In the '70s, Sanford's son and son-in-law joined the family business, which now has more than 50 years of experience in auctioneering, dealing in estates, fine art, antiques, and collectibles. Located in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, Alderfer Auction holds four catalog sales each year as well as live on-site auctions, often with online bidding.
