AUGUSTAAUCTIONS now in New York City

Karen Augusta and husband, Bob Ross, are thrilled to announce two exciting changes for 2009 following a successful run of fifteen fashion and textile sales in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Our new company, Augusta Auctions, will now hold sales in New York City, the undisputed fashion capital of the world. The first specialty auction will be held at our mid-town Manhattan hall on April 29, 2009.

These twice yearly NYC sales will offer premier pieces to the international fashion and collector market. Only pieces relating to fashion and textiles will be sold at our auctions: couture, historic, ethnic and vintage fashions and accessories, jewelry, fine linens, heirloom lace, as well as antique printed, woven and embroidered textile treasures from all parts of the globe.

In addition to the spring and fall Manhattan sales, Augusta Auctions will hold one yearly sale at a central New England location. This auction will be scheduled to complement the Brimfield, Massachusetts antique week. Fashion and textile lots chosen specifically for the trade and the now-legendary Discovery Sale of museum and institutional de-accessions will be sold to the highest bidder at our New England location.

We have been invited by ArtFact,, to join a select group of international auction houses to present our auctions online. We will link to ArtFact’s service for internet bidding at our first Manhattan sale this April. Our auctions’ sales results will become a part of their online auction database, providing a convenient place for customers to view prices realized for fashion and textiles.

For inquiries about consigning collections to Augusta Auctions or to be added to our mailing list for future auction announcements, please email:, or call 802-463-3333.
