If no alternative shipper is identified by the winning bidder, then Boxstop will pick up items on Sunday and take them to their warehouse for storage until the items are paid for and shipped.

J. Phil Smith of Jackson, Kentucky was a great leader- a veritable "Who's Who in the World"; not only in his business life, but also in his charitable and educational endeavors.  His interests took him traveling as well and you will see the results of those travels and purchases at this auction.

We are featuring a great collection of antique silver, in addition to antiquarian books, some first editions.  We also will sell a Mason County, Kentucky style chest that we believe could be a Tuttle in addition to a myriad of paintings, prints, furniture, and decorative items. Something for everyone!

Please join us for the auction which will start on Saturday, July 30 at 10:00 AM EST.  The auction site will be at the Clarion Hotel, 1950 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY.  40511.  You can also pre-bid and/or bid live during the auction on the Invaluable website.  We will also accept phone bidding for this auction but you must be registered and schedule your phone bid by 5:00 PM EST Friday, July 29.  To register and schedule your phone bid, please call Teri Swartz at (859) 498-0208.
