Why we collect

My wife and I got into the auction and estate business for a variety of reasons, but one of the main ones was that we like to collect things.  Over time our interests have changed a bit, but the enjoyment of searching for and researching different types of treasures still remains one of the highlights of our spare moments.

One of the fun parts of our job is talking with other collectors.  Everyone has their passion and whether someone collects postcards or Victorian furniture or tractor seats, they have their own distinctive stories about the search and discovery of their many treasures.  I’ve even heard stories of collectors who liquated their entire collection and then started over – searching for more elusive items!

We hope, at Capitol Auction in Salem, that we can help you find one of your treasures.  If you attend our auctions, please be sure to let us know what you’re looking for.  As collectors, we know that you can never know when you might come across the next find.

Hope to see you soon,
