News-Antique.com - Jun 12,2011 - The latest (and greatest?) installment of our ongoing monthly -- or thereabouts -- roundup of unusual, surprising, and/or interesting antique auction sales, both online and off.
Colonial Sense is an eclectic web site, covering a variety of topics related to early American living and the colonial sensibility. In addition to original articles and content, CS also provides information for lovers of All Things Colonial: an event calendar, forums, antique auction results, marketplace, latest news about the era, and more.
In addition to the original articles covering various aspects of antiques, Colonial Sense also (usually on a monthly basis) gathers together information from a variety of sources about antique auction results that fetched prices that greatly exceeded -- or, sometimes, did not meet -- the expected sale price. In addition, Colonial Sense will sometimes add entries of interest for unusual items that are of note simply because of their rarity.
Antique auctions (and shows, estate sales and the like) can be found in Colonial Sense's Event Calendar, which covers, in addition to events about antiques, craft shows, exhibitions, and most any other event that would be appealing to colonial-philes. The event calendar is fully searchable by state, date range, event type, keyword and more.
