The Benefit Shop of Bedford Hills, which has become the first stop for many local designers and homeowners searching for antiques and collectibles, is going global. With the inaugural auction planned for Sunday, September 21st, collectors can shop and bid from a greatly-expanded inventory of over 500 lots.
Whether viewed at the auction site (an 8,000 sq ft warehouse at 27 Radio Circle, Mt. Kisco, NY) or online at www.thebenefitshop.org, bidding will be easy and accessible. Auction-goers will find items at all price points—from low to lofty—and everyone is invited to join in the fun. Included are period antique and contemporary furniture, original artwork, carpets, lighting, antique and modern decorative objects as well as a large selection of fine quality sterling silver flatware and serving pieces. In addition there are over one hundred lots of period antique to contemporary fine quality jewelry and watches, including many diamond and platinum period Art Deco pieces which have been with the same family for eighty years.
All are invited to preview the items September 18 and 19 from 10am to 5pm and September 20 from 12pm to 6pm. You may also arrive early and preview items the morning of the sale, September 21, from 9am to 11:30am.
Not around that day? Register for absentee bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com or Invaluable.com—both are open for bids for two weeks before the auction. Prior to the auction, call 914-864-0707 to register for telephone bidding.
The full catalog will be posted online by September 5 and will be viewable at thebenefitshop.org and on the Benefit Shop’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/thebenefitshop. Additionally, items will be posted on Instagram @BenefitShopAuctions.
For the next auction in late October, donations and/or consignments are welcome (consignor receives 80% of sale price). Contact Pam Stone at 914-864-1919.
Amazing as the prospect of an awesome auction in Westchester is, perhaps even more extraordinary is that, as a nonprofit, The Benefit Shop distributes all profits to worthy local charities. The largest beneficiaries to date have been Northern Westchester Hospital and the Mt. Kisco Boys and Girls Club. Funds have also been given to over twenty others including the Westmoreland Sanctuary, the SPCA/Humane Society and the Katonah Community Center.
The Benefit Shop is located at 720 Bedford Road, Bedford Hills, NY 10507, 914-864-1919. Visit the only tag sale with a permanent address, Mondays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
