How It Works

We offer appraisals for individual items or estates and provide complete auction services. Green Valley combines items from a variety of sources to create unique and popular auctions that draw in an average of 400-600 individuals and 300-500 absentee bids. This allows the seller access to large crowds for optimal bidding on their treasures with auctions scheduled approximately every other Friday.

To better serve our clients, Green Valley offers a computerized auction program which includes an inventory settlement and guaranteed check within 30 business days following the auction. Regional marketing to a mailing list of over 2,500 Green Valley customers, local and regional advertising, item photos and a video walk-through of our upcoming auctions galleries and dedicated attention to detail create a strong presentation of your items. Catalogued and online auction services are available for special high-end collections.

Gallery #2 begins at 10:00 a.m. and usually finishes around 6:00 p.m. The auction begins with hundreds of box lots of glassware, knick-knacks, pots/pans, etc. and is followed by estate artwork, books and ephemera, antique toys and dolls, collectibles, quality household items, etc.

A second auctioneer begins selling in Gallery #3 at 11:30 a.m. This features basement and outbuilding contents with hand and power tools plus garden accessories and moves into a good selection of used furniture. Gallery #3 finishes around 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on a selection of as-found and primitive furniture and accessories.

3. Do you accept one or two items for consignment or do I need to have an entire house full?

We are a full-service auction house and can handle full and partial estates, plus downsizings, basement and attic clean-outs, etc. We gladly accept small and large consignments and will build an auction that combines several consignors and estates to appeal to bidders.

4. When do you accept Bring-In consignments?

Normally, consignments for auction are taken in on every other Monday. Due to limited storage space, you will need to e-mail us or call us at 540-434-4260 to arrange a specific date.

5. How do you keep consignments from different people separate?

Every consignor is given a code letter(s) and their items are tagged. An inventory is made and updated as the items are sorted. All items are entered into the computer as they are sold. After the sale the computer report is matched to the inventory.
