If you need to get out of the sun this weekend, consider attending the Summer Auction at Galway Auction Rooms, Kilcolgan.
Over 800 lots will be offered for sale on Sunday August 14 with articles of Irish art by Michael Hales, Arthur Maderson, Markey Robinson, Elizabeth Brophy, Grahame Knuttel and many others.
Antique collectibles including Waterford Glass, Hummels, garden furniture, locks, books and vinyl will also be on offer during the auction.
With the ‘green’ ethos in mind, it is worth considering ‘Antiques are Green’, a 150 year old chest that is estimated at €200/300 and is probably in a good condition for another 150 years. This is a much better green alternative than a semi-plastic flat pack that has no longevity in the home.
So, Kilcolgan for viewing on Saturday with the full open auction taking place on Sunday at 12pm.
