Welcome to Thompsons Auctioneers, our sales are held every Friday, starting at 11.30 am in our saleroom, where we average around 800 to 1000 lots, with the sale completing around 3.30pm on a Friday afternoon.
All our Friday sales are split into categories of large and small items. We constantly receive a new weekly stock of small antique jewellery, including rings, bracelets, brooches, necklaces and watches. Everything can be bought and sold at Thompson’s, from coins and collectables, to brooches and bicycles, up to wicker baskets and wardrobes. It’s all here!
This weeks sale 5th February 2016 will contain lots that are being sold for a VAT registered vendor and VAT at the appropriate rate will be added to the hammer price, as well as the buyers premium. These lots will be marked with a * in the catalogue.
Therefore if you were to purchase a lot for £100, you would pay 20% VAT on the hammer price plus 20% commission and VAT on the hammer price. The total you would pay is £144.00. To illustrate this further: (£100+£20*+£20+£4*) * is the VAT element.
