Auctioneer's Notes

Welcome to another edition of Sunflower Seeds. Well, 2006 sure ended with a bang as we held a two-day Antique Toy auction on December 8th and 9th at our gallery in conjunction with eBay Live Auctions. The event drew over 1,300 registered bidders from 23 countries and grossed over $100,000 for our seller! We are all quite pleased with the marketing power we are able to generate with this new auction format. In the coming months, we will be focusing on some new areas that show great promise: coins, firearms and militaria. These areas of the market are hot, and we have the product knowledge and expertise to make a successful auction. Look for auctions in these areas this spring. If we can assist you with a collection of this type, please give me a call. We offer very competitive rates for the best items and largest collections.

As a company, we are now focusing on real estate, estates, large collections and eBay Live auctions. Our emphasis is still on antiques and decorative arts, but we have also recently branched out into business liquidations. Our goal is to handle every aspect of our clients' auction needs. We have all felt the power of eBay Live Auctions, and our sellers have been extremely pleased with the results. I would love to talk with you about harnessing this new tool to achieve top results for your collection. Please give me a call if there is anything I can do for you!

Company News

1. Federal Firearms License - Sunflower Auction, LLC has applied to become a federally-licensed firearms dealer. Once the process is complete, we will be able to handle the sale of firearms in our gallery with the capability to conveniently transfer ownership on-site. We will use Proxibid to facilitate the sale of firearms to a worldwide audience, as firearm sales are not allowed on eBay. We are aggressively seeking large firearms collections to sell this spring. Please contact us if you have this type of collection. We offer competitive rates for the best items and largest collections.

2. Real Estate - Gregg Pfister, President of Sunflower Auction, LLC is now licensed to sell real estate in Kansas and Missouri. David Schulman with Schulman and Associates, LLC is our licensed broker in Kansas and Missouri. We have been approached by numerous clients over the years wanting to sell real estate as part of an estate or because they were moving. In the past, we have simply referred the business to other professionals, but now we are able to handle all aspects of the real estate sale in-house. This is a natural extension of the estate and auction services we already offer, and this makes Sunflower Auction a one-stop-shop for complete auction and appraisal services. If we can assist you with the sale of residential or commercial real estate, please give us a call. We offer both traditional and auction selling methods, and we can also conveniently sell your personal property. Look for real estate listings to start appearing on the web site soon.

3. eBay Live Auctions - Sunflower Auction, LLC is now the highest rated eBay seller on the eBay Live Auctions platform. We just completed an Antique Toy auction on eBay Live Auction on December 8th and 9th that grossed over $100,000 for our seller. We registered over 1,300 bidders from 23 countries! This is the kind of marketing power we can bring to your estate or collection. Please give us a call to discuss your selling options today!
