  • Our firm represents museums, historical societies, universities and other institutions bringing to market museum de-accessions & patron donations, with sale proceeds earmarked to benefit their permanent collections. We also represent individuals & select estates in liquidation of rare items and collections that complement our spring and fall catalogued fashion and textile auction sales.

    Consignors, both institutional and individual, are assured that their textile treasures will be treated with respect and will benefit from our targeted marketing program directed to a world-wide customer base.

    Serious buyers from the international fashion, museum, film and textile worlds journey to New Hope, Pennsylvania to attend our seasonal specialty sales. Consignments receive spirited bidding from knowledgeable auction-goers in our gallery, through absentee, telephone and internet bids.
