March 26, 2017. 6:31pm. Prices realized from yesterday's auction have been posted to the website. Click here to view them. (Remember that prices include 18% buyer's premium.)

Thank you to everyone--consignors and bidders--for your strong participation in our March sale! If you were an absentee, phone, or internet bidding on Saturday and were successful, you should receive an invoice--which will, in the majority of cases, include shipping and insurance--by sometime tomorrow morning. In a few cases (for instance, if we do not have an email address on file for you) we will contact you early this week or mail you a paper invoice. PLEASE REMEMBER: If you left a bid for us to execute on your behalf and our selling price is exactly your maximum bid, you may or may not have won the lot depending on whether or not there was another bid that came in at that amount. If you believe that you won something (or you know that you won something--for instance, if you were a live phone bidder) but do not receive an emailed invoice by Monday evening, please feel free to shoot us an email or give us a call.

Our next auction will take place in July (date to be announced soon) and we are already accepting consignments for what will be another excellent sale. If you have one or more pieces you are interested in having us sell for you, please do not hesitate to contact us today for a free, discrete pre-auction evaluation!

Thanks again to everyone--including our AMAZING staff--for contributing to yet another successful sale. Best Regards, The Zipps
