We wanted to take a second to say hello and keep you in the loop on what's new with Manion's International Auction House.
Upcoming Travel and Consignment Pick-up
Looks like our next "on the road" event will be Old Fort MacArthur Days, July 12th and 13th at the Fort MacArthur Museum located in Angels Gate Park in San Pedro, California. This is an amazing event, and has been the largest continually running re-enactment and living history timeline event in the West for over 20 years. We're partnering with Vintage Productions and will be accepting consignment - if you live in the area and have items to consign, get them packed up and bring them to the event. Give us a call in advance and we'll be expecting you! Can't make it out? Let us know and we will try to arrange a pick-up.
Expanding to Meet Your Needs
Now is a great time to consign with Manion's. We have been receiving more items to sell than ever before, and we've added additional staff to keep the process flowing smooth. In addition, we've stepped up our advertising endeavors to include collectors in the UK and mainland Europe. We have new bidders signing up each and every day - almost every hour!
Historic Aviation Collection
As many of you may have noticed, we are currently promoting the historic aviation collection of Harry C. Block, Jr. Mr. Block collected aviation related material from a young age. He made personal contact with aviation pioneers spanning from the Wright Brothers to modern day, the collection includes items from: Lafayette Escadrille, Charles Lindberg, Amelia Earhart, Hap Arnold, President Eisenhower, Jimmy Doolittle, and so many more. Nearly 400 legendary generals, fighter aces, and other aviation pioneers are included in this astounding collection. The auction closes on July 20 - so there is still plenty of time to bid. To learn more about the collection, and view all items available, simply visit the home page and click the "Wright Brothers to Right Now" banner in the center of the page.
Collectibles Insurance Services
We'd like to welcome our friends from Collectibles Insurance Services, LLC. They provide an excellent service to the collecting community that is often overlooked. As a company founded by fellow collectors, they understand a collection is worth so much more than just money. And as experts in collectibles insurance, they know standard homeowner's insurance isn't enough to replace your treasures.
List it Yourself Auction
We're proud to say our List it Yourself auction service just exceeded 1000 registered members! It is growing bit by bit every day, and is on the way to being a premier place to turn to sell militaria and collectibles - especially those unfairly restricted by other Internet auctions.
Well folks, we jumped on the MySpace bandwagon - check out our page and be our friend!
That's it for now, and as always; please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance in any way. Until next time - happy collecting!
