Historically, the auction industry has relied upon the Three Ds for consignment: death, divorce, and disaster (or debt). These days, the Fourth D has been added: downsizing. As the Baby Boom Generation heads full-tilt into their retirement years, many collectors are looking to simplify their lives and downsize to smaller quarters. This, of course, requires the dispersal of most, if not all, of a lifetime collection. To do so is no easy feat. Based upon his decade of experience, Andrew will offer not only practical tips on how to sell your collection at auction, but also, and perhaps more importantly, how to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself to say goodbye to many old friends.
