We are gearing up and will soon release our fees. But would love feedback on the catgories you would like to see. This is your chance to be involved in this MCM Auction site.

Thank You

The advantages would be all items dealing with Mid Century.

Lower fees--Lower final value fees--a less expensive way to buy and sell.
We are looking at this site to be the way eBay was when it started.

So Join the fun--Make your suggestions

Honestly? May I humbly suggest that I'd like and hope to see only authentic pieces? Nothing turns me off more than being attracted to an auction listing just to find out that the item being offered is a cheap copy made in China.

Re: the Reproductions. It's true. We thought we'd let reproductions on our site as long as they were SPECIFICALLY listed as reproductions in the spirit of democratizing design and making it accessible to even those who can't afford the real thing, but we've had a lot of users say they'd rather not have them on the site.

We're doing upgrades in the next month to delete the reproduction section and add way more functionality, so definitely I would say steer clear of letting people list reproductions on your site.

Oh! And check out Wright20.com for ideas - they're the premier mid-century auction house. Richard Wright is a wonderful fellow and very generous with his knowledge.
