank you again for supporting J. James Auctioneers & Appraisers, America's Hometown Auction.  I hope to see you in September!
