Auctioneer Notes

Welcome to another edition of Sunflower Seeds.  Business has been good here at Sunflower Auction, and we have already put together a nice auction calendar for the rest of the year.  The summer schedule starts this weekend with a nice auction with some great coins, firearms, sports memorabilia, jewelry and camera equipment.  We'll be selling real estate and personal property later this summer, and we'll really get rolling this fall with a militaria and firearm auction and wrap up the year with a spectacular Sports, Historical, Political and Entertainment Memorabilia auction.  Please review the full auction calendar below.  Even with these great sales lined up, we're not resting on our laurels just yet.  We're aggressively seeking the biggest and best collections and estates containing coins, currency, firearms, militaria, historical artifacts, personality items, sports memorabilia, art pottery, art glass, antique dolls and antique toys.  The power of our eBay feedback rating coupled with a rock bottom commission rate should be very appealing to those of you thinking about selling your collection.  I hope to speak with you personally in the coming weeks about this exciting opportunity.  Don't hesitate to give me a call.

For those of you who haven't been to our gallery before, we are located just off 161st Street and Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park, Kansas.  We are located in a 10,000 square foot building with large signs on the front of the building.  It is very easy to find and very accessible.  We are located approximately 50 minutes from Kansas City International Airport and 25 minutes from downtown Kansas City.  I hope to see you in person at an upcoming event.

1. 2007 Dresden Days Street Fair - July 28, 31, August 3. We will have a booth again this year on the streets of Dresden, Ohio for the annual Dresden Days. Please stop by our booth to register for Longaberger prizes and meet our auction staff.  We will be traveling the states of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio picking up all types of auction consignments all week. Please contact us today to schedule your pickup date and time.  We will have plenty of trailer space for large collections again this year.

2. New Lower Commission Rates.  Commission rates on large collections and estates are negotiable based on the quantity and quality of the items being offered and the amount of work involved in preparing the items for auction.  For a limited time, we are offering 0% sellers commission on amounts over $100,000.  Please contact us for an initial consultation.  We generally charge a flat or tiered commission on each item, and the seller generally pays the advertising and moving costs.  All commissions and fees are deducted at the end of the process, so you pay nothing upfront and we provide insurance coverage on your items while they are in our possession.

Of course, fees are really only half the story.  We strongly believe that the most important factors that determine the selling price of an item are the knowledge and reputation of the seller.  We earn our commission by achieving the highest selling price possible for you!  Our research indicates that we earn most, if not all, of our commission solely from achieving higher than average selling prices
