Diane’s Auction Picks Annual New Year’s December 26th & 27th, 2015
As I say good-by to 2015 I am excited to announce our new mobile friendly website that will launch just after the first of the year ! You will now be able to preview, and bid seamlessly from your tablet or mobile phone.
It has been awhile since I have updated my blog due to all the new things going on at Kaminski Auctions, but I came up with the idea to give you highlights of what is coming up in our auctions, by sharing some of my favorite auction picks.
I have to qualify my choices. I have selected things that are my taste, and things I would like to decorate my home with. They are not necessarily the finest antiques in the auction but they are the ones I feel have tremendous visual impact and interest to any decor.
The Annual New Year’s Auction takes place December 26th and 27th, Saturday and Sunday, 2015 at our auction gallery at 117 Elliott Street, RT.62, Beverly, Massachusetts starting at 10:00 am. Visit our website at www.kaminskiauctions.com for more information on each of these items and sign p to bid with KaminskiLIVE.
