Another very good demand throughout the sale with a good percentage of buyers in the room and strong commission and internet bidding following a very busy two days of viewing. Tuesday evening to 7pm proving very popular.
When we went online we thought that it would be only the smaller items attracting the main interest, but there was a surprisingly high percentage of furniture and pictures that were sold online.
